MISSOULA, Mont.—Competition, precision, skill and fun will be on full display at the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s 2019 Elk Camp, presented by YETI, and Mountain Fest, fueled by MTN Ops. The events take place July 11-14 at the Canyons Village in Park City, Utah.
“’Interactive’ is the name of the game at this totally revamped Elk Camp and Mountain Fest,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “There will be something for everyone to see and experience. We can’t wait to gather in the Wasatch Mountains to celebrate hunting, conservation and the outdoors.”
Nine-time champion Corey Jacobsen leads what is expected to be a record field at the World Elk Calling Championships (WECC), presented by Sportsman’s Warehouse, as he seeks to defend his 2018 professional division title. Other divisions include men’s, women’s, voice, youth and pee wee. Contestants will battle it out for $14,000 in cash plus gear prizes. Go here to register and for other information.
Approximately 3,000 participants are expected to take aim at more than 100 3D targets spread across six different Total Archery Challenge (TAC) courses above Park City. Preregistration is required.
Admission to the WECC and other Mountain Fest activities is free and open to the public.
