“I’m extremely excited to partner with the Mule Deer Foundation. I’ve met a lot of great people in this organization and whole-heartedly support the mission they’re on. Me and my team all love mule deer, and mule deer hunting, and want to see them thrive across the landscape. For decades I’ve been giving back because I support the Mule Deer Foundation and their objectives, and I’m really excited about partnering with them for the future!”
