Get Your Free Deer Management Plan Template
Having a written document like a management plan is crucial to improving the quality of your deer hunting property. Management plans allow you to record current property conditions and objectively evaluate them compared to your overall goals. This is important because as your efforts progress on the property over time, it allows you to look back at past conditions, see improvements, and make changes in your management strategies based on what has and has not worked in the past.
The National Deer Association’s (NDA) Quality Deer Management Plan template is available as a digital file that you can fill out. The first step is to customize the cover with a favorite photo, then include basic property information and objectives. Next, collect some helpful maps and insert them to accompany your plan. Then visit the property and evaluate all of its habitat features and record them as well. You are now ready to fill in the rest of the template using harvest and survey records. Be sure to utilize the numerous helpful weblinks we’ve included in each section and in the Additional Resources section at the end. When complete this document will paint a much clearer picture of where you have been and where you want to go. Remember, this Quality Deer Management Plan is only pertinent for the next 3-5 years, and may require amendments within that time frame. Good luck!
