Dear Alabama QDMA Member: 

In response to recent actions taken by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to reduce the risk of chronic wasting disease (CWD) introduction into Alabama, some hunters and landowners have responded negatively citing a lack of facts or science. While some actions may be unpopular, it is QDMA’s professional opinion that the plan is solidly grounded in the best available science and represents the most viable approach to reduce the risk of CWD introduction. In brief, they are taking bold actions for the right reasons to protect Alabama’s precious whitetail resource and should be commended.  

We encourage all QDMA members to download the plan at the bottom of the landing page via this link:

We also encourage you to drop Commissioner Chris Blankenship a short note of thanks for taking decisive action while knowing full well the negative responses he would receive from a small but vocal minority. Let’s show him that QDMA members are just as concerned about the future of deer and deer hunting and are willing to place the health of our herds above all else. You can drop Chris an email at DCNR.Commissioner@dcnr.alabama.gov.
