QDMA will present the “State of the Whitetail” report at the 2017 Archery Trade Association (ATA) Trade Show in Indianapolis, Indiana. Kip Adams, QDMA’s Director of Education & Outreach, will lead the presentation on Thursday, January 12 in ATA’s Academy Seminars.
The State of the Whitetail is based on QDMA’s 2017 Whitetail Report, an annual look at the status of whitetails, the most critical game species to the North American hunting industry.
Adams will present an overview of the latest whitetail statistics, current deer harvest numbers, and existing trends and issues impacting hunters and deer management programs. He’ll also cover the age structure of the buck harvest by state and its impact on whitetail harvests and hunter success. The 2017 Whitetail Report also takes a look at deer harvest separated by archery and firearms, trends in buck bag limits by state, baiting and feeding regulations by state, the growth of QDM Cooperatives, and much more.
Adams will speak in Room 133 of the Indiana Convention Center from 7:15 a.m. to 8:15 a.m., prior to the opening of the third day of the ATA Show at 8:30 a.m.
QDMA’s complete 2017 Whitetail Report will soon be available for free download at the QDMA website, and printed copies will be available for purchase as well. Previous Whitetail Reports are available for download.
