Bumping this for a great cause.

   luv the elk , deer, duck, and turkey banquets.  they are for a good cause and sometimes you win something good like a gun.  they are spendy but what the heck I don't want my kids to have it all.  ps I am  not rich but I like to act like it.  mike w

I was a member for a year but never saw any articles on Blacktail in  the magazine and never re upped.  Would you mind a temporary non MDF member showing up?

AZcoues... Hope you don't mind me jumping in here. You don't need to be a member of the mdf to join these meetings. I think Blacktails are sort of a new focus of the foundation here in western WA. Id encourage you to attend and help get the new chapter off the ground.

The more the merrier! Blacktail is a new focus on the west side here and the regional director will be on hand to answer any questions everyone might have. Please show up.

Giving you guys a bump, hope you get a big turn out.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

I believe AZcoueshunter78 will post up the official date and time, but for planning purposes if I remember correctly, the next meeting will be Feb. 23 (Tuesday) at 6:30 again at the Roundtable in Gig Harbor.

We had enough guys to start a chapter and get it rolling! We will certainly welcome all who want to participate in any way. I heard the Issaquah group had a very large turnout so we have some work to do to match their numbers but I think we are up to it. The cause is the draw so come out and see what is going on and put a voice into what you would like to see. I brought my 14 year old son as he hunts with me so should certainly be involved in the conservation end as well. Looking forward to meeting more of you and seeing you at the meetings and in the woods.

Forgive my ignorance..  But is the Wash Muledeer Foundation just a Chapter of the Muledeer Foundation?  I'd prefer my donations help Wa Muledeer.  Either way its a great cause.

It is a chapter of the Mule Deer Federation but the funds will be used for Washington deer. The chapter will decide what to do with the funds raised. We are just getting started so it is yet to be determined what we will be doing with any funds we raise.

Unfortunately not at this time seeing as how we have not had any new interest on this side of the bridge other than the 3 others that were at previous meetings. If we can get some interested parties on the peninsula that want to attend the meetings we can definately get another meeting going and get the ball rolling.
