Wyoming Wants Elk Feedground Fed Approval

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service is recommending renewal of a permit for a Jackson Hole elk feedground operated by the state of Wyoming.

The permit for the 91-acre Alkali Creek Feedground would be good for two decades.

A decision on the feedground permit had been delayed because 14 acres of the site intruded on the Gros Ventre (groh-VAWNT’) Wilderness. But the feedground’s boundary was redrawn last year to no longer include the portion in the wilderness.

Game and Fish officials applauded the forest’s permit proposal, while conservation groups criticized the proposal.

Game and Fish biologist Doug Brimeyer tells the Associated Press that this past winter between 400 and 2,300 wintering elk used Alkali Creek Feedground.
