Sportsman’s Warehouse: Elk Country Retailer
MISSOULA, Mont.—Hunters can find Sportsman’s Warehouse stores in 17 states. Nearly all are elk states. In fact, more than 90 percent of all elk—and an even larger percentage of elk hunting—occur in these states. So it’s no surprise that this storefront and online retailer is also a major partner of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
“Sportsman’s Warehouse is ensuring the future of elk and elk habitat through its support for RMEF initiatives,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO. “We’re grateful for our long and growing partnership with this hunting-goods retailer that offers tremendous first-hand knowledge of the needs of our members as well as elk country itself.”
Sportsman’s Warehouse in 2012 is celebrating the success of new retail locations as well as an online store launched just last year at http://www.sportsmanswarehouse.com/.
The growing sporting goods retail chain is stepping up to the plate and investing more resources to support RMEF’s conservation initiatives and our hunting heritage, including:
- Advertising and branding in RMEF’s member magazine “Bugle,” including being the new sponsor of “Bugle’s” popular Elk Hunting Q&A column.
- Support for local RMEF chapters in their fundraising and on-the-ground activities through donations and other support.
- Sponsorship for the RMEF Elk Country Legacy membership and mission initiative.
- Sponsorship of RMEF’s National Event Invitation System.
“Sportsman’s Warehouse congratulates RMEF for surpassing the 6 million acre mark in habitat conserved for elk,” said Karen Seaman, chief marketing officer for Sportsman’s Warehouse. “Our industry depends on availability and access to wildlife habitat. RMEF and all their dedicated volunteers are critical to protecting our sports and lifestyles.”
She added, “We’re excited to step up our support for RMEF in 2012. And our anticipated growth with three new stores this year in Las Vegas, Redding, Calif., and Roanoke, Va., will allow us to continue to grow our support into the future.”
