A friend of mine caught a elk on his trail cam a few weeks ago in Marion county. There are two elk farms not too far away plus it might have been a satellite elk from Ft. Riley.

It has to be from Ft Riley or a farm. Elk just don't do well in KS, if they did we would have them everywhere. That's not to say they couldn't adapt but who knows maybe we are on our way to a new way of hunting.

Elk might not do well in Kansas now, but they were sure as heck here back in the old days. There are many accounts from the frontier days of elk being hunted/shot across Kansas. In those days they were just another plains animal.
