40,000 Acres of Public Land Opened in Arizona
The Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) applauds the collaborative efforts that led to completing a twenty-plus year project in Arizona that will open public access for hunting, hiking, equestrian, and other outdoor recreational uses in an area that has historically been locked off to the public. This Aravaipa Canyon Recreation Access project was the BLM's highest ranked FY 2020 acquisition priority for the use of Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) in the country.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to explore relisting the gray wolf
Groups still unhappy with state management continue to petition the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to relist wolves. These latest petitions are no surprise. The petitioners are fundraising to get wolves relisted, fundraising to stop attempts to delist, and in between, fundraising to stop management actions once wolf populations reach a point of needing more aggressive methods to control their numbers. Regardless, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has an obligation to address petitions and has concluded these new petitions to put wolves back under federal control are deserving of complete scrutiny.
Alumni Spotlight : Clay Brewer
Clay Brewer has been chasing bighorn sheep since he was 11 years old.
“My dad spent a lot of time with me and my brothers outdoors,” said Brewer. “We lived in Utah, and I can remember spotting a sheep for the first time and asking my dad if I could chase him. I spent that entire day following in its path. I’ve been chasing bighorn sheep ever since.”
