This is a special weekend for many of us. It’s an opportunity to say “thank you” to our mothers.
The idea of Mother’s Day dates back to the early 20th century. President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation in 1914 creating the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our mothers. They helped teach, guide and transform us into the type of men and women that we are today.
We have many mothers dedicated to ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage throughout the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. In this day and age where more women are getting out in the field, we recognize that current and future mothers are the fastest growing segment of hunters in North America. We salute them for their enthusiasm, passion and dedication.
So if you have plans to hit your favorite fishing hole, grill up some elk tenderloin on the barbecue or just spend time with mom and the rest of the family, we say thank you mothers for all you do.
