Elk populations were decimated during the expansion on the West in the 19th Century, but due to wide-scale reintroduction and conservation programs their populations have been brought back. In the Northwest we have two sub-species, on the West-side of the Cascades we have the Roosevelt Elk, and on East-side, the Rocky Mountain Elk.
