Who said anything about taking money under the table to continue hunts?
they trapped and moved most of the elk couple years back. was sent out of state or to places where the guides have control. elk population is gone now. they only worried about bears now
They moved a bunch from huntable areas to viewing areas.
Why worry about the bears? I can't imagine they are more of an attraction than elk. Hell I consider them a nuisance.
You would think that the department would be utterly embarrassed by their performance in the wildlife arena. They sure do suck at it.
I agree but hipsters get an absolute boner at the thought of seeing an oversized raccoon
I get one at the though of bears eating hipsters, especially if there is a video.
You're right on both accounts. Heard many locals say they saw it with their own eyes, the elk being trapped and moved to other states.
I saw an elk trap set on a property a hunter was hunting. To be fair the property owner had not let KDFWR know they also had a hunter planning on hunting, (miscommunication). The phone conversation with the CO started like this “i swear to god im more than willing to harvest my bull from your elk trap if there’s one in it when i show up to hunt tomorrow morning”
I recollect the elk were being traded to another state for grouse lol.
Pretty weird fetish, but it’s 2021 and we have the internet.
That's what a local told us when we bumped into them at Steak N Shake over dinner. That Kentucky traded Wisconsin elk for grouse habitat. Not even live grouse, just grouse habitat. Because they didn't figure grouse would survive a single season here without habitat established first.
It's been 5 weeks and I'm still ticked off over my "hunt". The money KDFW takes in, and then they treat traditional hunters this way.. I won't give them another penny. I won't even buy a fishing license anymore. Screw 'em.
All of our elk were trapped in other states and brought here so we’re really just paying it forward in that regard. It sure would be nice to get something substantial out of the deal though. With that said the department has made a lot of mistakes and quite frankly prioritized short term revenues over The overall long term elk herd health and benefits to hunters. There is time to correct but some hard decisions are going to need to be made in the very near future.
Damn, Joe Biden
I saw it looked at the trap
