On Saturday, January 23rd at the Wild Sheep Foundation convention affectionately known as the Sheep Show™, Wild Sheep Foundation presented Mrs. Sue Entsminger with the 2016 Artemis Outstanding Woman Conservationist of the Year Award.

There are many fine and prestigious awards presented throughout our industry that recognize and celebrate the hunting accomplishments of an individual.  The Artemis Award was created to honor an outstanding woman conservationist. Although the criteria for this award requires that a nominee be a hunter this award is not about the hunting feats or trophies taken rather it honors a woman who has given back, a woman who has and continues to make a significant conservation impact so that future generations will have the same opportunities we enjoy today and our hunting heritage will endure.

On Wednesday, the Colorado Parks & Wildlife Commission (CPW) voted 7-4 against the reintroduction of both Mexican wolves and gray wolves into the state despite public support for the animals. This decision follows a lengthy debate that created heated discussions between ranchers, hunters, farmers, wildlife advocates, and others.

During the CPW’s meeting, wolf advocates demonstrated outside of the office, waving signs in support of the reintroduction of the endangered Mexican gray wolves into Colorado. Supporters say that they will fight the CPWC’s decision and believe that wolves belong in the state.
“There is no reason that wolves have to be considered the demon of livestock, it’s just not factual,” Delia Malone of the Sierra Club Rocky Mountain Chapter told CBS Denver.
