On Tuesday, March 5, the Middle Tennessee Chapter of QDMA will meet at the TWRA Region II Headquarters in the Ellington Agricultural Center. We are excited to have nationally renowned whitetail guru and QDM authority Dr. Craig Harper as our speaker. Dr. Harper will discuss all aspects of implementing a successful QDM program, including genetics, nutrition, age, and expectations.

Dr. Harper is famous for mixing science with his vast experience to create a common sense approach to successful food plots and whitetail management. He is a farmer, habitat manager, a speaker, a biologist, a hunter, a writer and a quality deer manager. Dr. Harper also recently survived a serious fall while checking one of his lock-on deer stands. With this array of experiences, I expect his seminar to be riveting.

We’re also extremely grateful to Tennessee Farmer’s Cooperative (TFC) for providing food and drinks for our social hour. The TFC and the Co-ops have come a long way from just helping local farmers. Now, they sell the same products to anyone wanting to grow things such as gardens, lawns, and even big deer!

Please come out a little early (around 6:00 p.m.) for some food and festivity. The program will start at 7:00. Hope to see you there!

Dr. Harper is one the best speakers out there. I never get tired of hearing his perspective. He is a wealth of knowledge on many aspects of habitat management, especially warm-season grasses, old-field management for wildlife, and various hardwood forest management techniques. He is one of the few people I know who is an expert in the use of fire as a management technique in hardwood environments.

I'm glad you asked. Our local meetings are always open to the public. We appreciate your membership in the national organization but we do not require it to attend. I hope everyone can make it tonight. Don't forget that our social hour will start at 6:00 with snacks and refreshments provided by our sponsor Tennessee Farmers Coop. The program begins at 7:00.

It was a very nice meeting,what I took home was dont kill itif you want to see it grow up,minerals arent necessary but they make us feel good and dont feed.I also learned that the deer in Tennessee really have great potential,the biggest problem is we dont let them REACH that potential.

Dr. Harper gave a great presentation last night and he shared some really eye opening statistics. I really enjoyed it.

I guess it all depends on what you consider "great" potential. In my area, I get to see quite a few bucks that have reached 90+% of their potential, but that isn't what most "trophy" hunters would consider great (or even acceptable).

I too had a great time at the meeting last night! I think Dr. Harper could talk about paint drying and make it entertaining!


The facts he presented were very eye opening.

Great job Guys!
