conservation work

Stone Glacier employees work to remove old fencing during an antelope habitat improvement project in Southwest Montana.

Conservation is everything to hunters.

Stone Glacier would not be able to operate as the company we are today without conservation efforts that have protected and continue to expand healthy wildlife populations, productive wildlife habitat, and public access to hunt wild places.

Stone Glacier is not just a hunting company though; we are all avid hunters ourselves. Conservation is deeply personal to everyone who works here. As we all carry our own hunting traditions forward, conservation is integral to who we are every time we step into the field.

Hunting, by nature, can be a highly effective act of conservation. Killing animals in accord with sound wildlife management can play an active, vital role in keeping wildlife populations healthy. Hunters also contribute millions of dollars to conservation efforts every year through the purchase of tags, licenses, and Pittman-Robertson Act funds.

At Stone Glacier, we believe there is also more work we can do. Whether it’s supporting nonprofits, government agencies, or boots-on-the-ground projects, our time and money are powerful forces for wildlife, habitat, public access, and land management. To this end, we are active members of 2% for Conservation by donating 1% of our annual profit and at least 1% of our staff’s time toward conservation and public access efforts.

We are also active in many other arenas of conservation, and you can learn more about our work through the list of organizations below as well as the detailed stories at the bottom of this page.

We all benefit from conservation. Generations before us worked to give us the opportunities we enjoy today, and we are proud to help carry the torch at Stone Glacier.
