Earlier that same week, RMEF completed a conservation project seven years in the making that now permanently protects and provides public access to more than 4,000 acres of prime elk habitat in Washington.
Just prior to that, RMEF announced that so far in 2014 it allocated more than $3.5 million for habitat stewardship and hunting heritage projects.In Virginia, elk continue to disperse from the third and final phase conducted last month of a restoration project, funded in part by RMEF dollars and powered by volunteers, that returned elk to their native range. Volunteers also continue to crack the whip by organizing and hosting chapter banquets and other fundraising events around the country to raise money for RMEF's mission of ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage.

Earlier that morning, Bob Munson encouraged staffers at a small department meeting to "Keep the pedal to the metal!"
We certainly will Bob!
