Well, they were stocked on the North Carolina side of the park, and there is very little if any suitable habitat between where they were stocked and suitable habitat (Cade's Cove) on the Tennessee side. I wouldn't expect them to cross into Tennessee from Cataloochee.

I always thought Cades Cove was the perfect place for starting an Elk herd . It is grazing areas which Elk need . Cades Cove is in the center of the park surrounded by mountains so they are safer from poaching. Cades Cove will allow lots of people to see the Elk.

Nice.

I'm guessing that is a Cataloochee elk (as opposed to Royal Blue)?

Thanks for sharing

I'm glad the TWRA has no problems with Smokies elk moving outside the park.

I would have expected them at some point to expand onto private farm lands in both TN and NC just like the wild boars have but it seems they have not expanded very much, which I guess is a good thing considering the crop damage they do.

I guess if the herd does get large enough some of them might find there way to Cades Cove.

They should have been released there to begin with. Lot better habitat than Cataloochee for wildlife.
I had thought it the perfect place for Elk.
