The Colorado Mule Deer Association has donated $9,000 to the Colorado Division of Wildlife to aid mule deer habitat improvement.

Eddie Vita, president of the Pagosa Springs chapter of the association presented the check to DOW Director Bruce McCloskey recently.

"The association appreciates the work done by the Colorado Division of Wildlife to improve mule deer herds throughout Colorado," Vita said.

In February, the association held its annual Governor's Tag auction in Grand Junction. The Division of Wildlife donates one mule deer license to the association that can be used by a hunter anywhere in the state. A hunter from Utah offered the winning bid of $45,000.

The association donated $9,000 of the proceeds to the DOW. The association uses the money for its own mule deer enhancement programs throughout the state.
