The information gathered nnd the program outlined for the conservation of this unique and exceedingly val uable naUonal asset Is giyen in a bulle tin Just published by the government printing office. There are estimated to be 70.000 elk in the l'nlted States. The largest herds are in the Yellowstone National park and the surrounding national for ests. Small herds are scattered ihrough some of the forests of Mn tana, Washington, Idaho. Colorado, and Wyoming. Small plants of elk have; been made in other states and a few are In private herds on estates, moat ly in the east. The danger of destruction of these herds, however, through gradual occu- ; patlon of their natural winter range has become Imminent The public rec ognizes the necessity for their perpet uation, but the stepi already taken to I l . provide for them .ire inadequate. The problem ia one of land control whereby provision can be made for reserving sufficient forage for tho elk during the different seasons In tho Yellowstone park area Is the largest remaining area of public land suited to the perpetuation of elk in their nat I i ural haunts. Here is a vast mountain region which, so far as summer range is con trrned. is adequate tor all the animals now there. It was reserved primarih for its scenic interest and watt rshed value. However, severe weather for ces the elk to lower and more open lands of milder climate. Unfortunately, the need of winter range was not given consideration at the time the reservations were ei ab lisbed, and large areas of Jand within what was formerly the winter elk range were entered under the public land laws and passed to private own ership There is also the prohlem of work ing out adjustments in the vise of Ihe range by domestic animals nnd the game animals.

The dates of open seasons is a hig fac tor in the winter losses of elk. Too early season means that many cows are killed before the calves are weaned or have gained sufficient strength to carrj them through a hard winter In addition, the meat of animals killed during the warm weather of Septem ber often spoils and (here results an economic waste. There is a class of men. who. under the pretense of hunting coyotes or trapping Other fur-bearing animals, enter the game fields during the lin ed season and kill elk illegallv Troper administration should be provided to, prevent such vicious practices. The annual increase should be used I for legitimate hunting, but under proper restrictions as to number? and regions. Lav." enforcement is funda mental and the tooth hunter, the pot hunter, and ecr game violator must 'go. Provisions made with regard to I forage for elk go for naught unless the hunting is proper! regulated. Ar present the state laws provide limits on individual hags and prescribe open seasons, but there is no limit to the number of licenses issued Ob jviously, the number of licenses issued annually must be limited to the num ber of the annual increase In the I main herds less what are needed for I the maintenance of present herds and for distribution to build up herds else where. The Benevolent and Protective Or ! der of Elks, as a lodge, has recenth gone on record as being opposed to I the wasteful practice of slaughtering telk for their teeth and antlers This lodge is also becoming interested in I the solution of the various problems I involved in the perpetuation of the existing herds Wolves! mountain lions, and coyotes cause lni''r nuaaa nl r-Ht halmilg1ii of the year's increase of calves Vig orous measures against these preda tory animals are being taken which should not be allowed to relax.

The ranchers are suffering and as they undertake iii self-edefnsc 10 protect their interests, the elk suf fer. Here about 10,000 acres ot ad ditional winter feeding grounds are re quired and could be purchased and fenced for the sum of $300,000! This is considered a comparatively small foutlay to perpetuate the great elk I herds that are grouped there. Development of oth r has ranches within the present elk range should 'be undertaken so that foratre will be I available for emergency feedinu The general program of elk protection would be greatly benefited If the re stricted areas described should be I made state game refugees where hunt ing would be prohibited, as elk habit Ually go and thrive better where they are least disturbed Served Two Years And Was in the Meuse-Argonne Fight Private A.
