Conservation First USA is a non-profit organization launched by volunteer sportsmen and women that raises funds to improve and restore wildlife habitat in the Southwest.

Since 2006, tags for ten Arizona big game species, including Pronghorn Antelope, Black Bear, Buffalo, Coues Whitetail Deer, Desert Bighorn Sheep, Elk, Javelina, Mountain Lion, Mule Deer and Turkey have been granted to the Arizona Big Game Super Raffle, now doing business as Conservation First USA, by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission through their Special Big Game Tag program.

“In a civilized and cultivated country wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsmen. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wild life, are ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping the larger and more valuable wild creatures from total extermination.”
