Rex held the position of Secretary until 2010 when he was elected Chairman midterm after Chairman Bret Frye became the WY SFW State President. He became a Life Member in 2012. Rex joined the WY SFW because they were different from other sportsmen associations. We have a paid lobbyist helping get our mission accomplished. 100% of the money we raise in Wyoming stays in Wyoming. Unlike other organizations the Chapters raising money get to keep 30% of the money they raise to spend in their communities on projects important to them.
