Welcome to MTN Fest - OutdoorClass Storyteller Night
OutdoorClass experts Jaime Teigan, John Barklow, Corey Jacobsen and Randy Newberg gather for a night filled with stories from the field. The four have hundreds of thousands of hours of combined experience in the outdoors and hunting. Hear their tips, tricks and secrets to being successful in the woods and beyond.
Live music from country music artist Heath Sanders
Heath is an Arkansas natural gas-worker-turned-songwriter, whose realness informs the music he crafts. It all started for Heath after he posted on Facebook his cover of Chris Stapleton’s “Either Way” in early 2018. The video went viral and transformed his life. His new hit “Raised on Red”, featuring Justin Moore, is out now.
We’ll also have exclusive raffles and great giveaways. The evening event is open to the public, but donations to RMEF are encouraged.
For folks preferring an all-inclusive experience, a $40 ticket will include an exclusive, custom OutdoorClass 24 oz. mug from YETI, a basket sandwich/chips meal, drink ticket and a ticket to an exclusive drawing.

RMEF Conservation Celebration Night
sponsored by Traeger and YETI
Join RMEF as we celebrate our mission and thank our volunteers for 38 years of dedication to ensuring the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage. Don’t miss great raffles, games and giveaways! End the evening with an incredible live music experience, The Cleverlys!
We’ll wrap up the night with a one-of-a-kind comedy/music blend coming from the remote part of the Ozark Mountains, near Cane Spur, Arkansas. The Cleverlys have traveled the globe, if the globe only consisted of the United States, performing at music venues and some of the nation’s largest festivals like Stagecoach, Telluride, CMA Music Fest and even the Grand Ole Opry. The faux-family band is fronted by Digger Cleverly, along with his nephews, Ricky Lloyd, Sock, DVD and Cub. Don’t be fooled though, band members are all accomplished musicians putting their unique bluegrass spin on cover songs from any genre. The Cleverlys set list includes genius arrangements of tunes like Psy’s “Gangnam Style”, a medley of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity”, and Flo Rida’s “Low”.
The evening event is open to the public, but donations to RMEF are encouraged.
Those preferring an all-inclusive experience, a $60 ticket is available that will include a Rambler 10 oz. Lowball from YETI, a basket sandwich/chips meal, drink ticket and a raffle ticket to win exclusive prizes from Traeger and YETI.

High-Altitude Sickness Warning The base of the resort is 6,800 feet above sea level. Some people may experience symptoms associated with high altitude. Symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, nausea, loss of appetite, restless sleep, fatigue and loss of energy or shortness of breath. Hydration is the best way to help your body adjust to high altitude. Generally the low humidity at altitude keeps the air dry, so you should drink twice as much water as you would at home. Also remember to protect your skin. With every 3,000' increase in altitude, UV levels rise by 10-12%.
