Just got an email with a video about reintroduction of elk into West Virginia. Seems it was facilitated in part by RMef. Does anyone know if this is the first time in West Virginia?

First time. Well, they brought more but, this is the first attempt to establish them here in modern times.

There was a nice write up about it in the latest issue of Bugle magazine. A lot of stuff had to come together to get it done right. Pretty cool.

Gobbler is a game commissioner for the state and had his hands in the whole process from building the pens to the releasing of them. He’s got the details.
