Salt Lake City, UT: The Mule Deer Foundation (MDF) announced today that Nosler Inc. (Nosler) has signed on as a Gold Level supporter of the organization. This investment by Nosler showcases their commitment to wildlife conservation and the MDF mission, Ensuring the Conservation of Mule Deer, Black-Tailed Deer and their Habitat.
“Nosler has long been a proponent of wildlife conservation and MDF is proud to welcome them as a Gold Level supporter of our organization,” commented Brian Fienhold, MDF Chief Operating Officer. “We look forward to working with the team at Nosler to showcase their industry-leading line of bullets, ammunition and firearms, while also advancing our shared priorities relating to hunter advocacy, outreach and conservation initiatives.”
As the leader in mule deer habitat conservation, MDF has put millions of dollars toward on-the-ground habitat improvement and restoration to improve the health of western forests and rangelands. These projects support not only mule deer and black-tailed deer herds, but also significant numbers of associated wildlife species while improving water quality, reducing wildfire risk, and enhancing hunting and other recreational access. MDF also believes that promoting our nation’s hunting heritage is a key ingredient to furthering our conservation objectives. Outreach initiatives, such as our M.U.L.E.Y. Youth Program, are aimed at educating the public on hunting, wildlife management and overall respect and enjoyment of our natural resources.
“Our company, my family, and our employees have all grown up around mule deer and western hunting. Without our hunting heritage and healthy populations of wildlife we wouldn’t be able to pass those traditions on to future generations along with a rich and strong ecosystem,” said John Nosler, President of Nosler, Incorporated. “We recognize the Mule Deer Foundation’s tireless work for our public lands, our wildlife, and their commitment to sustainable management. For us, this wasn’t a choice, it was a necessity and we’re extremely proud to partner with such a respected organization.”
