Deep Fork Outdoors teams up with Mule Deer Foundation to promote youth to outdoors

The Mule Deer Foundation (MDF) national conservation and hunting organization has teamed up with Deep Fork Outdoors (DFO) on an initiative in support of the MDF mission, according to MDF President & CEO Miles Moretti.

The Mule Deer Foundation is a national non-profit whose mission is to ensure the conservation of mule deer, black-tailed deer and their habitat.

Deep Fork Outdoors’s leadership team is made up of Jason Verbeck, Jerrod Gibbons and Brien Bowling of Omak, Washington, have a reputation for helping to successfully introduce youngsters to the outdoors.

“We are extremely happy about our opportunity to partner with the Mule Deer Foundation, and look forward to working with them on many exciting projects in the near future,” said Verbeck. “We are all residents of Washington and are really hoping to team up with companies from the Northwest as much as possible to help promote each other.”

Vebeck wants to get the word out to any youth that has the desire to learn about hunting and may otherwise never have the opportunity, as we’ve noticed that the majority of the kids we have helped out so far, tend to be from the west side of the state.”

DFO includes knowledgeable educators, seminar speakers, fitness advocates and independent producers of outdoor hunting and adventure DVDs and television programs. DFO includes guides and outfitters with access and equipment for safely taking young hunters and others on mentored hunts and other adventures each year.

MDF and DFO will collaborate on youth, and possibly adult, outdoor education efforts; explore potential for increased MDF visibility on a television show produced by DFO; and work together to serve MDF members and the MDF mission.
