A Quality Deer Management Cooperative (QDM Cooperative) is a voluntary association of landowners and hunters collaborating to improve deer population characteristics and habitat in a specific area. By working together with surrounding neighbors, landowners can enjoy the benefits of managing large acreages.
Milliken Forestry Company has partnered with QDMA to serve as QDM Cooperative coordinators in South Carolina.
With our Neighbors Program, MFC has developed an easy way for interested hunting clubs and landowners to join and participate in QDM Cooperatives in our state. Using our online system, you can register your interest. If your property is located in or near an existing cooperative, MFC will contact you about joining the cooperative. If your property is in a new area, MFC will work with you to identify and contact adjacent landowners in order to form a new cooperative.
Once we form a new cooperative, MFC takes care of all coordination and data management to keep the cooperative active and provide you with valuable information to take your QDM program to the next level. By joining a cooperative, you will have the opportunity to attend dinners and educational seminars with your neighbors and receive valuable population data for your specific area.

If you would like to have your piece of owned or leased land considered for membership in a cooperative, register on our site with interest in QDM Cooperatives. After you register, you will be able to add your property to an interactive map.
