At last month’s Natural Resources Board meeting, the board tabled their approval of the state’s 10-year elk management plan for several reasons. All of those reasons pointed to the need for more information. One of those points was germane to the central zone. The other had to do with wolf management zones as they coincided with elk management zones.
Board member Greg Kazmeriski, at the April NRB meeting, had asked DNR wildlife biologist Scott Roepke and DNR Secretary Preston Cole to bring the elk management team and wolf management team together in hopes the wolf harvest could better align with the elk management plan objectives.
