Appreciate all of you stepping up. They emailed this morning to tell us that the 500 limit is almost met. That's pretty exciting, considering they didn't expect us to sell out the committed number before the official launch on July 1.
You read my mind with this short introductory video on the projects that RMEF has been a huge part of. I was going to comment earlier before I seen that you had posted this video about a content idea to help fill out the spring and summer seasons that included small advocacy videos like this. I am from West Virginia and this is my second year of being a RMEF member, I signed up last June and my brother used that Gerber Vital knife that was sent to me for signing up last year on his first mule deer in Idaho. So now I have two and can gift him one. Anyway my idea was to take each state that RMEF has done public access or put elk on the mountain, improved habit, etc... whether recently or historically or both and do a short piece on it. Not the the extent of Rain Deer or Selfless or The Dam that Almost Never Was, but similar to this video perhaps in that 10 minute range. I know that you want to come across as teacher not a preacher or salesman, and try to be sensitive to the current socioeconomic situation of our beautiful country. I am sure you can and have found that balance, just like you did in this well done video about RMEF and creating public access and the others that have come before this one.Glad you liked it. Wish we hadn't ended up in a blizzard. We had planned to go to a few other locations on that day we had a film permit, but just didn't work out. We had a very long list of projects, just here in SW Montana.
The amount of work RMEF has done is very impressive. Their effort to promote that work is less impressive. I have hounded them for a long time to do signage, as other groups do. They do it very rarely and usually only when a collaborating partner pushes the idea.
