UNDATED (KDAL) - Wisconsin wildlife officials have decided that the number of elk in the state are not sufficient to support a hunt in 2013. It is estimated that 175 elk are thriving in the state after being re-introduced in Ashland County about 20 years ago. Although native to the state, the elk disappeared in the late 1800's and Big Game Ecologist at the DNR, Kevin Wallenfang, says they are hoping for a population of at least 200 before beginning a hunting season for the animals.
