I don't necessarily agree with everything that the QDMA preaches, but they do have some good information. O0

QDMAs 2009 Whitetail Report Now Available

by Pursue The Outdoors on January 27th, 2009 in Wildlife

On January 15 at the SHOT Show in Orlando, Florida, the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) unveiled the Whitetail Report, a detailed look at the status of whitetail populations and deer hunting in North America. Intended as a reference for the outdoor media, the Whitetail Report focuses on emerging issues and current challenges facing the whitetail. The document includes useful facts, statistics and science compiled by QDMA that will provide outdoor communicators with article ideas, valuable reference material, and quotes to use throughout the coming year.

Among many topics in the 68-page report, you will find:

Trends in yearling-buck harvest rates and antlerless harvest, including state-by-state statistics.
A look at the top states in harvest of mature bucks (3 1/2 years old or older).
Trends in youth hunter recruitment and other deer-hunter demographics.
The economic impact of deer hunting compared to other forms of hunting.
The latest on the impacts of hemorrhagic disease (HD) and chronic wasting disease (CWD).
Deer-vehicle collision data, and other suburban deer management issues.
Plus, many other current issues, as well as supplemental information on Quality Deer Management techniques, whitetail biology and the latest in deer research.

The white-tailed deer is the foundation of the entire hunting industry. Of active North American hunters, 78 percent hunt whitetails, more than the combined percentages for wild turkey, pheasant, quail, waterfowl, grouse, elk, mule deer and coyotes (survey by Responsive Management and the NSSF, 2008). QDMA created the Whitetail Report to provide outdoor writers, editors and communicators with a yearly health report for whitetails and - by extension - the hunting industry.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
