JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department recommends maintaining population objectives for a popular elk hunting unit south of Jackson.

The recommendation is to keep the Fall Creek Elk Herd at 4,400 head.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission will consider public comment before deciding whether to approve the recommendation this summer.

According to the Associated Press, the Fall Creek herd is the second largest in Wyoming west of the Continental Divide. The herd is estimated to be about 4,650 in size, about where biologists want it to be.

About three years ago, the herd population was about 5,700 and was reduced through increased hunting. But with the population level now where biologists want it, some types of elk licenses have been reduced.
