    QDMA Forum to be Discontinued - QDMA Forums



    There is a wealth of knowledge over in the archives there and its sad that the it won't be available as a reference. Corporate never cared about the forum over there but it was the best food plot reference on the web.


    So if you need any info better look soon.

    That's a shame. I feel like the forum is more informative than their magazine will ever be.


    Any all time great threads that I should consider printing off?

    Excellent idea - If anyone has links to some articles they found helpful, please post.

    I used to have a few bookmarked before my computer crashed.

    Seems like an opportunity for a crafty forum creator to capitalize on their decision.

    Whoa....that is sad. Honestly though I bet they in a small way don't like all the knowledge sharing occurring on the forums....threatens their publications in a small way.

    Wow, that seems like a horrible decision. I really have had no real use for the QDMA site, but the forums were great.

    That's terrible news. That place is full of knowledgeable people that I've learned so much from.

    Try, look for anything by Lickcreek. Man had forgotten more about food plotting than most will ever know.

    Was always a slow forum since it's inception. I imagine it will pick up now.

    There's no easy way of saving or printing forum threads is there?

    Boy people over there are NOT happy about this. They will definitely lose members, but I doubt enough to truly make an impact. I'm curious as to how many forum members were actual paying QDMA members

    Just clicking on random pages and reading through... The amount of information in that thread is mind boggling.
