The National Park Service reports that 462 elk were killed in what was the second year of a herd reduction plan that began last fall.
The Bismarck Tribune reported that the kills were attributed to 138 volunteers who had been selected to harvest elk in Theodore Roosevelt National Park between Oct. 18 and Dec. 22.
This bull elk, which weighs around 950 pounds, is shown on a farm in St. Joseph, Ill. The farm raises elk for meat, breeding stock for hunting and urine for hunters who use it to attract deer in the wild.
A Jamestown man was honored last weekend for his charity and community work over the past three decated.
Larry Knoblich was named the North Dakota Elk of the Year. The Elks’ main project in North Dakota is Camp Grassick, to which Knoblich donates part of the registration fees to each year.
It took years to accomplish, but the first year of an effort to thin out the elk herd at Theodore Roosevelt National Park has been deemed a success.
Park officials said 406 elk were killed inside the park and another 129 elk killed in hunting units adjacent to the park in an effort to reduce the size of the herd, which had grown to roughly 900 animals.

“We can go back and say, look, it’s in (state law). This is how we have to conduct our business. We’re not shooting fish in a barrel,” said Brian Kramer, a spokes-man for the North Dakota Deer Ranchers Association. “We are conducting a legitimate hunt out there.”

Many years ago I knew a fellow named Marshall Anderson, a Wisconsin native who moved to western Montana and then to Idaho where he worked as an elk hunting guide. Marshall owned a bare bones Remington Model 700 ADL in 7mm Rem. Magnum, a rifle he affectionately called his “Big Seven.”
Sportsmen Against Hunger has delivered nearly 3,000 pounds of elk meat to food pantries across the state through Dec. 24.
The elk have been harvested from Theodore Roosevelt National Park. A total 268 elk have been taken so far with the goal of 275 by Jan. 20, and more is expected in the future as the elk reduction program will resume next year.

Elk hunting seasons are long over, but if you are thinking of hunting elk somewhere in 2011, now is the time to begin planning. The days are gone when you could decide last minute to go elk hunting in the fall, drive to a western state and buy a license across the counter. Colorado was the last state where you could do that.
