RMEF Ready to Pull the Trigger on Season 3 of Team Elk

MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s award-winning television show, RMEF Team Elk, returns to celebrate a third season of conservation and hunting on Sunday, July 7, at 3 p.m. (ET) on Outdoor Channel.

“Team Elk is much more than just a TV show,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “It features the best landscapes in elk country, the wildlife that lives there, demonstrates how we solidify our connection to the land around us, and drives home the fact that Hunting is Conservation.”

The first episode features racing legend Johnny Unser Jr. and long-time RMEF volunteer Mike Baugh as they chase big bulls in the fast paced, rut-filled Big Sky country of Montana.

Each week, new episodes of RMEF Team Elk will air every Thursday at 10 a.m. (ET), Saturday at 6 p.m. (ET) and Sunday at 3 p.m. (ET).

Season Three’s weekly episode highlights include how three women of the outdoors successfully “Shoot Like a Girl,” a young hunter who caps his first ever elk hunt in a BIG way, and more memorable up-close encounters with elk and other wildlife than ever before.

“We are excited to bring a new look and format to our third season,” added Decker. “Our production staff works hard to make sure the viewer not only enjoys the show but comes away with a better understanding of the relationship between elk, hunters and conservationists, and the land around us.”
