John Crenshaw

President

John Crenshaw earned a degree in journalism at New Mexico Highlands University, and went on to work as a reporter, then associate editor of New Mexico Magazine before joining the Department of Game and Fish in 1974. He dedicated the next 23-plus years to the state’s wildlife and sportsmen, learning about game and fisheries management. Now retired, he got into the politics of wildlife management in 2011 to fight bills that would have eliminated the State Game Commission and kicked the door open to partisan political hiring in the game department. He subsequently joined the NMWF board and has actively lobbied the Legislature on behalf of wildlife and sportsmen ever since.
