RMEF Team Elk Expands to Year-Round TV Schedule
MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s award-winning television show is going bigger and better than ever. Season Four of RMEF Team Elk, presented by Cabela’s, will now be broadcast all year long on the Outdoor Channel.
“This is a bold endeavor for us,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “Expanding production from 26 weeks to 52 weeks a year gives RMEF a greater opportunity for outreach and education by featuring more elk hunting, elk country and telling the story that Hunting is Conservation.”
Season Four premieres the week of December 30. It features RMEF President/CEO David Allen and Life Member Bill McBeath as they hunt Nevada and focus on land protection for the state’s wildlife populations.
Episodes of RMEF Team Elk will air every Tuesday at 12:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Thursday at 10:30 p.m., and Friday at 11 p.m. (all times ET) on Outdoor Channel.
Highlights of Season Four include memorable hunts chasing big bulls in Utah, Montana, Idaho, Kentucky, New Mexico and on other beautiful landscapes across elk country. Among featured Team Elk members are country music artists Easton Corbin and Josh Thompson, Chris Sprangers of Cabela’s, former Indy race car driver Johnny Unser, Eberlestock founder Glen Eberle, PSE founder Pete Shepley, Kristy Titus, host Brandon Bates, and four teenage girls on their first deer hunt.
RMEF Team Elk represents a nationwide RMEF membership of nearly 200,000. The series delivers RMEF’s mission of ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage with a theme of Hunting is Conservation to 34 million households per week on the Outdoor Channel.
“Our goal is to help viewers gain a better appreciation and understanding of the link between elk, hunters, the land and conservation,” added Decker.
Presented by Cabela’s, RMEF Team Elk is not possible without the support of our partners, including Browning, Buck Knives, Danner, Yeti Coolers, Eberlestock, PSE Archery, Zeiss, Flextone Game Calls, Archer Xtreme, New Holland, Nosler, Hunting GPS Maps, DeWalt, Yamaha, Sitka, Budweiser, Peak and Montana Canvas.
