MISSOULA, Montana -BowTech’s new top-of-the-line compound bow, the “Admiral,” headlines a bowhunter’s wish list of prizes to be won at select 2009 fundraising events for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

The fundraisers support the Elk Foundation’s conservation work. The organization now has topped 5.4 million acres of habitat protected or enhanced for elk and other wildlife.

“Our banquets, auctions, raffles and games always offer great prizes like guns, art, outfitted hunts, trips, jewelry and hunting gear. More and more, we’re also offering top archery equipment,” said Steve Decker, director of field programs for RMEF.

He added, “For 2009 we’re featuring BowTech’s hot new ‘Admiral’ as part of a flagship progressive raffle. Hundreds of these bows will be won, and everyone who wins will be entered into a drawing for an awesome Montana elk hunt for two.”

The “Admiral” is a high-tech, center-pivot bow with 320 fps speed and 65-80 percent letoff. An RMEF logo is laser-etched into the wood grip. The elk hunt, provided by Dome Mountain Outfitters near Yellowstone, is an archery hunt for two hunters.

Other bowhunting gear to be featured nationally in 2009 includes the Hunter’s Specialties’ Scent-A-Way Scent Elimination System and Carlton’s Calls Elk Calling Kit, a decoy set from Montana Decoy and an archery package from TruGlo containing a Brite-Site Xtreme 5-Pin bowsite, Tru-Block stabilizer, Centra Peep and Tru-Quiver.

RMEF committees often add additional archery gear to local fundraiser lineups.
