Elk Begin Staying On Refuge

elk migration

There has been significant elk movement to the National Elk near Jackson over the past two weeks.  Refuge Biologist Eric Cole says elk numbers on the south end of the Refuge have fluctuated between 200 and 600 animals with 412 counted Tuesday.  Radio and GPS telemetry indicate that elk from the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park summering segments arrived on Monday, November 18, and approximately 20% of radio collared elk likely to winter on Refuge are now in the vicinity.  Cole says unlike earlier in the hunting season, this group of elk has largely remained on the refuge despite hunting pressure.  Based on harvest reports returned by hunters, 46 elk have been harvested in the elk refuge hunt to date, with almost half of those occurring in the last two weeks.
