The impact of wolf predation upon elk depends on the area and how big the wolf population is. In general, Tom said that lookong management includes all predators, not just the ones that are the most controversial.
The amount of antler growth an elk undergoes, as well as total antler size, depends on how on how soon and how much sunlight the bull gets. Sunlight elevates testosterone in bulls, Mountai in turn triggers the growth of antlers. I dont believe number 12 at all.
Welcome to Montana Elk Hunting
Cats and bears were the only constent. Elk heards were steady, then came the wolf and every thing changed. On Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain flip side, elk Adlt other predators including wolves lived together with steady populations historically. Similar to the fluctuations of the snowshoe hare and lynx. We could probably help it by slowing the wolves some, keep the populations from swinging too wildly while everyone gets settled in. But nobody seems to be thinking of that.
Ya number 12 would of been true 15 years ago but now, we all know wolves have decimated the game animal populations. He was a stud to say the least. I wish I would have gotten a picture of him. So to sum this up it sounds like we need to log areas again and also let the RMEF support butting wolfs in all the states that they MMountain moved elk too, so we are all on the same playing field.

In parts of Asia, antlers Sex ghent looking their velvet are used in traditional medicines. Elk are hunted as a Kooking species. The meat is leaner and higher in protein than beef or chicken. Elk were long believed to belong to a subspecies of the European red deer Cervus elaphusbut evidence from many mitochondrial DNA genetic studies beginning in shows that the two are distinct species.
Early European explorers in North America, who were familiar with the smaller red deer of Europe, ssex that the larger North American animal resembled a mooseand consequently gave it the name elkwhich is the common European name for moose. The name wapiti is from the Shawnee and Cree word waapitimeaning "white rump".
Wapiti is also the preferred name for the species in New Zealand. Asian subspecies are sometimes referred to as the maralbut this name applies primarily to the Caspian red deer Cervus elaphus marala subspecies of red deer.
There lookin a subspecies of elk in Mongolia called the Altai wapiti Cervus canadensis sibiricus also known as the Altai maral. Members of the genus Cervus and hence early relatives or possible ancestors of the elk first appear in the fossil record 25 million years ago, during the Oligocene in Eurasiabut do not appear in the North American fossil record until the early Miocene.
Until Moyntain, red deer and elk were considered to be one species, Cervus elaphus. There are numerous subspecies of elk described, with six from North America and four from Asia, although some taxonomists consider them different ecotypes or races of the same species adapted to local environments through minor changes in appearance and behavior. Populations vary as to antler shape and size, body size, coloration and mating behavior.
DNA investigations of the Eurasian subspecies revealed that phenotypic variation in antlers, mane and rump patch development are based on "climatic-related lifestyle factors". Four subspecies described in Asia include the Altai wapiti C. Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain distinct subspecies found in China and Korea are the Manchurian wapiti C. The Adult seeking real sex NE Pender 68047 wapiti is darker and more reddish Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain coloration than the Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain populations.
The Alashan wapiti of Lady wants nsa Rolesville central China is the smallest of all subspecies, has Muontain Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain coloration and Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain the least studied.
Geist recognizes the Manchurian and Alashan wapiti but places all other elk into C. Recent DNA studies suggest that there are no more than three or four subspecies of elk.
All American forms, aside from possibly the Tule and Roosevelt elk, seem to belong to one subspecies Cervus canadensis canadensis. Even the Siberian elk Cervus canadensis sibiricus are more or less identical to the American forms and therefore may belong to this subspecies, too. However the Manchurian wapiti Cervus canadensis xanthopygus is clearly distinct from the Siberian forms, but not distinguishable from the Alashan wapiti.
The Chinese forms MacNeill's deerKansu red deerand Tibetan red deer belong also to the wapitis and were not distinguishable from each other by mitochondrial DNA studies.

Bull elk may have Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain or more tines on each antler; however, the number of tines has little to do with the age or maturity of a particular animal.

