    Why? CWD will kill them anyway...

    Wisconsin is riddled with CWD so why bother?





    LAST ROUND OF ELK DELIVERED TO WISCONSIN, LIKELY THE LAST INTER-STATE RELOCATION
    This was the last shipment in a five-year agreement between Kentucky and Wisconsin.
    Earlier this month, a group of trailers unloaded 48 wild elk from Kentucky into a 7-acre quarantine pen in Wisconsin's Flambeau River State Forest near Winter.

    This last shipment of elk, which are scheduled to be released into the wild in about two months, are probably the last to be transported from state to state. The spread of diseases like chronic wasting disease,

    Yeah, what is the point? If the CWD doesn't do them in then the Indians sure will.

    If they are smart the herd will grow, ours here in Michigan did and it is still growing.

    Nope, the Wisconsin elk herd is not growing...pretty dismal results. They're getting hit by cars, the calves gobbled up by predators, some shot by mistaking them for deer and others poached. Add the CWD to the scenario and it looks like a failed project.

    Not sure how dumb the hunter is to not know the difference between and elk and a deer.

    When you see rubs 7' high. You have a clue.

    The cows protect the bull. A big tree to hide behind helps avoid being drampled.

    Maybe because I see them all the time I donít see how they can be mistaken. Even at a distance size makes a difference, plus I donít see most hunters there having a whole lot of shots at 400 yards. Heck I donít think most hunters in this state shoot their deer much beyond 2-250, most not all.
