Mapping the Future of Mule Deer

Bothell, WA – BaseMap, in partnership with Mule Deer Foundation, are offering 10% off of BaseMap Pro. In return, BaseMap will be donating 10% back to Mule Deer Foundation and their conservation efforts.

“BaseMap was created to give outdoorsmen the proper tools to plan, navigate, and share their hunting and fishing adventures. Conservation plays a big role in making those adventures a success and we are proud to partner with the Mule Deer Foundation and their mission to improve and protect mule deer habitat.”

While Mule Deer populations remain relatively sustainable in much of the west, according to the National Wildlife Federation, specific geographical areas of concern are still being addressed. A 2007 article by Art Isberg points to many of the same issues being dealt with today,

“It is vital to understand at the outset that no animal can survive or prosper if its habitat is either altered or eliminated. Regardless of health, hunting pressure, herd numbers and control of predators, habitat is key to everything else that follows, the linchpin to species survival and the most neglected part of the mule deer story.”
