Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is heading to the sunny Southwest to hold its 2018 Elk Camp March 15-18 in Chandler, Arizona.

“There is nothing like the energy and enthusiasm generated by our members and volunteers at Elk Camp,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO. “We are excited to get together in Arizona to celebrate our conservation mission and milestones.”

As of July 1, 2017, RMEF has conserved or enhanced more than 7.14 million acres of elk habitat and opened or improved access to 1.15 million acres for hunters, anglers, hikers and others to enjoy. RMEF recently eliminated alllong-term debt for the first time in its 33-year history and is also riding eight consecutive years of record membership growth.

The Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass will host 2018 Elk Camp. As in past gatherings, RMEF will celebrate its accomplishments during Volunteer Fun Night as well as two other nightly events including auctions. Elk Camp will also offer various “Taste of Arizona” events including a desert jeep tour, an excursion to historic downtown Scottsdale and Major League Baseball spring training games (schedules/locations yet to be announced by MLB teams). In addition, attendees may play nearby championship golf courses and take part in other on-site activities such as boating, horseback riding or sitting down at Arizona’s only five-star restaurant.

RMEF will announce its world class entertainment performers and other information in the near future.

Full registration is now open and available here.

Video: Hunting Elk in Arizona in “What Had Changed”


The Mountain Project has dropped a new video with hunters taking on bull elk in Arizona.

From The Mountain Project:

“Hunting is really a series of decisions. And those decisions determine the outcome of the hunt. Deciding when to shoot and when not to shoot is perhaps the most difficult of them all. And is something Cody Voermans doesn’t take lightly, especially when the only shot is a long range shot. It’s an ethical dilemma we all face at one time or another, but having the right tools and the right practice, makes the decision a little bit easier.”

This is why Arizona is a go-to for big game hunters!

From High Point Outfitters:

“Come along with first time archery hunter Ben Nielsen and HPO on an Arizona elk hunt. Watch over the shoulder video of bull after bull getting called into archery range. Feel the relief of a first time archery elk hunter finally putting his tag on a well-deserved archery bull elk. Give us a call to enjoy a hunt just like Ben’s!”
