Elk colonized Wisconsin post glaciation, along with native peoples. They coexisted until European settlement, then due to overexploitation, elk disappeared from WI. In 1995 a study was initiated to investigate the feasibility to restore elk to Wisconsin. Since the release of 25 elk in 1995, Wisconsin has learned a great deal about elk and have formulated management to establish a sustainable elk presence in Wisconsin.
