Western Hunting and Conservation Expo

In one night, the MDF and SFW auction grossed over one million three hundred thousand dollars in revenue. Most of this money will benefit conservation programs.

It was quite a night. After the Antelope Island mule deer tag sold for $310,000 at the Friday night auction, the Antelope Island California Bighorn Sheep tag sold for $70,000. That’s right, sheep tags and mule deer tags are both in demand.

Here are a few views of the event.

  1. I would have gone except for Lapierre. The NRA represents gun manufacturers and off-road vehicles, not sound science-based game mgmt.

    • Off road vehicles? game management? The NRA lobbies for the right of individuals to own firearms.
