Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Dec. 21,201 1 3C Big game fundraising to support wildlife conservation The California Department dinners/conventions during $130,000 for conservation in of Fish and Game (DFG) is pleased to annourme the awarding of annual fundrais- ing hunt tag opportunities for big game in 2012. In cooperation with several hunting-oriented conserva- tion organizations, DFG will offer 13 big game fundraising license tags for eight mule or black-tailed deer, two desert bighorn sheep, one Grizzl:/ Island rule elk, one multiple zone elk and one pronghorn antelope. Following a competitive bidding process, DFG propos- es to award agreements for the auction or sale of the 13 tags fo the following organi- zations: Wild Sheep Founda- tion (National and California Chapter), Safari Club Inter- national (Orange County and San Francisco Bay Area chapters), The Mule Deer Foundation (National, Cen- tral Coast, Chico, Shasta- Lassen and Redding chap- ters) and the California Deer Association (North Valley, Salinas Valley, Gridley and Mount Saint Helena chap- ters). These conservation organi- zations submitted a bid pack- age describing their intent to auction off a particular tag at their annual fundraising late winter/early spring. Auction of these fags typi- cally generates more than $300,000 per year for DFG to put back into conservation and management actions that include surveys, habitat improvement, applied re- search and translocation of animals to historical ranges where they may currently be absent. Such translocation ef- forts in California have been a great success for tule elk, desert bighorn sheep and pronghorn antelope. "California's hunting orga- nizations continue to demon- strate they are at the fore- front in support of wildlife conservation through their support for these auction tags and for the purchase of licenses and tags by their members, as well as all hunters," said DFG,Director Charlton H. Bonham. In addition to the auction tags, DFG is.expanding the random drawing program initiated earlier this year through the automated li- cense data system (ALDS), when chances for a deer tag and an elk tag opportunity were offered to the public for $5.40 each. The drawings for those two opportunities alone generated more than 2011, "In our continued support of hunting and quest to in- crease hunting and fishing opportunity in California, I'm pleased that our hunters can purchase multiple chances through our ALDS application process for a spe- cial hunt tag next year," said Bonham. "And I am particu- larly excited that this year we will include a once-in-a-lifetime desert bighorn sheep tag as well as a coveted northeast- ern California pronghorn an- telope tag." As an added bonus for the hunter who draws the sheep tag from that random draw- ing, a private entity, San Gorgonio Wilderness Outfit- ters, has offered free guide services for the hunt in the Kelso Peak/Old Dad Moun- , tains zone to the recipient. "This is a wonderful offer and commitment by the San Gorgonio folks and demon- strates the great support of one another within the hunt- ing community," said Bon- ham. Availability of all fundrais- ing tags remains contingent upon the approval of annual. hunting regulations by the Fish and Game Commission. L00rgest yet Bob Baitinger of Quincy displays an eight-by-seven non-typical bull elk he shot from 200 yards at a private ranch in Crawford, Colo,, earlier this season. This was Baitinger's fifth time hunting there, and this was his largest elk ever. It scored a 411 on the Boone and Crockett scale. The bleached antler and web on the left side is very unusual. Baitinger is having the head mounted to hang in his home with many of his other hunting trophies.
