There will be a buzz this Year in Vegas on Super Bowl Weekend.  Besides the Super Bowl itself, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has combined its annual “Elk Camp” Exhibition with the International Sportmens Expo.  This will be the biggest public show in the Western U.S., and, Elk Mountain Gear will be there, proudly representing our Products in booth #746!

The 3 day event will take place a the the Las Vegas Convention Center and Rivera Hotel, on February 2-4th.  Following on the heels of a highly successful 2011 Elk Camp in Reno, the RMEF decided to take the Show to the next level.  Over 500 exhibitors will be showing their products and services at the Show, and they are expecting a record number of attendees.

“We’re really looking forward to Las Vegas” explained RMEF President and CEO David Allen, “because it’s a new market for us, with plenty of local sportsmen and out-of-town visitors to enjoy our Show.  Las Vegas is also a fun, World-class destination to help draw RMEF members, elk hunters, and conservationists from across the U.S.”

He added “Las Vegas is home to the most important three days of the year for elk and elk country.  The support we generate there will be crucial for our conservation initiatives in 2012″.

  • Auctions, raffles, and games, to include the chance to win the hunt of your dreams!
