G&F Plans Meeting On Afton Elk Herd
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department plans a public meeting in Afton this month to discuss the local elk population.
The game department says it’s reviewing its population objective for the Afton elk herd. The department reviews all elk herd populations every five years.
The population for the Afton herd in the Star Valley and the Grey’s River drainage is 2,200 animals. The population has averaged about 2,300 animals over the last five years. Wildlife managers are not proposing any changes to the population objective.
The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. May 22, at the Afton Civic Center.
