I agree completely that its an advertisement.

If you want to check out their site, its www.qdma.org

Its just about controlling the does in the herd, and letting smaller bucks walk so they can get bigger. That's the jist of it.

They've got a forum over there too, so I hear, and I've heard there's a lot of folks over there that like to brag about having their own magic potion to growing deer, rather than sharing great info like we do here.

Well I'm all for Big Deer but this just seems to be putting $$ in somebodies pocket.

Managing Deer is not Rocket Science even though some would want you to think so.

Oneshot...I hate to tell you this, but you can turn deer herd management into rocket science. One article in the latest Quality Whitetails magazine described how the soils in all of America came to be...from the nice black loam in the Ag belt to the rocky clay stuff down south...it really is kinda eye opening.

There is alot of research and development that goes into food plots, soil amendments, habitat enhancements, taking harvest and observation data, when to do it, why to do it and so on and so on...lots of farmers already know the basics, but educated farmer want to be's, just have to know the science behind it.

QDM is about learning your property, your herd, and your objectives...it can give you lots of information.

I just don't like advertising that my propery is managed for 4-5 year old bucks that average 140", and that we strive to have a 2-1 doe to buck average, which causes intense scraping, rubbing, and lots and lots of deer activity...if everyone in the neighborhood realizes this, then those who don't want to invest the time and effort into doing this, then they will just hop the fence and help themselves. I would rather bring you to the property, show you our results, cook you a nice venison roast and talk you into joining your property into a larger deer heaven.

Another part of QDM...cooperative efforts, joining many smaller parcels into a large of managed property. Turns alot of heads when people see your results...or it used to before telecheck.
