Backcountry Beat, May 2021
This young organization started around a campfire, and at BHA we try to recreate the energy of that historic initial gathering as often as possible.
This week, we're welcoming BHA members from across the continent to join us here in Missoula for the 10th Annual North American Rendezvous, where we'll have campfires galore and good energy radiating across the valley. There's still time to grab a ticket to join us in person or virtually (sweet virtual lineup you can see here) and share in the revelry! Don't miss out on informative seminars, unbeatable auction items and giveaways and much, much more! I can't wait..my bucket is going to overflow!!
We're also launching the 2021 Hike to Hunt competition! New this year is the option to bike, paddle and HIKE to get your miles in before hunting season and raise critical funds for conservation in the process! Participants will have the chance to win great prizes from BHA partners Danner, NRS, Benchmade, Savage and Big Agnes! I'm going to be out there competing with the rest of you to see who can get after it the most this summer in the name of getting in shape, fun and fundraising.
Thank you for all that you do! I'm looking forward to another record-setting summer for BHA and public landowners everywhere.
Before I go, I’d be remiss not to recognize Walker Conyngham who has put in countless hours pulling The Beat together each month for your reading enjoyment amongst a plethora of other duties. Walker, your dead pan humor and work ethic will be missed as you head into what looks to be an amazing Montana summer and law school in the fall. Cheers to you and the adventures you will have and the continued conservation contributions you will make!
Onward and upward,
President and CEO
