MISSOULA, Mont. --(Ammoland.com)- —Elk Camp 2013 marks the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s national convention.

Highlighting the 29th annual gathering is an announcement regarding RMEF’s ability to carry out its mission in bigger and better ways than ever before.

“There are a number of different reasons why 2012 was the best year yet in RMEF history, and I can’t wait to spill the beans about the details of the biggest one,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO.

There are many RMEF highlights of the last year including a fourth consecutive year of record membership with a Dec. 31 tally of 196,079 members, reaching a lifetime mark of 6,287,980 acres of enhanced or protected habitat, and restoring a wild elk herd in Virginia.

“Elk Camp provides a great opportunity to gather together as RMEF members and volunteers to celebrate significant accomplishments of the past year,” added Allen. “And I promise to deliver an announcement that will be a real game changer for our ability to carry out more meaningful and wide-ranging conservation and hunting heritage projects than ever before.”

Elk Camp 2013 and the International Sportsmen’s Exposition will take place Feb. 28-March 3 2013 at the Mirage and the Las Vegas Convention Center. Featured events include the 25th Annual World Elk Calling Championships, more than 600 exhibit hall booths marketing or spotlighting hunting, fishing, wildlife, outdoor apparel, firearms and accessories, exciting auctions and raffles to raise funds for conservation, musical performances by the Charlie Daniels Band, Ronnie Dunn, Daryle Singletary and Josh Thompson, and special recognition of volunteers and contributors for their efforts to enhance the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage.

Elk Camp is an opportunity for RMEF and outdoorsmen and women to celebrate elk, elk country and conservation. More than 2,000 people attended the national convention in 2011 while approximately 12,000 walked the floor of the exposition in the convention center.
