Earlier this year, the CPW started tracking some collared elk in DAU E4 (Poudre Canyon/Cameron Peak area)

They recently released some tracking data from these elk due to the Cameron Peak Fire.

See link. I think the old conversation about having a campfire while hunting is solved.

Interesting, thanks Brad for putting this out there. Wonder if there is a comparable study after wolves are introduced into an area showing the movement of collared elk?

What’s with the Double Post Genie? I thought Bowsite did an update.

IMO, the fires will actually benefit the wildlife in the long run. Some of the biggest elk herds I saw in the NW corner routinely feed on the new growth in old burns.

Good stuff. Up here where I am, two miles from the fire perimeter, we never saw any influx of deer, elk, or moose. But I did learn from the Judas elk that I've been hunting one of my spots wrong.. :-)

This moose wasn't too concerned.
