Annual Deer Summit Takes Place in Texas
The National Deer Alliance’s (NDA) 2017 North American Deer Summit will take place June 7-8 in Austin, Texas. The two day event will include sessions that hit on deer management topics such as the state of white-tailed and mule deer in North America, chronic wasting disease (CWD) and the political and social science wildlife agencies face when managing deer.
The North American Deer Summit is open to representatives of conservation organizations, wildlife management agency personnel, hunting industry leaders, and the outdoors media. Space at the annual meeting is limited and the event is less than a month away.
Scope of NDA Deer Summit Meeting
The NDA Summit is a thought leadership event that aims to unite deer conservation organizations, state and federal agencies, hunting industry leaders, and the outdoors media to work collaboratively on behalf of deer hunters and our hunting heritage. There will be a number of panel discussions focusing on the hot topics of deer management such as CWD and agencies working with deer hunters for common goals.
“We are excited to have many of our top deer experts in North America attending to discuss the most important issues impacting wild deer and hunting today, said NDA president and CEO, Nick Pinizzotto. We are confident that this will lead to positive outcomes for the country’s most iconic game animal.”
