    1 ELK (Cervus elaphus) on Thu Aug 15, 2013 4:09 am


    Elk were common across North America hundreds of years ago.

    Today they live primarily in western North America, especially in mountainous landscapes such as Wyoming's National Elk Refuge and Yellowstone National Park. Some eastern U.S. states have reintroduced small elk herds into heavily wooded wilderness areas.

    Elk are related to deer but are much larger than most of their relatives. A bull (male) elk's antlers may reach 4 feet above its head, so that the animal towers 9 feet tall.

    There average lifespan is about 8-12 years while living in the wild. Elk usually weigh around 325 to 1,100 lbs it varies.

    Elk are susceptible to a number of infectious diseases(this means they are dirty, lol jk!!!), some of which can be transmitted to livestock. Efforts to eliminate infectious diseases from elk populations, largely through vaccination, have had mixed success.

    For hunters here is a fun fact: The meat of an ELK is leaner and higher in protein than beef or chicken.

    A single male ElK is threatened by wolves.
