Black Tail Deer Summit

Leupold & Stevens, Inc., in partnership with the Mule Deer Foundation and Oregon Hunters Association, hosted the first-ever Black-Tailed Deer Summit at the company’s headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon on April 20-21.

The Mule Deer Foundation (MDF) assembled an extensive group of biologists, state fish and game department employees, key non-profit organizations, and regional Federal program leads to discuss the conservation of black-tailed deer, challenges to natural habitat, and the future opportunities that MDF can coordinate with partners on the western coast of the United States, Alaska, and Canada. The goal for the Summit included raising awareness between partners around black-tailed deer conservation efforts, and highlighting the unique challenges facing the species.

“When we say that no optics company does more for conservation than Leupold & Stevens, we’re serious,” said Bruce Pettet, president and CEO for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The black-tailed deer is an incredibly important part of the landscape right here at home in Oregon. It’s a game animal that our team members grew up hunting and appreciating. We were proud to host Joel and his team for the summit, and we’ll be right there on the front lines to help as MDF develops new projects to help conserve blacktails and their natural habitat.”
