Re: California Elk...Where are they?
I lived in the Owens Valley, (Bishop) for 26 years. During that time I saw deer population go from...Which one do I shoot,too... Didn't even see a doe. Poor management at it's best. I too wondered many times why there weren't any elk in the areas you asked about. Who knows. The herd that lives outside Big Pine sure do live in a terrible place. Nothing but sagebrush. However, they sure provide a beautiful opportunity for tourists to take pictures of elk feeding in the alfalfa fields, (where you can't hunt).
