Additional Information: Wolf Mountain Ranch is located in an area where elk herds have been over herd objective. It is now at or approaching objective and cow license levels have been reduced in response. This is a migratory elk herd. The ranch continues its work with CPW to assist in achieving herd objectives.  Since elk do not always remain on the ranch and harvest levels off the ranch are high, the size of bulls available to hunters should not be considered "trophy" class.
