I WAS a member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation for 20 years. When they started they were about habitat restoration. There mission was to create a healthy environment that benefits all species. But slowly it changed to a fund raising mentality and suck up to the boys with the cash. Big donors need special treatment, opportunities to buy hard to draw tags (auction items). So they talked state agencies into giving them special tags and they split the proceeds. Then the big boys wanted less competition so they pushed for predator elimination. Can’t waste a trophy elk on a wolf you know. Aldo Leopold would be proud???
