After the almost total extinction of bighorn sheep in the state (once our most numerous big game animal), NBU has been instrumental in the reintroduction of all three species of bighorn into more than 60 mountain ranges throughout Nevada.
If you haven’t noticed yet it’s that time of year again, banquet and convention season. There are many great organizations holding conventions and banquets, sometimes deciding which event to attend and how much to contribute monetarily can be overwhelming. I remind myself each year that it’s for a good cause, furthermore looking back on what NBU has been able to accomplish over the last 38 years or so, I know that it is true.
As I walk a convention floor or sit at a banquet, I’m always amazed by the hustle and bustle and the tremendous amount of effort it takes to pull off these types of events every year all in the name of protecting our hunting heritage and the wild creatures that we pursuit. The NBU banquet is one such event and once again it is looming on the horizon. Putting on an event like the NBU banquet surely doesn’t happen on its own. Each year NBU is blessed with an outpouring of volunteer help and I can tell you first hand that we could not do this without our volunteers and supporters by our side every step of the way. This year is no exception and is shaping up to be one of the best yet. Not to give the whole program away… But be on the lookout for some amazing items, like the return of a truck in the live auction, along with two desert bighorn tags, and many other new exciting auction items. Our local taxidermists will once again duke it out in the taxidermy competition by bringing the best of the best for all the audience to see and vote on.
NBU looks forward to another great year of protecting and enhancing Nevada’s wildlife, once more the support we receive from you makes this all possible. Project season is underway we will be sending emails and posting dates on social media, hopefully I will get to see you at one of those.
Here’s to a great 2018 banquet & outstanding project season!
