Public hearings expected on plans to create second elk herd

BARABOO, WI (WTAQ) - The state Natural Resources Board is expected to order public hearings Wednesday on a plan to create a second elk herd.

DNR officials have talked about acquiring elk from Kentucky to start a new herd near Black River Falls – and to expand the current herd at Clam Lake in far northwest Wisconsin.

The DNR expects to import the first of 50 new elk in 2015. Officials have a total population goal of 390 elk, enough to start a fall hunting season.

Regulations have been drafted to establish a new management zone for an elk hunt.

The matter is expected to be discussed further at Wednesday’s DNR Board meeting in Baraboo.
