Check Out Our Two Newest Chapters
In the winter of 2017, the Northern Arizona Peaks Chapter was formed to serve communities in northern Arizona. Since inception, the Northern Arizona has been one of the focal points of our habitat funding, volunteer projects, and the Water for Wildlife program.
Residents in the Pinetop area have formed the first-ever chapter of the Arizona Elk Society. Known as the Arizona Elk Society White Mountain Chapter, volunteers feel they can significantly contribute to improved populations of elk and other wildlife.
HUNTS FOR HEROES
Arizona Elk Society started a new program "Hunts for Heroes" to help disabled veterans here in Arizona heal through hunting. Our first hunt is in the books. Kevin Widner was our first hunter and harvested a great antelope in Northern AZ. Program Director Dave Holbrook set up the hunt with our great friends at High Point Outfitters from Flagstaff. John from HPO and his guides did a great job.
Thank You to all that had a hand in this hunt and
Thank You to Kevin for his service to the United States.
With regard to the current petitions now being circulated, aimed at outlawing the legal hunting of mountain lions & bobcats by Arizona citizens. They are being circulated by an anti-hunting group calling themselves Arizonans for Wildlife. In reality this is the work of the money focused Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
Their goal with this action is to get Arizona voters to reject a century of sound scientific wildlife management from our Arizona Game & Fish Department biologists. The HSUS would prefer to manage wildlife with the ballot box. Their campaign will be based on emotion and will contain very little science.
