Venue changed from International Sportsmen’s Expo
Phoenix, AZ -(AmmoLand.com)- The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s annual sale of wildlife assets will take place April 2-3 at the 2016 Outdoor Expo at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility, a change in venue from the International Sportsmen’s Expo (ISE) set for March 10-13 at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
The Wildlife Assets Program enables the public to legally purchase antlers, head mounts, hides and other wildlife parts that have been seized during law enforcement investigations, obtained from animals killed in vehicle collisions or acquired through donations.
All assets will be sold through a silent auction. Proceeds will be used to support the department’s law enforcement program through the purchase of equipment (evidence collection kits, digital cameras, audio recorders, metal detectors, decoys and night vision equipment) and specialized training (interview and interrogation classes, wildlife forensic classes, crime scene investigation training) that assist officers in more effectively performing their duties.
