COLUMBUS, OH --(AmmoLand.com)- The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife was recently honored with the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) Agency of the Year Award.

Each year, QDMA recognizes a state Department of Natural Resources for its dedication to the quality deer management philosophy and the positive results it has yielded. The ODNR Division of Wildlife has realized extraordinary results from new programs it has established, as well as through continued efforts to maintain excellence in seasoned programs.

Some examples of white-tailed deer management improvements enacted last fall by the Division of Wildlife include making a reduced-cost permit available during archery season that resulted in the harvest of more antlerless deer earlier in the season, as well as the harvest of fewer bucks than in previous years. Other programs that positively affect Ohio’s deer herd include numerous controlled deer hunts, including hunts designated for people with mobility disabilities, youth and women. The goal of the hunts is to present those who do not have access to hunting an opportunity to harvest game.

“It’s an honor to accept this award on behalf of the ODNR Division of Wildlife, especially when you consider the caliber of programs that Ohio is competing with for this distinction,” said Mike Tonkovich, wildlife research biologist and deer project leader for the Division of Wildlife.

Founded in 1988, QDMA is a national nonprofit wildlife conservation organization with more than 50,000 members in all 50 states and Canada, and several foreign countries. To learn more about QDMA, call 800-209-3337 or visit www.QDMA.com.
