The North American Whitetail Summit was the brainchild of the Quality Deer Management Association. It took place in Branson, Mo., from March 3 to 6, and I attended the entire summit.
Organized to bring together leaders of the whitetail world, the summit was host to conservation organization leadership, biologists from federal and state agencies, hunting industry manufacturers, outdoor media, land managers, concerned hunters and more.
“We are here to identify top priorities of key whitetail stakeholder groups. We are looking for similarities but also differences. We need to voice concerns and come together to address them,” said Brian Murphy, CEO of the association.
