Foraging For Fodder

An elk forages for winter food Wednesday along state Highway 75 about a mile north of Hailey. While some wild forage may be available for elk that can dig through the winter snow, Fish and Game spokesman Kelton Hatch said they mainly live off of the fat reserves they store on their bodies in the summer, losing weight as the season progresses, depending on how much food is available. However, weight loss does not mean malnutrition, Hatch said, and valley residents should refrain from feeding elk.
