What is the Rack Pack?
The Rack Pack is a grassroots, in-person program with a supplemental youth-led, multimedia approach intended to create and enrich future hunters and leaders in conservation.
Quality deer management (QDM) is about balancing the deer herd with the habitat, balancing the adult sex ratio, and balancing the age structure for bucks and does. Sometimes, this is easier said than done, especially when most deer managers own or manage acreages far smaller than deer home ranges. This is where QDM Cooperatives come into play. A QDM Cooperative is a group of landowners and hunters working together to improve the quality of the deer herd, habitat and hunting experiences on their collective acreage.
Labor Day has passed, and the unofficial end of summer means archery season is nearly upon us. We’ve even had our first frost in north-central Pennsylvania. Dawn arrived on September 6 with a heavy sheet of ice on my truck’s windshield. That was exactly 102 days since our last frost on May 27. One hundred two days between frosts is great for keeping insect pests and hemorrhagic disease to a minimum, but it certainly makes for a short growing season from an agricultural perspective.
