AZGFD Hunting And Angling Heritage Workgroup
October 1, 2018
Hello, and I hope everyone is doing fantastic. The Become a Hunting Mentor Trivia and Pint Night went excellent. We had about 35 attendees and 18 HAHWG reps at this first-time event and the room was buzzing with interest, engagement and buy in. Ryan will be sending out more details, but I wanted to give you a quick update. Thank you all for your input, support and contributions.
JOB OPPORTUNITIES (LOTS)
I've gotten a number of notices of job openings in Conservation and R3 that I've been meaning to share, there's bound to be a fit for someone. A few of these close this week, so dig in if you are interested. I suspect HAHWG
members are some of the most knowledgeable and qualified in the nation for these roles.
