New Mexico Elk Habitat,
Research Get Boost from RMEF Grants

RMEFMISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation awarded $117,016 in grants to benefit wildlife habitat, hunting heritage programs and scientific research in New Mexico.

The grants will directly benefit 4,228 acres in Catron, De Baca, Grant, Lincoln, Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Sandoval and Socorro Counties. There is also one project of statewide benefit.

“An increase in wildfire over the past several decades shows a need for forest restoration in New Mexico,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO. “This funding, in part, will assist with a study to determine how elk react to such projects in an effort to help biologists improve feed for elk and other wildlife.”

What a challenge to get grandpa close enough to that cow elk. 83 years old, successful and happy as can be! Closing on the first season of the year, always remember to be thankful for everything you have, health, happiness and the ability to hunt!
