Carl Erquiaga is a native Nevadan with a passion for hunting, fishing, wildlife, and spending time in the outdoors. Born and raised on the family farm, Erquiaga says his first memory of participating in practical wildlife management was protecting pheasant nests in the hay fields as a young boy.
Erquiaga enjoys upland bird hunting and the occasional fishing trip, but his real love is big-game hunting. In the fall, he can be found in the arid mountains and deserts of Nevada in pursuit of mule deer, pronghorns, or bighorn sheep—a lifelong devotion. He has served for nearly three decades on the board of directors for the Fallon Chapter of Nevada Bighorns Unlimited, where he assists in trapping, transporting, and releasing wild sheep. He has also helped construct water developments all over Nevada.
Erquiaga is excited to play an even more active role in the wildlife and habitat conservation arena with the TRCP. Having served as an elected county commissioner, Erquiaga brings a unique perspective and deep understanding of local government priorities in relation to state and federal agencies, public lands management, and the on-the-ground economic benefits of hunting and fishing in Nevada communities. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife Management from the University of Nevada-Reno and lives in Fallon, Nevada, with his wife, Lisa. They have three grown children who were raised with the same love of the outdoors.
