A love of elk, elk hunting and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation runs deep in the Warning family. How deep, you ask? Jim Warning, his sons Keith and Kevin, and grandson Nick Fogelton are all RMEF life members. Keith and Kevin, like their father, are also habitat partners. And Kevin stepped up his volunteer efforts to serve as a former Illinois state chair.
The four of them recently made the trek west from their homes in Illinois to the rugged mountains of Wyoming where they hooked up with Jake Clark to set up elk camp. The goal was to make memories in the wild country and return home with meat to fill the freezer.
Kevin armed himself with a Kimber rifle he purchased at the RMEF Shawnee Chapter Big Game Banquet held earlier in the year in Carbondale, Illinois. He posed his rifle for a scenic photo. He used that rifle in a much more memorable photo—one that shows him with his beauty of a 6 x 6 bull elk.
Kevin was not alone in his success. Two other members of the party took bull elk.
Congratulations to the Warning crew and thank you for your support!
