Have never been a member. They do have some good information but the problem I have in general is that it basically caters to people who own lots of land. Yes the concept and group are two different things but if you look at their underwriters it is mostly big logging outfits machinery dealers etc that would appeal to the guy who has too much time and money on his hands. You really don't get much for your 30 bucks other than six copies of a magazine. Deer & Deer is a much better value IMO.
Not to argue with you but you stated that you have never been a member but yet in the same post you say they cater to large landowners and you don't get much for your $30?
As a member I can say that they do include the smaller landowner and offer some great information for them.
Thats a common misconception regarding QDMA. If a person reads their corner stones and follows their work it becomes quite clear that they are a great organization that is doing alot for deer and the land they inhibit.
Just my 2 cents
