The banquet is a fundraiser for the foundation that is dedicated to preserving the mule deer and black tail deer habitat

I love hunting just like any normal person, but sometimes we have to make sure we take animals when the time is right. Mule deer and black-tail deer, for example, were in overabundance in certain areas until about 1983, when a harsh winter took about half of them. Quote from Mule Deer Foundation:

Emmett B observed that mule deer populations had not rebounded from this die-off. Many factors contributed to mule deer not coming back; loss of habitat, predators, poaching, highways crossing through the middle of transitional ranges, and subdivisions being built on winter ranges. State wildlife agencies were busy trying to grow more elk and dealing with endangered species issues.

I love this foundation and everything that it stands for. How you can help. Please join me by helping them by attending the banquet.
