Some of the projects we are supporting or have recently supported include a Hunter Safety Camp near Carlsbad. This was the first of its kind and was very successful with 27 people taking the weekend class. We are again supporting YHEC out of Eddie Co. These kids are our future hunters and conservationists. We have also helped fund a Hunters for the Hungry Program which will be statewide.
Even more recently we voted on and approved funding for a Youth Fishing Derby which is sponsored by the NMFG. This will take place on June 4 at the Spring River Pond. The pond will be stocked with catfish. Please help get the word out on this, and also bring your kids and enjoy the day. There will be many prizes given away and other activities as well. We are also helping to support a youth 3d Archery Shoot in Ft. Stanton.
For the second year in a row we will be supporting a Wounded Warrior Hunt. As it stands right now, we have secured two and possibly three antelope tags to be used by Warriors. This is truly a great project to support.
