  • What is the purpose of AES?

    "The mission of the Arizona Elk Society is to raise funds to benefit elk and other wildlife through habitat conservation and restoration and to preserve our hunting heritage for present and future generations".

    In support of our mission we are committed to:

    • Conserving and enhancing wildlife habitat in Arizona.
    • Protecting and promoting our hunting heritage.
    • Promoting sound wildlife management and habitat through partnering with government agencies and other organizations.
    • Implementing special programs for youth education regarding conservation, hunting and outdoor activities.
    • Informing the general public about issues concerning wildlife conservation, as well as scientific and biological wildlife and habitat management.
  • Why was Walt Nicoson chosen as the name of the scholarship program?

    Walt was an avid hunter and wildlife lover. Walt donated his time and energy to the Arizona Elk Society. He was a Founding Life member and a Habitat Partner. He volunteered for all the AES events but helping the youth of Arizona experience the joy of hunting and the outdoors was Walt’s passion. Instilling respect, ethics and responsibility for wildlife and wildlife habitat was foremost to Walt. The AES feels that there is no better person to name our scholarship after than Walt Nicoson. We hope that Walt’s example of dedication and volunteerism to the AES and wildlife will be instilled in our scholarship recipients.
