Whitetail Deer: The Big Picture

Did you ever wonder which states harvest the most mature deer (those 3.5 years and older)? How has hemorrhagic disease affected the deer population of your state, or the one where you plan to hunt? Curious about trends in deer harvests by weapon type? The Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) publishes an annual report that’s basically the “State of the Whitetail Union,” and it’s packed with information to help hunters and deer stewards make decisions about the best places to hunt and the general health of whitetail deer. You can buy a copy of the 64-page report for $10 or download it for free.
