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

A new year is a chance to do things better than you did in the last one, and to build upon the things that you started previously, or even start new initiatives. That’s exactly what we plan to do this year at NDA.

What Will Your 2017 Hunting Resolution Be?

What Will Your 2017 Hunting Resolution Be?

December 27, 2016 | by Nick Pinizzotto
I have found that the best time to focus on doing something better is when you already feel like you’re on top of your game. This will help you avoid complacency and save you from a gradual erosion of skill, possibly resulting in a bad outcome at the moment of truth.

I had to learn the hard way that no matter how good you think you are, you have very little control in the field, and ultimately, it takes a stroke of luck for things to fall into place.
