We will be holding a meeting the evening of January 26th at 7pm to discuss forming a new chapter of the Mule Deer Foundation centered in the Bellevue/Redmond/Issaquah/Snoqualmie Valley area. The location is still pending but it will be somewhere along the I-90 corridor, probably in Issaqhah. If anyone is interested in attending, please send me a PM so I can keep a list going. We hope to have a location ironed out in the next week or so. Looking forward to seeing what we can do to put together a new chapter to help our deer, both blacktail and mule deer.
Now is our opportunity to be a part of making the changes needed to fix what we all sit around and complain about on the internet!!
See you there.

Who's coming out??

In the process of securing an establishment in Issaquah with good burgers and cold beverages.
Worst case scenario, we jaw jack about mule deer and enjoy a cold pop.

I am not a member but would like to hear what this is all about. I will attend if it is OK for non members. If I could suggest a spot to meet, the Sunset Alehouse has good food and beer/ pop

Maybe/probably. I'm still waiting to hear from the Gaslamp in Issaquah to let me know if we can use their back room.
If not there, I've got a couple other options in the same general area I will explore.

We met in their back room a couple years ago and I brought my raffle deer rack, Mray brought his mule deer and CrazyElk brought his monster elk rack.   Was hilarious to see all the patrons gawk at the antlers on tables in the back room.

Maybe I should bring last years moose Euro?   

At the very least, can probably show you guys some pictures you haven't seen before...... ;)

I think I am in, it sound like by your description of blacktails and mule deer centered around the Issaquah area you are actually talking about what we all know to be "coastal blacktail" right?

Either way I am in.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Either way I am in.

The plan is to focus on whatever the consensus is among the members. We don't need to be committed to one or the other either. Where ever our help is needed, we can focus it.
Thanks Rick!
