For those who love mule deer, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks' new Mule Deer Adaptive Harvest Management (AHM) web pages will be an interesting, convenient way to tap into years of research and observation of this species, including Montana's innovative approach to managing mule deer populations.

Surfers will find updates on the latest statewide mule deer surveys, questions and answers on mule deer management, habitat types and the social behavior of mule deer, making this information interesting to both hunters and folks interested in learning more about this familiar, native species.The full text of the AHM Management Plan is also available as a downloadable text file.

To find FWP's Mule Deer AHM pages go to the FWP home page at fwp.state.mt.us and click on Hunting and then select Mule Deer Adaptive Harvest Management.Web visitors may also want to try out the new interactive Hunt Planner also available on this page.

Soon to come to the FWP web site will be an interactive GPS map of AHM mule deer census and trend survey areas as they correspond to the hunting districts in Montana.Click on a specific hunting district with this AHM feature "turned on" to learn more about the area's mule deer habitat and deer population trends.
