Happy Birthday to Jim Yoakum.

We were honored by having renowned pronghorn biologist Jim Yoakum celebrate his 83rd birthday with the group. Jim first came to the Sheldon in 1954 and has been a strong voice for protecting pronghorns ever since.
'When Jim was asked by Dave Rice for an article for the RGJ in 2005, what he likes to do to relax, his answer came quickly.“I like to study pronghorn,” he said.'
