Bull Elk or Cow?A friend of mine's cousin in wv killed a elk that had crossed over from ky a couple years ago. He called the game warden to let him know and it was a hairy situation for a little bit. They swore he shot it in ky and brought it in to wv. He had to take them to the spot he shot it show them the blood trail and gut pile. They came to the conclusion since there is not elk season in wv that he could legally tag it with his deer tag.

It's not being ruled out. Keep in mind, PA has a large population of Elk and they have had one much longer. Ohio is surrounded with states that have existing herds, and I would bet somewhere in the futire Ohio may be able to carry a population of Elk. Some areas in Southern Ohio has the potential to have the habitat and carrying capacity needed.If the elk are crossing and going into West Virginia any chance they might make their way into Ohio as well?
