Pronghorn Restoration Benefit Dinner and Dance to support restoration efforts 

The Pronghorn Restoration Benefit Dinner and Dance is Saturday, January 29, at the Granada Theatre in Alpine. In addition to a steak dinner, the program includes a silent auction, a brief presentation on pronghorn in west Texas, and an outline of the restoration plan. 

The Benefit is being spearheaded by the Trans-Pecos Pronghorn Working Group -- a group of local ranchers, conservationists, scientists, and biologists concerned with the recent demise of pronghorn in the region. One of the recommendations of the Pronghorn Working Group involves a restoration and monitoring program for pronghorn. Using a surplus of pronghorn located in the Panhandle of Texas, biologists plan to capture and relocate 400 pronghorn to the Trans-Pecos. Working with local landowners, wildlife biologists will then monitor the relocated pronghorn to evaluate their success, survival, and fawning rates.

Tickets are $50 each and must be purchased in advance.  Tickets can be bought at the Range Animal Science Center, the Alpine Chamber of Commerce, True Value, Johnson’s Feed and Western Wear, and Big Bend Saddlery.  For information about the event, tickets, or donating to this effort, please call the Borderlands Research Institute at (432) 837-8488. .

Boone and Crockett Club picks TWA Member Wallace as its president

Ben WallaceTexas Wildlife Association Member Ben B. Wallace of Corpus Christi has been elected to serve as president of the Boone and Crockett Club.

Wallace, a TWA Family Member, lawyer, businessman and avid hunter, becomes the Club’s 29th president, following the tenure of Lowell E. Baier, according to an article in Lone Star Outdoor News.

Wallace is also active in Pope and Young Club, Lone Star Bow Hunter’s Association, American Hunting Club, International Game and Fish Association, National Rifle Association and Ducks Unlimited.

Boone and Crockett Club officials say it is the oldest hunter-conservation group in the United States. Theodore Roosevelt and like-minded sportsmen formed the club in 1887. They were alarmed by rapidly decreasing populations of North American big game animals.
