RMEF Members "Step Up North"

Friends, food, fun, a whole lot of camaraderie and an eye focused on enhancing the future of elk, elk habitat and our hunting heritage highlighted a recent Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation gathering in Wisconsin. Hosted by RMEF Chairman of the Board Lee Swanson and wife Jacqui, the “Step Up North” event took place September 5-7 in Cable, located in the northernmost stretches of the state. The goal was to gather Life Members and current Habitat Partners from the region to further philanthropic and planned giving opportunities.

The turnout was a good one. Founders Bob Munson and Charlie Decker, and their wives, along with 40 participants from Wisconsin, Indiana and Missouri, took in the three-day event that included three early mornings of elk bugling, a visit to Copper Falls State Park, a tour of the Apostle Islands aboard a glass bottom boat and an RMEF project tour. After entertainment provided by “GQ,” a barbershop quartet, several attendees stepped up their Habitat Partner giving levels and several others become new members of the Trails Society making for a successful event and a weekend to remember.
