The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) is a conservation organization, founded in the United States in 1984 by four hunters from Troy, Montana (Bob Munson, Bill Munson, Dan Bull, and Charlie Decker). Its mission is to ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat, and our hunting heritage. In support of this mission the RMEF is committed to (1) Conserving, restoring, and enhancing natural habitats; (2) Promoting the sound management of wild, free-ranging elk, which may be hunted or otherwise enjoyed; (3) Fostering cooperation among federal, state, tribal, and private organizations and individuals in wildlife management and habitat conservation; and (4) Educating members and the public about habitat conservation, the value of hunting, hunting ethics, and wildlife management. Since 1984, the RMEF helped to conserve more than 6.6 million acres (26,700 km²) of habitat. RMEF also helped to restore long-absent elk populations, with herds being reestablished in Kentucky, North Carolina, Ontario, Tennessee, Missouri, Virginia, and Wisconsin. RMEF strives to be a strong voice for hunters in access, wildlife management, and conservation policy issues. Click here to learn more: Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
