Elk Hunting in Kansas
Elk Hunting Information
The elk is the largest species in the deer family and one of the largest terrestrial mammals in North America. Sometimes called the wapiti, bull elk have massive antlers that shed each winter. They begin regrowing in the spring, and can sprout nearly a full inch every day, reaching eight or more points on each antler.
While growing, elk antlers – up to four feet long – are protected by skin called velvet, which is shed during summer when the horns are fully developed. In some cultures, this shed velvet is sold as medicine or aphrodisiacs (although we don’t recommend trying it).
Bull elk vocalize by bugling, a sound that can be heard for miles, while a cow call may attract the bulls closer to your hunting blind. Bull elk can grow up to 750 lbs and have a reddish-brown coat.
