Sportsmen and Women’s Meeting Santa Fe

Lions and Hikers and Bear…Oh My!

Striking out in the back country of New Mexico is always an adventure since you never know what you are going to run into. With any luck you’ll get to see some of the state’s most iconic big game animals including the ever elusive black bear or mountain lion. But do you know what to do should you encounter them on the trail? Daryl Ratajczak, former Chief of Wildlife and Forestry for the State of Tennessee and large carnivore specialist will talk about what you should do should you encounter one of these magnificent creatures at close range. If you are not sure what to do, all you have to do is A.S.K.

Andrew Black will also give a policy update regarding policy and planning impacting sportsmen at the state and federal levels.

The meeting will be held at Blue Corn Brewery on Cerrillos Road in Santa Fe.
