Arizona Elk Society Celebrating its 10th Anniversary March 19, 2011

Published on January 19, 2011 under Events

The Arizona Elk Society, Phoenix, Arizona is hard at work gearing up for the 10th Annual Banquet March 19, 2011.

The money raised at the Banquet funds wildlife habitat  restoration and improvements across the State of Arizona for the benefit of Elk and other wildlife.

This year the Arizona Elk Society is proud to be auctioning two (2) of the Special Commissioners Big Game Tags.  These include the Commissioners Elk Tag and Commissioners Buffalo Tag.  The season for these tags runs from Aug 15th, 2010 to Aug. 14th, 2011.  For information on open hunting areas please see the AZGFD website.  Buying one of these tags is a great opportunity to help out Arizona’s Wildlife Management and possibly harvest a great animal.  All the money form the sale of the Commissioners Big Game tags goes to projects on the ground to benefit the species the tag is for.

Along with the Commissioner Tags there are some great Big Game Hunts, Loads of Firearms, Trips and auction items rolling in. 

If you are interested in purchasing tickets for the Banquet, donating to the AES, looking for information on the Commissioner Tags or needing info about the Banquet and other events please visit our website at  If you are interested in a Corporate Table at the Banquet please contact Cookie Nicoson at 928-699-9036.
