http://elkinperil.com/ Elk numbers are plummeting in the Bitterroot National Forest and elsewhere throughout their range. Elk cow:calf ratios are at unsustainable levels. Based on 2005 Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Economic study, big game hunting accounts for $11.3 million annually to the Bitterroot Valley, Montana economy. Hunter numbers were down 36% at the Darby Check Station in 2010 resulting in a potential revenue loss to the Bitterroot Valley of $4 million. Extrapolate those numbers over three states that are experiencing similar elk declines and the cost to those economies is in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
