Leupold Named Official Optics Partner of RMEF ~ VIDEO

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is proud to announce Leupold as its official optics partner.

“The relentless pursuit of our mission matches Leupold’s relentless pursuit of being the number-one optics brand in the outdoor industry,” said Kyle Weaver, RMEF president and CEO. “Leupold strongly believes in and supports our conservation efforts to ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage.”

The RMEF-Leupold relationship dates back nearly three and a half decades to 1986. Since then, Leupold has steadily committed sponsorship, advertising and product toward RMEF and its mission.

“No optics company does more for sportsmen’s rights and conservation across the United States than Leupold, and we’re incredibly proud to support the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation,” said Bruce Pettet, president and chief executive officer of Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Their efforts have always been aligned with the goals of the Leupold team and our core consumer, and we are excited to be working hand-in-hand with RMEF for years to come.”

In addition to serving as a longtime producer of optics for RMEF’s extensive nationwide banquet system and an official RMEF licensee beginning in 2010, Leupold maintains many existing sponsorships:

  • Elk Camp & Mountain Festival
  • RMEF Films
  • Hunting Is Conservation campaign
  • Restoring Elk Country video series
  • RMEF World Elk Calling Championships
  • Bugle magazine advertiser
  • Donor of optics packages to top 10 RMEF chapters

“The bottom line is if there is an elk camp in the mountains, you’ll find hunters utilizing Leupold’s superior products. And we are thrilled that this American-made partner stands shoulder-to-shoulder with us as we go forward together,” added Weaver.

Cut the Leopold profit margin in HALF and we MIGHT be able to afford them. I LOVE them but just can’t afford them anymore… LEOPOLD, and others, have priced themselves out of the average American hunters and shooters price range and into the foreign optics open arms. The difference in quality can (honestly) be negligible/unnoticed in many cases, but the PRICE difference SHOUTS out to the buyer. Same goes for the Swarovski, Niteforce, and others we ALL know, optics.


I have some binos and a spotting scope marked “made in China” Please be truthful about where they are made. I have several scopes that are made in USA and are great.

Deplorable Bill

Leopold makes some really good gear, more than that, they make some of the best scopes that are made by man. The ONLY problem is they are WAY TOO EXPENSIVE!!! Until Leopold makes FFP, Christmas tree or H.U.D. type reticles with side focus in powers from 1 x4, 3×9, 4×16, 6 x24 for UNDER $350, I will have to buy from different brands with those features. I can and have bought 3 scopes with those features for the price of just 1 Leopold with like features. I am a vet. I love my country. I gave blood and body parts… Read more »