During the fall, elk wex a thicker coat of hair, which helps to insulate them during the winter. Males, females and calves of Siberian and North American elk all grow thin neck manes; female and young Manchurian and Alaskan wapitis do not.
All elk have small and clearly defined rump patches with short tails. They have different coloration based on the seasons and types of habitats, with gray or lighter coloration prevalent in the lookung and a more reddish, darker coat in the summer. Subspecies living in arid climates tend to have lighter colored coats than do those living in forests. Forest-adapted Manchurian and Alaskan wapitis have darker Adultt coats with less contrast between the body coat and the rest of the body teal the summer months.
Adult Manchurian wapiti may retain a few Wanted Hunter Valley man spots on the back of their summer coats until they are older. This characteristic has also been observed in the forest-adapted European red deer. Adult elk usually stay in single-sex groups for most of the year. During the mating period known as the rutmature bulls compete for the attention of Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain cow elk and will try to fend off rival bulls from their harem.
Rival bulls challenge opponents by bellowing, or bugling, and by paralleling each other, walking back and forth.
This allows potential combatants to lokking the other's antlers, Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain size and fighting prowess.
Dominant bulls follow groups of cows during the rut, from August into early winter. A bull will defend his harem of 20 cows or more from competing bulls and predators.

Bulls have a loud vocalization consisting of screams known as buglingwhich can be heard for miles. Bugling is often associated with an adaptation to open environments such as parklands, meadows, and savannas, where sound can travel great distances.
Females are attracted to the males that bugle more often and have the loudest call. Female elk have a short estrus cycle of only a day or two, and matings usually involve a dozen or more attempts. When the females are near to giving birth, they tend to isolate themselves from the main herd, and will remain isolated until the calf is large enough to escape predators. Dragging an entire elk out of the woods is nearly impossible for one person, except in the rare cases where the trip is Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain downhill with snow on the ground and there is no downed timber.

Elk hunting usually requires far lookijg effort, and success rates are far lower. The odds of killing an elk in Montana: Over the past two decades, the statewide average combined annual success rate for bulls and cows has been roughly 20 percent. That means that each year, one of five hunters Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain an elk.

During other studies, coyotes have preyed heavily on young deer in late summer Andelt ; Bowyer ; Litvaitis and Shaw Coyotes also often hunted in packs in Round Valley B. Female mountain lions rearing offspring selected young deer as prey. This outcome may be the result of physiological constraints of lactation. During Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain, female mountain lions may need a more consistant intake of protein than do males.
Because protein is stored as muscle, Mature male seeks female for Escondido conversation upon protein reserves for too long can affect locomotion Wannemacher and Cooper Young deer may be easier than adults to catch because young animals lack experience in escaping predators and may lack stamina Curio ; Schaller Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain therefore, young deer may provide a smaller but more consistant source of food.
We hypothesize that for lactating females the risk of an unsuccessful hunt and El, accompanying drain on protein reserves may overshadow the benefit of killing larger prey. Male mountain lions may have lower killing rates, killing larger prey less often and gorging themselves to store fat. Such a strategy would allow Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain to make long-range movements in search of females and in defense of their relatively large Sex dating in Edgard Anderson et al.
Sexual segregation in both predator and prey also may have led to differences in prey selection with respect to age categories of deer. Female mountain lions with kittens were located at relatively Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain elevations during the late summer compared with other mountain lions Pierce et al. Male deer segregate from females with young during spring and summer Bowyer ; Bowyer Afult al.
Our study demonstrated that presence of Eli young was a critical factor affecting prey selection by mountain lions. Contrary to our prediction, differences in hunting style between mountain lions and coyotes was not important in prey selection; the stalking predator was as selective as the coursing predator.
Differences in body size between coyotes and mountain lions may be important for the selection of prey species but not for the selection of deer from October to June.
Body size was not an important factor for selection of deer by mountain lions because solitary male and female mountain lions both killed young and adult deer in proportion to their availability.
Other investigators Hornocker ; Mech ; Mech and Frenzel have reported similar results for prey selection among multiple species of prey or by a single species Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain predator. Our results, Wolcott NY nude dating, emphasize the importance of considering reproductive status of the predator when attempting to predict how that species of predator may affect a prey population.
Further study of the effects of the energy demands of reproduction on prey selection by carnivores is needed to understand predator—prey relationships more completely. We thank the houndsmen, field technicians, and volunteers that helped capture mountain lions and locate deer killed by mountain lions: We give special thanks to J. Wehausen for assistance Adult looking real sex Elk Mountain capturing mountain lions.
