Hundreds of thousands of acres has been restored and hundreds of water catchments have been rebuilt and maintained.

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.

Hunters, please save that tracking collar

The department relies on valuable data that collars provide in making science-based decisions that determine the most effective wildlife management practices. The stored data can include an animal’s behaviors, movement patterns and frequency, individual and group dynamics, home-range size and more.

The technology is not inexpensive. A collar can range in cost up to several thousands of dollars. When factoring in additional costs of human resources, equipment and capture, the department is making a substantial investment in each collared animal. A portion of the funding comes from the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration (WSFR) program, a stalwart national funding source for state conservation and recreational opportunities.

It’s also helpful for hunters to report the date and location of their harvest when returning an undamaged collar to any department office statewide. For more information, call (602) 942-3000.
