Deer Summit

Deer Summit

NEWARK, New York- Over the past two years the North American Deer Summit has met twice to address issues facing deer and deer hunting.  The first Summit spawned the National Deer Alliance (NDA) which led to the most recent Summit where plans were set in motion to address many of the issues threatening deer and deer hunting. The support that has surfaced for this event has been vital to its early success.  

“Without the help of a great number of sponsors from across the outdoor community, this year’s Summit would not have been possible, stated Craig Dougherty, Executive Director of the National Deer Alliance. “The generosity and interest that has been shown by several of the top companies and organizations within the hunting and outdoor industry has been nothing less than incredible and we can’t thank everyone enough for their contributions.”

Top supporters of the North American Deer Summit in 2015 were Bass Pro Shops, U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, Whitetails Unlimited, Cabela’s, QDMA, National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Mule Deer Foundation.

In 2015, the event saw nearly 300 participants attend. “This year’s Summit exceeded last year’s in both attendance and work output”, remarked Dougherty. “We have our sponsors to thank for that and we are looking forward to doing our part to help solve many of the issues facing deer and deer hunting.”

Membership in the NDA is free and includes a comprehensive weekly e-newsletter on all things deer including: deer behavior, biology, hunting techniques and breakthroughs as well as issues impacting deer and deer hunting in North America.
