For the past 41 years, nothing stopped the largest, longest-running annual gathering of deer researchers in the nation, the Southeast Deer Study Group (SEDSG) meeting, until COVID-19. But QDMA and NDA are stepping up to ensure this important event stays alive in 2021 by hosting it as a virtual conference.
Traditionally, SEDSG is hosted by a different state wildlife agency each year in rotation throughout the 17 member states. When it appeared the February 2021 meeting would be postponed for a full year, QDMA and NDA volunteered to fill in for the state wildlife agency that was next in line by hosting a virtual conference. Knowing the importance of this meeting to deer research, scientific discussion and deer conservation, and wanting to avoid a lost year, we committed to help in any way we could. Planning is ongoing, but you can find the important dates and information to know at qdma.com/sedsg.
