Elk herds in Northwestern Mn

We hooked up with Ryan Tebo, Alicia Freeman and Kelly Deweese from the Minnesota DNR & Thief Lake WMA yesterday to learn more about the current study of the #Minnesota Elk herds in Northwestern Mn. They are currently studying the favorable habitat of the Elk. We were able to hear a BING from the GPS collars from a cow elk within a mile away. We did not pursue as Ryan did not want to be too intrusive and will wait to explore her current range until see moves on. We did find these cow hoof marks coming out of a wood lot crossing a field. If you look closely, you can see smaller hoof marks that look similar to a smaller deer. Hoping that is the calf that the cow recently gave birth to. Tune your TV's to The Outdoor Report this summer on Fox Sports North to learn more about this project and the Minnesota Elk herds. #OnlyinMn
