Venue changed from International Sportsmen’s Expo
Phoenix, AZ -(AmmoLand.com)- The Arizona Game and Fish Department will not be selling wildlife assets at this weekend’s International Sportsmen’s Expo at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
Instead, all antlers, head mounts, hides and other wildlife parts seized during law enforcement investigations, obtained from animals killed in vehicle collisions, or acquired through donations will be sold through a silent auction April 2-3 at the department’s 2016 Outdoor Expo at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility.
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.
The Ben Avery Shooting Facility is located at 4044 W. Black Canyon Blvd., in north Phoenix. For more information, visit www.azgfd.gov/assets, or call (623) 236-7303.

That wouldnt be fair now would it? This is for us who live in Arizona. Not someone with way too much money looking to outbid people online.
If you are lucky, taking that one prize trophy in a lifetime is awesome. Most people are not that lucky. I would like if this “auction” would be held ONLINE to give those of us not that “lucky” the ability to purchase that gorgeous rack we would mount. The one that a lifetime of hunting may never provide.
