  2. Are wives welcome ? My wife was impressed with the agenda.

  3. Qdma


    Absolutely...bring Jean with you. There will be some other wives there I am sure.

  4. Dave,
    Thanks for the reply. We'll be there.

  5. I can speak from personal experience that this food plot day is very informative. My friend, Tom James, is one of the most knowledgable people I've ever met on food plots, preparation, etc. He's a great guy who knows his stuff, and he's one hell of a deer hunter as well.

    Dawg, I salute you my friend........keep it real buddy.
  6. Is this open to the public or do you have to be a QDMA member? I am really getting into food plots and am trying to gather every piece of information I can. This sounds like a real neat event that I would like to participate in.
  7. Food Plot day


    This is open to the public. We would love to have you as a member, but if you don't want to join the organization you are still welcome to come and learn.

  8. What a great event. Besides learning much about food plots and trees among many other things, the food was outstanding and as much as you wanted. I gladly joined the Indiana Branch of the Quality Deer Management Association to partially pay back all that was acquired from the excellent speakers. Many thanks to the Stout's for their hospitality and use of their farm and facilities.
    Also a big "Thank You to DaWG" for making this great event known on this forum. Thanks again Dave.
  9. Field Day


    Thank you for the kind words about the day. You will quickly realize the magazine Quality Whitetails is alone worth the membership fee besides all of the other benefits.

    I thought Saturday's event was very nice. I thought the presenters were very informative.

    I look forward to next year's event and hope to see Jack and others there.

    Dave, sorry I missed the field day. Actually I was in Paoli utilizing one of Tom's 4' Furmintors. Impressive to say the least. He even reps for Mossyoak Biologic.....its one stop shopping!
