Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Banquet

Recommended Posts

Nate McVey

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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
