The thing is, most of them are pretty much tame pets that can be approached without them spooking too bad. If PGC were to issue so many tags that it wasn't hard to draw one, the elk populations would drop to critical levels because it would be like a repeat of the buffalo shoots on the great plains.
By the way, great pictures OP!
you might be surprised to know many of us in that area think that would be a
good idea. who invited them anyway? were any hunters asked wether drasticly reducing the deer herd while drasticly increasing the elk herd to promote a tourist industry was ok with them? 25 years ago we were told that area could no longer sustain a large deer herd. but what we werent told was
about the plan they had for the elk.
