Missoula, MT -(Ammoland.com)- The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is excited to announce that Randy Newberg, one of the most popular public lands hunters in the United States, will join RMEF Team Elk as a featured member.
“Randy is the perfect addition to our Team Elk television team joining host Brandon Bates and featured member Kristy Titus,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice-president of Marketing. “He is a self-guided, do-it-yourself hunter who seeks and finds game on public lands like most of us try to do. Just as important, he has a deep passion for the RMEF, our conservation mission, hunting and wildlife.”
“For a person who has spent his TV life promoting public land hunting, a lot of it being elk hunting, being asked to bring that message to Team Elk is very exciting. My show has always had a strong conservation and access slant,” said Newberg. “No organization is doing more for public land conservation and access than the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, so hosting some hunts for Team Elk is a great opportunity to further increase the volume as to how important those issues are for hunting.”
Newberg has been involved with RMEF for more than two decades. His television work began with On Your Own Adventures in 2009. Currently, he is the host of Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg. In both instances Newberg was an avid self-guided public lands hunter. While filming, he hunts all Western states for all species; researching and planning his hunts, then heading to the hills on his own.
“As RMEF so succinctly states, ‘Hunting is Conservation.' The public lands of America are a perfect example of that statement. The more people who learn of these public land opportunities from our episodes, the more hunters we have and the more conservation that takes place,” added Newberg.
Newberg serves as a volunteer for many conservation organizations. He is a volunteer for local hunting and fishing groups. He is involved in national and regional policy efforts to improve and protect public land access, specifically access important to hunters. He also began service on the RMEF Board of Directors in January of 2013.
“Thanks to RMEF, there are now more elk in the hills than at any time in my life. It happened because of the effort and commitment of visionaries, amazing volunteers, generous donors and members who share the vision that the next generation of hunters should have the same opportunities, or better opportunities, than we had,” said Newberg.
Randy and his wife, Kim, live in Bozeman, Mont. Randy is a certified public accountant by vocation and a hunter and conservation volunteer by passion. Sportsman Channel named him the 2012 Sportsman of the Year. He continues to share his public land hunting message on his current show, Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg.
RMEF Team Elk airs Thursdays at 10 a.m., Saturdays at 6 p.m. and Sundays at 6:30 p.m. on Outdoor Channel (all times ET.)
