Still No Feeding On The Elk Refuge

January 23, 2013 Greater Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
Feeding season ends for elk.

The number of elk gathering on the National Elk Refuge continues to increase even though supplemental feeding has not yet begun there for the season.  According to the update released late last week, an estimated 3700 to 5000 elk are now on the refuge or nearby Forest Service land.  Many are on the northern end of the refuge where exact counting cannot be easily accomplished.  According to Refuge Biologist Eric Cole, snow and forage conditions have not necessitated feeding to begin, even though foraging has resulted in craters and increased snow density in areas the majority of the elk have gathered.  Cole says there is still significant forage in the wet meadow area north and northwest of Miller Butte.  Feeding last year, Cole says, did not begin until February second.

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
