Stop by and talk to biologists from many western states.
The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA) established the Mule Deer Working Group (MDWG) in 1997 to find solutions to common mule deer management problems and to optimize cooperative research and management. The MDWG is composed of representatives from all 23 western mule deer states and provinces. It was designed to (1) develop strategies to assist in management of declining mule deer populations, (2) improve communication among mule deer biologists, and (3) provide a forum to respond to information needs from agency administrations. Additionally, the group attempts to bridge the communication gap between agencies, universities, nongovernmental organizations, and citizens interested in mule deer. The group’s range-wide approach to conservation better equips mule deer biologists to face new challenges with a wider body of knowledge, helps natural resource administrators make science-based decisions, and provides up-to-date and accurate information to stakeholders. http://www.muledeerworkinggroup.com
