The 2013 Rogue Chapter RMEF banquet was filled with elk and elk country lovers all teaming up to raise critical funds for permanent land protection, habitat stewardship, elk restoration and promotion of our hunting heritage.
Good food, camaraderie, games, live and silent auction all make for an action packed evening. This was my second year teaming up with Jeff Heil to offer a youth turkey hunt to the live auction. Matt Dunbar of Dunbar taxidermy donated a turkey fan mount, Hocking Ranch donated the land access for the turkey hunt, Jeff Heil volunteered his time as our guide and I donated my time to film the entire hunt. Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls donated turkey calls for the youngster to get out and learn how to call turkeys.
This year, 9 year old Spencer was the proud winner of the youth turkey hunt and this is going to be very special as it is Spencer's first ever hunt!
RMEF members, donors and volunteers are all contributing to conservation and are proving everyday that hunters are really the leaders in conservation. Every member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is a member of Team Elk and together we are fueling the conservation efforts of RMEF.
Remember to support local businesses that help to continue the legacy.
