Managing Small Woodlands for Elk [MISC0164]
A Woodland Fish and Wildlife Project publication.
Written as a practical guide for woodland owners interested in fish and wildlife management. The author lists forage species preferred by Roosevelt and Rocky Mountain Elk, and offers other ideas on managing for timber and elk. Clearings near cover provide forage that elk like best. Social animals, they need thermal and hiding cover for protection from temperature extremes and predators. Traffic on roads disturbs elk.
Cooperators for the Woodland Fish and Wildlife Project include state and federal agencies in Washington and Oregon.
