It's sure nice to be getting some notices about events like these coming back live and in person again.

Montana's Dark Horn Chapter of the Mule Deer Foundation will be holding their 8th annual banquet on Saturday, March 5, at Missoula's Hilton Garden Inn. And they have got a great evening of activities planned.

Doors open at 5:00 p.m. In addition to a wonderful meal, this exciting event features all kinds of premium outdoor gear and firearms, along with silent and live auctions featuring hunting trips to New Zealand, Africa and Argentina.

From the "Spike" (one youth meal) to the "Bachelor Buck" (one adult meal) to the "Four Point Package" for two to entire tables for 8, there are multiple ticket options for you. You can see all the ticket options and place your orders on the Dark Horn Chapter banquet website page here.

How would like to win tickets?

We have not one, but two Four Point Packages to give away! Each package includes dinner for two, along with a Mule Deer Foundation annual membership and magazine subscription. These are $120.00 values. Entry deadline is 3:00 p.m. March 2. Register here!

From their mission statement, "The Mule Deer Foundation is the only conservation group in North America dedicated to restoring, improving and protecting mule deer and their habitat. Chapters around the country, including those in Montana, are committed to sustaining deer populations, and support regulated hunting as a viable component to wildlife management."

LOOK: Stunning animal photos from around the world

From grazing Tibetan antelope to migrating monarch butterflies, these 50 photos of wildlife around the world capture the staggering grace of the animal kingdom. The forthcoming gallery runs sequentially from air to land to water, and focuses on birds, land mammals, aquatic life, and insects as they work in pairs or groups, or sometimes all on their own.
