Elk Calves

Posted 6/23/2008 7:53pm by Stacy Handy.

The calving season as officially started! We have four new calves on the ground. All seem to be doing well and their mothers are over-protective as normal. It is common for the cows to hide their calves for the first ten days before allowing them to venture over to the feed bunks during feeding. We often don't know they've calved until a week or two later. Thankfully, calving problems are rare in elk. We are hoping for at least two more calves  (I will try to get some pictures or them) and will keep you all updated.
