Made it to the Missouri Elk Meeting in Van Buren on December 3rd, 2018. Just a roam and talk to individuals at different table. Interesting what the future will hold.
Elk in Missouri. 1. Was surprised how many viewed across the state. 2. Also population is just under 180 animals, had calf deaths this year. 3. Also surprising around 50 % are cows and 50 % are bulls. 4. They like open landscape with woods nearby.
Elk in Missouri make your opinions known on link. My opinion. 1. Resident only, 2. Should have a Elk Festival weekend like Arkansas does, 3. Will surrounding landowners get chance at additional tags that are transferable, since no tag system is that way in Missouri, if so please announce make this public, 4. Please make public aware of odds of being drawn, since Arkansas is like 10 out of 11,000 low chance of being drawn, 5. Will Missouri RMEF get a tag to auction off, if so public needs to known ahead of time. They want public comments on 4 subjects. https://moconservation.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0xHcstqzHhT9OYt?fbclid=IwAR1FEHotpdOYJm_9uZDyP6cRs44LpAV-0ZE-lP5XFJqEs9KXIL2FOlHl-2Q
Cougar in Missouri
I asked about the cougar trapped back in 2012 and was at the start of the southeast red line I drew, relocated to the north point and found it's was back right in the middle of the swarm of GPS elk location and has feed on dead elk..6 years ago that cat has to be getting big by now
