Elk NetworkLeupold to Raise Funds for RMEF Public Access Projects

General | February 5, 2019

Leupold & Stevens, Inc. announced it will partner with MTN OPS to raise funds for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s land-access projects and other conservation efforts at the Pacific Northwest Sportsmen’s Show, held at the Portland Expo Center on Feb. 6-10, 2019.

During the show, the Leupold booth will offer guests the chance to “Hang Out for Conservation.” Consumers will have the chance to compete and win prizes in a “hang bar” challenge – assorted prizes, courtesy of Leupold, MTN OPS and RMEF, will be awarded in different tiers, depending on how long consumers are able to hang onto the bar.

All proceeds raised from the competition will be donated directly to RMEF to support land-access projects and other conservation efforts.

“No optics company does more for sportsmen’s rights and conservation across the United States than Leupold & Stevens, and the efforts of RMEF are very much aligned with the goals of the Leupold team and our core consumer,” said Bruce Pettet, President and CEO for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “We’re proud to be able to partner with an organization dedicated to conserving wildlife habitat and opening greater land access for outdoorsmen and women nationwide.”

“Leupold is a long-standing core partner of RMEF and continues to lead the industry with their commitment to conservation efforts in the Pacific Northwest and across the United States,” said Kyle Weaver, president and chief executive officer for RMEF. “The contributions we receive from this event will be used to directly elevate the delivery of our core mission and promote the hunting heritage and land access.”
