The mule deer population stretches from northern Canada to southern Texas. This regal animal can grow to 40" in length which makes them one of the most treasured big game animals in the country. Hunters from across the western U.S. are devoting time and energy to ensure the conservation of mule deer so they can prosper in their natural habitat.
"The lack of habitat is a significant issue in the decline of this majestic animal," said Tim Abell, Host of Mule Deer Documentary. "Housing developments are shrinking the areas where the deer not only used to live, but also retreat for 'winter range'. Thankfully, organizations such as Mule Deer Foundation, WAFWA (Western Association of Fish & Wildlife) and others have stepped forward to help build highway underpasses and high fences to help the flow and containment of deer in urban areas. We as sportsmen have a lot of work to accomplish; however, I believe we're on the right track."
This compelling episode also features Tim Abell on a guided mule deer hunt in the Golden, Colorado area. This spot and stalk mule deer hunt gives viewers a first- hand glimpse of responsible hunting in the majestic, snow-covered backcountry. Abell and his guide hike and glass for a mature mule deer before they spot a pack in the near distance.
The entertainment and educating continues as audiences will experience the generosity of famous country music singer, Kristy Lee Cook and her gracious donation to the Mule Deer Foundation.
