Elk Mating Season
« on: September 07, 2017, 05:45:37 PM »
Elk Mating Season
Cow and calf groups are being approached by bulls for the start of the mating season. Elk calves are weaned though they nurse from time to time if mom allows. Young bulls have rubbed off their velvet and are polishing and the older bulls have begun to rub off velvet. Bulls are starting to bugle. The biggest bull elk in the area is currently with cows. Bears are visiting bear baits placed by hunters for the bear hunting season that began Sept. 6. Connors Lake Campground is closed for the season. Lake of the Pines Campground is open. The weather forecast for the weekend calls for Friday to be sunny with a high of 67 and low of 53, Saturday has a chance of showers with a high of 71 and low of 51, and Sunday, mostly sunny with a high of 75 and a low of 53 and finally Monday, will be mostly sunny with a high of 71 and low of 47. The Singing Forest, 2017 Elk Bugling: Get up early on Sept. 15 and accompany the DNR assistant elk biologist, Josh Spiegel, as he checks for bugling bull elk in the forest. Maybe, we will see or hear one! Learn about WI Elk Management. Join us at 6 a.m. at the FRSF Headquarters. To RSVP and more information call the FRSF office at 715-332-5271 ext. 101 or 111. Be sure to RSVP. - Diane Stowell, forestry technician advanced and visitor services associate
