Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Banquet

12 posts in this topic

As the president of the Duluth chapter of the RMEF I wanted to throw out some information to anyone who may be interested in attending our banquet on August 25 at Spirit Mountain. We will have a silent auction, general raffles and a live auction with numerous guns, hotel stays, art work and much more.

The history of the RMEF in Minnesota dates back to 1989 when the Elk Foundation purchased a vital 80-acre parcel that is now part of the Grygla WMA and since then has impacted more than 9000 acres of elk habitat. Most recently the foundation partnered with The Nature Conservancy to purchase 863 acres of habitat in Kittson County. In all the foundation has helped leverage funding for more than $750,000 in projects in Minnesota's elk country.

These dollars not only impact Minnesota's growing elk herd but also whitetail, grouse, bear and many other game animals. By protecting and purchasing this land, the RMEF keeps vital habitat open to the public and out of the private sector.

If anyone would like more information on the RMEF banquet or the RMEF in general, please contact me at nateatgrandsuperiordotcom.

Sounds like a great deal and a conservation minded organization.

Happy Birthday by the way Scott! I have some raffle tickets that you need not be present to win, one for a Remington 700 SPS .300 Win. Mag and one for a Matthews Outback Bow. Let me know what you think.

Tom, hopefully we'll see you tonight, if not I'll figure out some way to get a hold of you.

Thanks

$20 a piece, but only 100 will be sold for each. Then the winners, nation wide, are thrown into a drawing for 2 different hunts out west.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
