Letter from the President

August 9, 2016 | by National Deer Alliance

Thank you for visiting my blog on the National Deer Alliance (NDA) website. We strive to provide you with the latest news happening in the deer world, while also updating you on the work of NDA. This is where I will cover issues from a more personal perspective. 

I would say that not a day goes by that I’m not thinking about deer, or doing something related to hunting, be it photographing, filming or writing about them. Growing up in Pennsylvania, I was surrounded by hunting and abundant deer herds. I developed an indescribable passion for deer at a very young age, and I have a particular fondness for pursuing mature whitetail and mule deer bucks with a bow all across the country.

I have developed very strong feelings about wild deer, their habitat, and the tradition of hunting them, and I am certain that will come through as you read my posts here. I invite you to provide your own thoughts and feedback, as well. I look forward to working with you to help NDA serve as the guardian of wild deer conservation, and our hunting heritage.

Nick Pinizzotto,
President & CEO

It wasn’t all that long ago that I would be in the woods every opportunity that my schedule allowed. It didn’t matter if it was 80 degrees with clear skies and sun, or 40 degrees with rain and 30 mile-per-hour winds.

While some still want to pretend CWD doesn’t exist, or that the seriousness of the issue is overblown, Bluffland Whitetails Association is playing the hand it has been dealt, and doing its part to ensure a bright future for deer and hunting.

Access, Access, Access: A Deer Hunter’s Mantra

While easy access, such as state-owned property may be overcrowded or unproductive, multiple forms of other access exist for those willing to put in a little extra effort. Local knowledge and some time spent in front of a computer screen can go a long way.

The Non-Hunter Elevator Pitch and Why it Matters

Hunting wild game as a source of nutrient-rich and delicious protein is as old as humanity itself. However, for much of the American public, meat has been reduced to a substance not unlike a jar of peanut butter.

While hunters typically don’t agree on much, such as scent control, hunting the moon phases or the best way to prepare a backstrap, most seem to agree that CWD management is important according to the results of our recent survey.
