The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is signaling a warning about an organized ballot initiative effort just underway in Colorado seeking to forcibly introduce gray wolves into the state. “To be clear, RMEF strongly opposes the forced introduction of gray wolves to Colorado,” said Kyle Weaver, RMEF president and CEO. “We have witnessed 20 plus years of lies and litigation in the Northern Rockies concerning wolves.

By Joe Glotz This recipe is honestly one of my all-time favorite wild turkey recipes. The combination of whiskey, orange and honey make for a terrific glaze and compliment the flavor of the turkey to perfection.
