Hunts for Heroes

The AES “Hunts for Heroes” mission is to provide hunting opportunities in Arizona for our returning military veterans who have been left with a disability while in the service of our Nation’s military.


Buck Springs Project

June 11-12, 2016 - Unit 5A - Many of the Riparian Meadows around Buck Springs on top of the rim are over run with small diameter trees in bad shape. In a cooperative venture the volunteers of the AES along with the USFS, AZGFD and other partner groups will be removing these trees, lopping the limbs and stacking them so they can be burned. In the riparian creek channels we will be working to restore the functionality of the channel so that water can be slowed and absorbed into the ground to restore the sponge meadows. In other areas we will be maintaining aspen enclosure fences and removing old barbed wire fences.

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.
