Understanding Mule Deer and Winter Feeding Fact Sheet

Supplemental feeding of deer and elk – especially in winter – is widespread across the West, including far-West Texas and New Mexico. In this report, the Mule Deer Foundation concludes that, “At best, feeding has a limited nutritional benefit often negated by undesirable, even catastrophic, behavioral and biological effects.”

    • Hi Nelson,

      The report – taken from the MDF (Mule Deer Foundation) 2018 Convention Issue, is posted just below my headline (a quote taken from the ‘Conclusions’ paragraph) and should be readable if you click the little box in the upper right of the window. Sometimes we have issues with our site, particularly between Microsoft & Mac software. We recently addressed this and thought we had it fixed.

      Thanks for calling this to my attention: Please tell us what you do and do not see to help us make this visible to readers.

      Best regards,
