It was known that this would happen. The wildlife people just didnt care about the farmers. When you throw grazers into a place without alot of grazing habitat, they will head for the best grazing habitat(private land farms). The same thing is happening with TN's elk herd in Royal Blue. The bull that came through my place several years ago tore down multiple fences, allowing cattle to get out and cause problems that way before he just sort of mysteriously disappeared. They just do not belong in these type of areas.

That is interesting. Maybe it's time to issue more than five permits for elk in Tennessee. Seems like Kentucky got it figured out.

That would be the ideal solution but NC has no elk management plan. How hard would it be to implement an elk hunt like TN?

The best grazing habitat around is actually the fields in Cataloochee but they are small.

IIRC Tennessee's elk zone includes a fair amount of private lands.

So you do not want them to issue more than 5 elk permits in TN?

Not until the herd can sustain more than that. I would love to have a better chance of getting drawn, but not at the expense of the herd growing.

I know the farmers in Colorado make over 500.00 a person for every Elk hunter they give permission to hunt . There is no guarantee on seeing or getting an Elk either. I think the farmers here could make a good deal of money on the Elk if there were enough Elk and enough Elk hunters.

The hunters in Colorado pay the farmers for every bale of hay he feeds and for any damage to his crops to . The big guys will pay for Elk if we get them to.
