Tule Elk

The tule elk (Cervus canadensis ssp. nannodes) is a subspecies of elk found only in California, ranging from the grasslands and marshlands of the Central Valley to the grassy hills on the coast. The tule elk’s name comes from the tule on which it feeds, which grows in the marshlands. It is the smallest subspecies of all elk. When the Europeans first arrived, 500,000 +/- tule elk roamed California, but by 1895, the tule elk population was only 28. Conservation measures (driven by hunters) were taken to protect the species in the 1970′s and today, the tule elk population exceeds 4,000.

Manitoban Elk

Manitoban elk are a subspecies of elk found in the Midwestern United States and Canadian Prairie provinces. Compared to the Rocky Mountain elk, the Manitoban elk is larger in body size, with smaller antlers. The subspecies was driven into near extinction by 1900, but has recovered since. Almost all Manitoban elk hunting takes place on high fence operations. Although a wild population of Manitoban elk does occur in Manitoba, demand by hunters is far greater than available hunting opportunity. Elk hunting is available only through a limited entry draw system to residents of Manitoba.
