Bass Pro Shops is showing its support in a new way this June for the Quality Deer
Management Association and its members. During QDMA month, shoppers at participating Bass Pro Shops stores are invited to donate their change to the leader in white-tailed deer management by rounding up their purchase total to the nearest dollar.
“Bass Pro Shops has been a long-time supporter of QDMA’s conservation and management efforts,” said QDMA CEO Brian Murphy. “The round-up program during the entire month of June is a great way for its customers to make a positive contribution to the future of deer hunting and management.”
Throughout June, Bass Pro Shops stores across the U.S. will offer customers an opportunity to donate their spare change in support of QDMA’s efforts to ensure the future of white-tailed deer, wildlife habitat and our hunting heritage. In addition to QDMA receiving 100 percent of the money customers donate at the cash register, Bass Pro Shops will make a contribution at the end of the promotion. Bass Pro Shops also provides promotional support to QDMA through multiple advertising channels.
QDMA is the fastest growing and most influential whitetail conservation organization in North America and works to help deer hunters improve local deer populations and get more fun out of their hunting experiences. QDMA also works at the local, state and national levels to protect the whitetail resource, which is the foundation of the North American hunting tradition.

Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris has made giving back to conservation a hallmark of the company since he first began selling fishing tackle in the back of his dad’s liquor store in 1972. Over the course of several decades, Morris has dedicated himself to inspiring people, especially youth and families, to love, enjoy and conserve the great outdoors. One way that Bass Pro Shops works on behalf of conservation is by supporting the efforts of nonprofit conservation organizations that share a desire to tackle key conservation initiatives such as fish and wildlife habitat improvements, conservation and outdoor skills education, improving the quality of our lakes, rivers and springs, and conservation advocacy.
