RMEF Neutral on Ballot Measure 2 in N.D.
MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is not taking an official position on Ballot Measure 2 in North Dakota, but is asking voters to weigh valid points on both sides of the issue and to make their decision carefully on Nov. 2.
The measure will decide the future of game farms and high-fence hunting in the state.
Recent media reports and rumors have cited RMEF on both sides of the question, but neither is correct, according to David Allen, RMEF president and CEO.
“Ballot Measure 2 is an issue for the voters and sportsmen of North Dakota to decide, and we will not take a position either supporting or opposing the measure,” he said.
