Thank-you guys for trying to make a difference and help our herds. It’s sad what things have become. Let me know if you need any help locating limpers anywhere in the area

Is there a state wide map that shows where cases of hoof rot have been confirmed?

Hoof rot report map. When you harvest an elk with hoof rot your supposed to report it at this site. You can also report observations, when you find dead elk with hoof rot, ect....

https://wdfw.wa.gov/species-habitats/diseases/elk-hoof

Looking on the map there doesn't appear to be a report or reports of 17 dead elk found in 2021. Maybe to recent and not yet displayed on the map? 


BBarns,

Are you the fellow handing out the "Defund WDFW" stickers around town?

Bruce, is the study that's being done by WSU an improvement over the "work" that was done while it was completely in the hands of the WDFW? Or, are outside parties who may have a stake in the result still finding it? Is Dr. Fairbrother still involved?

thats crazy because Elk hunt a lot from bawfaw to trap creek and mainly in the rock crk-trap crk areas and I have only seen one bull with hoof rot on that side in the last 3 years and the one I did see was close to the farm fields. The most hoof rot i see up there is strictly the bawfaw side. I have no idea of cause, But I have started to notice in the willipa hills the closer to farm fields the more elk with hoof rot I have seen. not sure why, but it really sucks when you do see them.
Luckily our local herds do not have it yet but a few miles away in Vail I hear they are finding a few dead elk with hoof rot. A few years back it was really bad in the Rock Creek area of the Pe Ell South unit.

It still is.
:'( :'(
My daughter passed on 5 different branched bulls in the Pe Ell S because they were so sick and emaciated. All could barely walk.

I hunt that general area too. I agree that most of the limpers I see are down by the farmer's fields.
