Hunting is an important aspect of wildlife management and the HRCA's Elk Hunt provides hunters with an opportunity to play a vital role in maintaining the health of the herd.
The mission of the Backcountry is to provide visitors with unprecedented opportunities to enjoy nature near where they live while protecting and conserving natural, cultural, archaeological, and historical resources for the enjoyment of future generations.
The Backcountry Conservation & Education Fund's mission is to protect and conserve wildlife habitat and provide outdoor education and recreation opportunities in the HRCA Backcountry in order to promote and improve environmental literacy and ensure the conservation of the Backcountry for generations to come.
