Ontario and its partners have restored the elk population to the province.
The once endangered elk has made a come back and the elk population continues to grow at a healthy rate in the Bancroft region since being reintroduced ten years ago.
The Bancroft elk population is even healthy enough to support the first elk hunt in more than a century this upcoming September. The hunt will help manage the population in this area, and will be carefully harmonized to continue to ensure a long-term sustainable elk population.
This is part of the government's Open Ontario plan  to support the region's economy and environment.
