Welcome North Texas Elk Enthusiasts!
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is committed to preserving the habitat and expanding the range of North America's most magnificent creatures. Through the fund raising activities of local chapters, RMEF has undertaken conservation efforts on more than six million acres of prime habitat for winter feeding, spring calving grounds, summer retreats and seasonal migration routes. These efforts are focused on the needs of elk, but provide substantial benefits to all mountain wildlife. RMEF has also worked closely with state fish and game departments to re-introduce elk into parts of the country that have not had natural, free ranging elk populations in more than a hundred years.“Highlights from 2011 Include:” Habitat enhancement on 111,894 acres (exceeding thier goal by 11,894 acres!), protected 40,952 acres (exceeding their goal by 7,592 acres!), passed the six million acre lifetime mark for habitat enhanced or protected finishing 2011 with a combined total of 6,123,622 acres, restored a wild elk herd to Missouri, fueled elk restoration efforts in Virginia and Maryland,, continued legal and legislative efforts to manage and control gray wolves, reached more than 700,000 students and others with positive messages on hunting, shooting, and conservation, recorded a fourth straight year of record membership (now standing at 184,135, and received the highest rating, 4 Stars, from Charity Navigator.
The North Texas Chapter has traditionally ranked in the upper echelon of hundreds of chapters across North America for its annual fund raising banquet. Each year our banquet draws more than 350 attendees representing a cross section of sportsmen and conservationists from around the area. Last year these dedicated people contributed close to $120,000.00 by participating in the banquet games, raffles, and auctions, and took home quality merchandise, firearms, investment grade art, and opportunities to participate in high quality hunts and trips.
