This week, we are joined by Wildlife Biologist, Taxidermist & Director of Conservation at QDMA (Quality Deer Management Association), Kip Adams. Kip has been with QDMA for over 16 years and is a wealth of knowledge about everything deer. We discuss shed hunting and what you can learn about a deer from their sheds, why food plots are so important, the many amazing programs QDMA has for adults and children, and why Kip believes forming a unified body for all hunters would be beneficial. If you enjoy wildlife and our wild places, this one is full of fun facts and great information for all nature lovers.
