MISSOULA, Mont.-Outdoor television personality and seminar speaker Kristy Titus is the latest celeb to join the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation as a feature member of Team Elk.
RMEF recently launched the Team Elk concept to help capture the spirit of all RMEF members, now more than 180,000 strong, working together for a common goal-ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife and their habitat.
"Every member of RMEF is a member of Team Elk," said Steve Decker, vice president of marketing for RMEF, "and feature members are folks who are both passionate about our mission and well positioned to represent us to new and larger audiences. Kristy fits that role. She knows elk hunting, she's a terrific ambassador for women in the outdoors, and she loves RMEF. We're excited to welcome her as a feature member of Team Elk."
Other feature members include country music stars Easton Corbin and Craig Morgan, baseball hall-of-famer Goose Gossage, NASCAR personality Kerry Earnhardt, professional bull riding champions Dustin Elliott and Austin Meier, football legend Walt Garrison, hunting pros Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, and others.
Along with her Team Elk contemporaries, Titus will lend her name, fame, appearances and audience reach to help advance the RMEF cause.
"Some of my best memories are of elk hunting with my dad while packed deep into the backcountry on mules," said Titus. "When I was 13, I was with my dad when he called in and harvested a 5x5 bull on public land in Idaho. Memories like this are why I am proud to serve RMEF and its mission in conservation and education, helping to ensure that the legacy of the hunting tradition continues for generations to come."
The Oregon native is a lifelong hunter and angler. Her passions include elk hunting, bowhunting, do-it-yourself outdoor adventures of all kinds, conservation, fitness and empowering women to enjoy sporting traditions. Learn more at www.pursuethewild.com.
