AbstractTransplanting elk into regions where the native elk population is low is relatively common practice. Generally, these releases have been made in winter. This paper discusses the telemetry system developed for use on elk, and the behavior of elk transplanted during the summer. An optimum time for transplanting of elk appears to be during the rutting season.
