DNR: Know the Difference Between Deer and Elk Before Shooting
Published on 10/15/2021 under News With archery and crossbow deer seasons already underway and the gun deer season in just over a month, the DNR is encouraging hunters to know their target. While white-tailed deer are far more prevalent, Wisconsin is also home to around 400 elk. The DNR has launched a campaign to reminder hunters of the difference. •The most notable difference is the size, as an adult elk will stand about 1-2 feet taller than an adult deer. •While a smaller elk may be similar to a large deer, the two also have different color markings. An elk typically has a tan rump patch, black legs and a dark brown mane. Deer on the other hand, are typically a lighter tan with their legs matching their bodies. They'll have a white throat patch and the namesake fluffy white tail. •Antlers can also be a giveaway. A bull elk's antlers sweep backwards from the animals head, a white-tailed buck's antlers curve forward. •And in Wisconsin specifically, accessories make a difference. Most elk either have an ear tag or GPS collar. Last year, two elk were unintentionally taken on opening day of the deer season. The DNR says any elk taken without a tag may result in a fine and a revocation of your hunting license.
