The Mule Deer Foundation is the only conservation group in North America dedicated to restoring, improving and protecting mule deer and black-tailed deer and their habitat, with a focus on science and program efficiency.
    MDF is a strong voice for hunters in access, wildlife management and conservation policy issues.
    MDF acknowledges regulated hunting as a viable management component and is committed to recruitment and retention of youth into the shooting sports and conservation. At MDF, our goals are not just words for the Annual Report - we back 'em up with Money and Action on the ground!
