Washington Public Meeting Spotlights Dungeness Elk Herd

Are there any differences between a Dungeness Elk compared to say an Elk from Colorado or Utah?

Washington Public Meeting Spotlights Dungeness Elk Herd

I think the "Dungeness" name is just a reference to where the herd resides; naming that "Dungeness Valley Managed Agricultural & Wildlife Area".

That said this may be an area that has Roosevelt elk, which have heavier boned antlers than the Rocky Mountain elk subspecies.

Elk Herd

The Dungeness elk herd is in Sequim,Wa. Named after Dungeness River whitch is near by.Herd is 80-100 animals.The big controversy is between the do gooders that have moved in from California who think they are cute and want them protected and the residents that are tired of the Elk eating all there rose bushes and farm crops.The Elk spend about 10 monthes a year inside the city limits in a no shoot zone so it is a hard hunt.Permit only.I was lucky enough to get a nice 6=6 bull several years ago that scored 3043/8.B&C.These are Roosevelt Elk.
