Elk NetworkOur Hunting Future – How #HuntingIsConservation in Wisconsin

Conservation | March 28, 2018

BB guns, bows, arrows, firearm safety and the outdoors.

Those activities, in part, brought scores of kids and their parents to the 8th Annual Youth Outdoor Fest in Lacrosse, Wisconsin.

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation provided funding and volunteer manpower to host booths and generate enthusiasm.

Hunting generated more than $800 Million for conservation in 2017.

The more hunters stock up on ammunition, rifles and archery equipment, the more money that accumulates via excise taxes for conservation.

That’s why it’s imperative that more young people like those at Youth Outdoor Fest learn about shooting, hunting and other skills because as the future hunters they will fund future conservation work.

Funded and supported by hunter-based organizations like RMEF, hunter recruitment events like this one highlight how Hunting Is Conservation.
