We are transitioning from one of my favorite seasons to another—from hunting season to Thanksgiving and then the Christmas holiday season.
Thanksgiving is a time of reflection, gratitude and joy. We all have so many things for which to be thankful.
I am particularly grateful for my wife, my boys, other family members and the bonds we cherish together. Growing up, Thanksgiving was as a time we spent with family at my grandparents’ ranch, our last days of hunting for the year and the family Thanksgiving dinner; the memory is as fresh in my mind today as it was over 50 years ago. I am also grateful for all of our friends and other associates who enrich our lives.
Filled with pride and heartfelt gratitude, we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with each of you as volunteers and members of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. We number over 220,000 strong and while we don’t know all of you by name or face, the results of your continued support and dedication to our shared conservation mission are clearly evident. Just recently, RMEF rolled past the one million acre mark in lifetime public access projects and very soon we will surpass seven million acres in wildlife habitat permanently protected or enhanced.
Together, we are making a profound impact for good on elk and other wildlife populations and elk country from coast to coast. Thank you!
