Feeding some 590 elk for the winter

Bryon Lozier feeds elk for the Wyoming Game & Fish at the Soda Lake Feedground just north of Pinedale. At this time he is feeding approximately 590 elk. Snow forces the elk to leave the high country to find food. The elk feedgrounds in the county feed more than 6,000 animals each winter.

The elk stay near the feedground during the winter because it makes finding food easy.

Eating hay
Feeding elk hay at designated feedgrounds keeps them from moving onto rancher's fields and getting into their haystacks looking for food.
