Dedicated to the premise that protection, careful management, and shared uses of natural resources can achieve desired social, economic, and environmental conditions without necessary waste or depletion, the Boone and Crockett Club promotes conservation of all resources, especially in places where wildlife ties the land together and helps define the character of ecosystems.
The Boone and Crockett Wildlife Conservation Program is focused primarily on the integration of wildlife conservation and private land management. This program includes research, extension of information, teaching, and documentation.
A key component of the research-extension-documentation effort is centered on Boone and Crockett Club's Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch and the Elmer E. Rasmuson Wildlife Conservation Center near Dupuyer, Montana. The 6,000 acre working cattle ranch and the Center abut the Lewis and Clark National Forest along the Rocky Mountain Front.
