The Mule Deer Foundation Chapters of Montana would like to end 2013 with a big "thank you" to our sponsors, banquet attendees, members and our partner agencies and organizations that care for our public lands and wildlife. Celebrating our 25th year in 2013, MDF chapters in Montana had a record-breaking year in fund raising. With 12 chapters in Montana this year, MDF chapters were able to donate funds to the following projects in Montana:
Big Hole Watershed Project, White Pine Ridge noxious weeds project, Mount Haggin Bitterbrush project, Upper Big Hole Restoration, Madison County Weed Project, Madison Aspen Project, Tongue River Ranch Riparian Fencing project, Lazy J Ranch Easement, Poacher Cam (Region 3), Robotic Mule Deer Decoy (Region 3 & 5), 4H Shooting Program, and $22,000 to other Montana youth shooting programs.
The Mule Deer Foundation is a nonprofit wildlife habitat conservation organization dedicated to ensuring the future of mule deer, blacktail deer and their habitats. With 44,000 members and more than 140 chapters nationwide, MDF has raised funds for management-related research, habitat acquisitions, conservation easements and habitat improvement projects, and introduced our youth to the outdoors and shooting sports since its inception in 1988.
The Mule Deer Foundation Chapters of Montana look forward to 2014 and riding on the momentum we generated in 2013. We are planning to work with Montana Fish & Wildlife and the U.S. Forest Service to add access easements to our funding goals in 2014. Again, none of this would be possible without the support of concerned hunters and outdoors enthusiasts.
