The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) is a conservation and pro-hunting organization, founded in the United States in 1984 by four hunters from Troy, Montana (Bob Munson, Bill Munson, Dan Bull and Charlie Decker). Its mission is to ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and American hunting heritage. In support of this mission the RMEF is committed to: Conserving, restoring, and enhancing natural habitats; Promoting the sound management of wild, free-ranging elk, which may be hunted or otherwise enjoyed; Fostering cooperation among federal, state, tribal, and private organizations and individuals in wildlife management and habitat conservation; and Educating members and the public about habitat conservation, the value of hunting, hunting ethics, and wildlife management. Since 1984, the RMEF helped to conserve more than 6.7 million acres (26,700 km²) of habitat. RMEF also helped to restore long-absent elk populations, with herds being reestablished in Kentucky, North Carolina, Ontario, Tennessee, Missouri, Virginia and Wisconsin. RMEF strives to be a strong voice for hunters in access, wildlife management, and conservation policy issues. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation believes that hunting is conservation, that every citizen is entitled to hunt and fish, and that science-based, state-regulated hunting drives wildlife conservation and management.

Coastal Convervation Association

Heartland Precision Rifle partnered with CCA through our Florida franchise in 2019. What started as a mutual respect for what eachother does to give back to conservation and grow the outdoor community, has evolved into a genuine friendship and partnership. Flash forward and now Heartland Precision Rifle sponsors 50+ CCA banquets a year across the state and has donated $60k+ to conservation! CCA was created in 1977, after drastic commercial overfishing along the Texas coast had decimated redfish and speckled trout populations. A group of 14 concerned recreational anglers gathered in a local tackle shop to create the Gulf Coast Conservation Association to turn the tide for conservation. Only four years later, gill nets along the Texas coast were outlawed and both red drum and speckled trout were declared game fish. This previously unimaginable victory launched a new era in marine resource conservation. The successful conservation movement that started with the “Save the Redfish” campaign got the attention of anglers across the Gulf and by 1985, chapters had formed all along the Gulf Coast. By the early ‘90s, the South- and Mid-Atlantic regions had CCA chapters, in 2007, Washington and Oregon chapters were formed and in 2015, the CCA California chapter was created. The fish are different, but the challenges facing them are often the same on all coasts – destructive commercial gear, degraded habitat and misguided management CCA has proven time and again that anglers are the best stewards of the marine environment. We work to protect not only the health, habitat and sustainability of our marine resources, but also the interests of recreational anglers and their access to the resources they cherish. With a growing, well-informed, active membership, CCA continues the mission launched by those 14 visionary anglers so many years ago.

Under Pressure Outdoors

Heartland Precision Rifle partnered with Under Pressure Outdoors through our Florida franchise in 2021. Our Director of Operations, Zack Darlington, was a guest on the UPO podcast series (Ep. 69: A good poke) to discuss the training courses offered at HPR and how those courses can help everyday hunters succeed at harvesting their game. Since then, several HPR team members have been on the podcast to discuss everything from shooting equipment, optics, custom rifles and their favorite hunting stories. Together, Under Pressure Outdoors and Heartland Precision Rifle are growing the hunting community one step at a time.
