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.
The Humane Society of the United States and their Arizona Shell Organization, Arizonans for Wildlife, Admit Major Defeat by a Coalition of Arizona Wildlife Conservationists
March 31, 2018
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Phoenix- The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), a scandal laden political organization, waited until a slow news holiday weekend to announce their stunning failure to qualify an antiscience based wildlife management initiative for the upcoming 2018 ballot.
In an excuse laden message to their small group of supporters, Kitty Block, Acting President & CEO of HSUS said, “This difficult decision is the result of a perfect storm of local obstacles and emerging national issues…” What the acting CEO did not explain is how the HSUS is racked with forced departure of their senior leadership for flagrant, sexual harassment misconduct and the approaching decertification of the organization by the Better Business Bureau for their fundraising tactics.
The message sent by the acting CEO is also the first true acknowledgement that the Arizonans for Wildlife is just a front organization to avoid public discussion of the HSUS business model which annually spends less than 1% of their donations to assist local humane shelters. Yet HSUS masquerades as the local Humane Society chapter, routinely misleading donors into believing they assist displaced dogs and cats in our communities.
