In Arizona, Phoenix area BHA members escaped the heat this past weekend (6/29) for a meeting at Bass Pro Shops in Mesa, AZ. In recognition of a growing need for a voice that better reflects Arizona Sportsmen’s passion for traditional backcountry hunting and fishing, a handful of passionate BHA members have embarked on a grassroots effort to form and build an Arizona BHA chapter. As attendees put it “the discussions of this inaugural meeting have gone a long way towards establishing a BHA chapter in Arizona.” Members in attendance (pictured left to right) included: Rod Mondt, Thomas Hulen, Dan Patterson, Robert Martin, Jim Littlejohn, Michael Quinlan, and Ross McCollum.
A second meeting will be held in the Tucson area in July (Date TBD). If you are interested in getting involved with BHA in Arizona, become an official BHA member today, or if you’re already a member, contact us here.
