Abstract

Ten adult cow elk (Cervus elaphus) were released on the Cimarron National Grasslands, Morton County, Kansas, in November, 1990. Data collected from a radio-telemetry study of these elk were used to calculate which of the available habitats they preferred or avoided. Overall, sandsage prairie and riparian habitats seemed to be preferred. The results of the study also indicated that shortgrass prairie, crop land, and Conservation Reserve Program habitats were avoided. Utilization of these habitats by month was examined. The results of this study were compared to those of other studies in similar habitats.
