WDFW planning elk counts in the Blue Mountains
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will be doing annual elk counts in the Blue Mountains in the southeastern corner of the state this month.
People may notice low-flying airplanes or helicopters in areas elk are known to be present. According to a news release from the agency, the surveys are less strenuous on elk than repeated interactions with hikers or other people recreating. There is also no “herding” of elk during the surveys. Instead the aircraft make quick flyovers. More information is available at www.bit.ly/3belLIb.
