Deer Hunters Wanted.  

May 26, 2019

Per the QDMA Whitetail Report, hunters pursue whitetail deer more than any other species and whitetail hunters contribute financially more than any other hunter segment.  Whitetails are the foundation of the hunting industry.  Because of this impressive impact QDMA releases an annual report that goes deep into data and identifies trends that affect the whitetail's world and the hunters that hunt them.  We thought that it only appropriate to invite Kip Adams back to discuss the highlights of this year's report, as we did last year.  We plan to make it an annual event.
