Not all of RMEF’s access projects consist of acquiring large chunks of land in elk country. In the case of Luera Peak, New Mexico, the requirement to preserve access was a road easement along two miles of private road that allows hunters and other recreationists to access over 52,000 acres of public and State Trust Land.

RMEF partnered with the New Mexico Dept. of Game and Fish as well as the New Mexico State Land Office to make this project happen. It is this creative approach to problem solving that has allowed RMEF to open, secure or improve access to more than 1.2 million acres since 1984.
