I love this time of year. Right before hunting season it is shopping season and I am working hard to get ready for the busy upcoming fall season. This year I was looking for a new jacket and I had decided that the Sitka Gear Fanatic Jacket was on my must have items of gear to add to my kit. I got online with Bass Pro Shops and saw the reminder that this month is Elk Country Conservation Month at Bass Pro Shops and I got a little bit excited.
I love doing business with companies that support the conservation organizations that I support on a regular basis. Bass Pro Shops is one of those companies that has worked with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation in support of the mission of land conservation and habitat protection and that makes me pretty happy. This year marks the eighth consecutive yea that Bass Pro Shops has supported RMEF with this program.
“It’s an honor for Bass Pro Shops to partner with an organization that recognizes the important role that hunters play in conserving this country’s wildlife,” said Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops. “Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has already enhanced more than 6.4 million acres of wildlife habitat and by hosting RMEF month at our stores across the country, our goal is to advance their important mission of ensuring the future of elk and other wildlife. We are very grateful to every member of the RMEF team for all they do.”
I have been a Life Member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation for close to 10 years and volunteered at many events with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation over the last 12 years. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is now more then 200,000 strong and has protected and enhanced over 6.4 million acres of habitat and securing public access to over 713,000 acres making this organization one in which I am proud to donate my money as well as my time.
While you are shopping at Bass Pro Shops online please take a minute and go here to donate $2.00 to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. If you are in one of the stores or decide to call 1-800 Bass Pro to make your order the friendly staff will ask you if you want to donate $2.00 to the RMEF. Please think about this great organization and the work they have done and make the donation. Every person that donates $2.00 will be entered for a chance to win gift cards or a YETI Tundra Cooler.
I am looking forward to my new jacket and reminded today that companies like Bass Pro Shops are out there in support of our passions for the Hunting Life!
