Elk, also known as wapiti, are members of the cervid family that tend to cause land destruction to areas with large amounts of vegetation. Many people would be shocked to learn that there are at least 1 million elk roaming throughout the United States eating grasses and herbs from forests, gardens and farms. 

Here are the top 10 states to spot elk in the United States:

  1. Pennsylvania
  2. Wyoming
  3. Idaho
  4. Utah
  5. New Mexico
  6. Colorado
  7. Oregon
  8. Arizona
  9. Montana
  10. Washington

Growers that wish to protect their land from elk damage should consider installing elk fence, the most effective means for elk management on landscapes. Elk fencing has a certified breaking strength of up to 1400 pounds - the max weight of adult male elk.
