MISSOULA, Mont. --(Ammoland.com)- The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is pleased to team up with outdoorsman and filmmaker Jason Matzinger in the production of #PROJECTELK, a feature film highlighting rare elk footage and a hunter’s quest to fill his tag in the rugged backcountry.

“Jason is as talented with a camera on his shoulder as he is with his bow or rifle,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “The goal of #PROJECTELK is to educate hunters and non-hunters alike about the level of commitment we have for the hunt and the animals we pursue.”

“There isn’t one organization across this world that I would feel more proud to have behind me than the RMEF,” said Matzinger. “With their involvement, it’s going to push me that much harder to do that much better. It’s going to be a film like nobody’s seen.”

Born and raised in Bozeman, Montana, Matzinger spent much of his youth in the woods and mountains. He is a life-long hunter, a cinematographer, a former professional guide and a conservationist. He is also the host of the television show Into High Country.

#PROJECTELK is the story of one elk hunter’s journey to take the bull elk of his dreams. Throughout the changing of the seasons you will witness everything from the cruelty of winter’s grip to the majesty of the fall rut.

“That passion never ever shuts off and I want to portray that through documenting elk throughout one season and the struggles they go through to survive, along with the backstory of the hunter and how it shadows that time of year,” said Matzinger. “I try to bring on conservation messages including how to be a good sportsman. It’s all about respect to the animal.”

“Jason has rare insight, first-hand knowledge and video evidence of elk behavior and biology many of us have not seen before. He also understands and demonstrates how Hunting is Conservation,” added Decker.

Filming and editing will wrap following the 2014 hunting season with the film’s debut expected in early 2015.
