Grand Teton National Park’s annual Elk Reduction Program will begin Saturday. Under its 1950 enabling legislation, Grand Teton National Park is mandated by federal law to conduct an elk reduction program in cooperation with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department as necessary for conservation of the Jackson elk population. Biologists and administrators from both agencies have reviewed available biological data and concluded that the 2012 program is necessary to keep the Jackson elk herd at or near objective and maintain a desired summer distribution of elk throughout their natural range.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says this year available permits will have some new limitations.  She says there will be no “any elk” permits issued in this year’s program – only antlerless elk are being issued this year.  The number of permits will also be fewer this year.  Last year, 750 permits were issued while this year it will be 725. The elk reduction program utilizes Wyoming-licensed hunters that apply for and receive a limited quota permit to hunt in designated areas 75 and 79: both of which are inside the park but east of the Snake River.

    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
