Les Schwab Steps Up Again
RMEF is focused on ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage. But the organization does not carry the conservation banner by itself. RMEF has many outstanding partners that assist us in that endeavor. One of them is Oregon-based Les Schwab Tires.
Les Schwab is in its 13th year of sponsoring the Les Schwab County Rifle Drawing. Since 2001, Les Schwab has donated 1,410 rifles and gun cases to RMEF’s western chapters, helping to raise more than $1.9 million that protected more than 11,000 acres of wildlife habitat.
In 2014, Les Schwab donated a Howa Hogue Stainless .270 Win Rifle with a 3.5-10x42 Nikko Sterling Game King Scope and gun case to 122 chapters. Winners of the rifle drawings are also entered into a drawing for a Utah bull elk hunt with Wild Country Outfitters donated by Les Schwab .
RMEF is grateful for the strong partnership between Les Schwab Stores, Les Schwab Corporate, RMEF headquarters and RMEF chapters. This collaboration is yet another example of how Hunting Is Conservation.
