One of the first people to take the idea of organized conservation and apply it to Desert Sheep was Eddie Pribyl of the Fraternity of the Desert Bighorn. Eddie started this faternity with 8 others in 1964 and it is the world's oldest wild sheep conservation group. This group specializes in creating sustainable habitat for Nevadas Desert Bighorn Sheep and 67 other species. Almost everyone who's had the opportunity to hunt Desert Bighorn in Nevada owes some thanks to Eddie Pribyl and the FDB.
All hunters are wildlife conservationists. It would be almost impossible to speak with an avid big game hunter who isn't concerned about the wildlife populations, youngling health or habitat strength. The crew was very grateful to be able to sit down with a guy like Eddie and hear about his stories and experiences building up the hunting habitats we enjoy today.
The FDB is a non-profit organization with no paid staff members. If you are looking to get involved visit fraternityofthedesertbighorn.com or @fraternityofthedesertbighorn on Instagram!
