The mission of the QDMA is “To ensure the future of white-tailed deer, wildlife habitat and our hunting heritage.” QDMA promotes sustainable, high quality white-tailed deer populations, wildlife habitats, and ethical hunting experiences through education, research, and management in partnership with hunters, landowners, natural resource professionals, and the public.
Membership in the QDMA is open to anyone with an interest in the wise management of white-tailed deer. The QDMA believes that the time has come for all deer hunting enthusiasts, regardless of their choice of weapon or hunting technique, to unite and focus on the common thread that binds them all together – the love of deer hunting and the desire that future generations will be able to experience the great tradition of deer hunting.
All proceeds go to support the Puckett Homestead, a 500 acre property in Troy, SC. This property is managed exclusively for Wildlife/Outdoor Education and Research, and to pass on our Hunting Heritage to first time Hunters and Wounded Veteran Hunters.
