Almost every whitetail deer hunter is aware of quality deer management, thanks to organizations such as Whitetails Unlimited, Quality Deer Management Association, and other conservation groups. Mule deer, the whitetail of the West, don’t get nearly as much publicity, despite the fact that they’re the only North American big-game species declining in numbers. Utah, for example, has placed a $50 bounty on coyotes to reduce mule deer fawn mortality as one step. This YouTube video takes a comprehensive look at mule deer conservation with input from numerous wildlife agencies and noted authorities on the subject. Be prepared for breathtaking views of Western landscapes and giant bucks in natural habitat throughout the West. It’s easily a five-star conservation message.
