Below are the words of James Lucero, RMEF’s New Mexico state chair:
Dale started with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF) back in 1989 with the Hunter Education program. Since that time, he started the Bowhunter Education portion of Hunter Education. After that Dale moved to the fisheries department and then the Landowner-Sportsmen program. He also supervised the start-up programs of Outfitter-Guide registration and Wildlife Depredation. In 2001, he started up the Habitat Stamp program—an effort to think on a landscape level in terms of the needs of wildlife, giving sportsmen ownership and maintaining past investments.
Dale will still be dabbling in work projects from time to time and will keep the New Mexico volunteers informed when the next work project will take place.
On May 29, 2014, representatives from RMEF, BLM and NWTF made a presentation to Dale in honor of his hard work and commitment to wildlife. There were about 20 people that attended this very informal presentation. The BLM-Socorro Field Office dedicated a wildlife drinker in Dale's honor. It is named the Dale Hall Wildlife Water Trick Tank.
Thank you Dale!
