Post by: bbarnes on November 17, 2020, 10:22:08 AM
Opening day of modern firearm season,a 1 x 4 bull was harvested that had bad hoof rot.There were also 7 limping cows with him,that could barely walk.This is the 7900 rd of mount saint Helens ,that boarders the USFS lands and owned by pacific corp.Ive hunted this land my whole life,and have never seen a limping elk there.

Not surprised. Local herd here in Yacolt has multiple limpers.

Have there been any positive shifts since WSU took over the program? Did they dump Dr. Fairbrother? Is Jonker still the big kahuna?

If you are interested in updates on WSU's research I would recommend reaching out to Dr. Margaret Wild.  I have found that she is pretty good at responding to email inquiries regarding their research.

And outside influence would be my guess.

Isn't hoof rot confined to the hooves?  Wouldn't common sense dictate that whatever is causing this is coming in contact with their hooves?  As in its in the soil?

Well what you can do is go put out mineral licks with iodine and that should help. The elk i hunt dont have it but the elk a few miles away habe it realy bad.

Saw a limper bull in a farmers field outside of Yelm. Working its way north... foot rot that is.
