The Arizona Deer Association is a non-profit, volunteer-run
organization dedicated to preserving deer and deer habitat in the state of
Arizona. The members of the ADA are a diverse group and include hunters,
lawyers, teachers, construction workers, and people from all walks of life
and all spectrums of society. Members are the heart of the organization and
member participation is the key that helped the organization grow from its
inception at a backyard barbeque to one of the largest conservation
organizations in the state. Currently, we have about 500 members who are
involved in all kinds of projects such as habitat improvements, youth camps,
and our annual banquet.
Habitat improvement projects are usually conducted over
a weekend, and can consist of building or repairing deer waters, clearing
scrub or other damaging vegetation, or even reseeding some areas.
Our Youth Camps are set up to provide young deer
hunters with the information they need to be successful in the field. At
the camps, junior hunters can find food and hospitality, a scout to assist
them with finding game, or help with field dressing their trophy. Our Youth
Camps are posted on the website, and as the time draws nearer, we will
provide detailed directions for reaching the camps.
Our fundraising banquet is the highlight of our year,
but it takes an incredible number of people to pull off an event of this
magnitude. In 2009, our banquet netted over $218,000 for wildlife
conservation in Arizona. This includes the special commissioners tags
that we auctioned. It
takes a wealth of volunteers to organize the banquet, solicit these
donations, set up the day of the banquet, and run these various events.
