Quality Deer Management Association

BOGART, Ga. --(Ammoland.com)-Once again, the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) will award deserving students with scholarships to attend a Deer Steward course in 2013.

For each of the in-person Deer Steward Certification Courses offered this year, QDMA will present at least one student with a scholarship to attend free-of-charge.

Applications will be accepted from high school juniors and seniors or college students who are interested in a career in wildlife management.

QDMA’s Individual Certification Program includes three levels of potential achievement: Deer Steward I, II, and III. Level I provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the four cornerstones of QDM: herd management, habitat management, hunter management, and herd monitoring. Level II focuses on the application of these principles through hands-on field experience. Level III must be earned through an individual’s long-term service to QDMA and/or the white-tailed deer. Courses must be taken in succession.

2013 Dates and Locations

  • Level I Course:
    • May 17-20 – Fairfield, Iowa – Field Trip: Lee and Tiffany Lakosky’s personal farm
  • Level II Courses:
    • June 7-10 – Branson, Missouri, at The Proving Grounds (as seen on GrowingDeer.TV)
    • August 16-19 – Andersonville, Tennessee, at a University of Tennessee demonstration area

Course details along with scholarship applications are posted at www.QDMA.com. Navigate to the Deer Steward page under the “Advanced Ed” menu.

Applications must be received by March 1, 2013.

Interested students can contact Matt Ross, QDMA Certification Programs Manager, at mross@qdma.com or (518) 280-3714 with questions.
