Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

Public Law 787 (81st Congress) created an enlarged Grand Teton National Park which includes within its boundaries most of the Jackson Hole National Monument. The Act further provided for a joint study by technical and administrative personnel of the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission and the National Park Service of that portion of the Jackson Hole elk herd which would be affected by the creation of the enlarged park. Sec. 6 (a) of the Act follows, "The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission and the National Park Service shall devise from technical information and other pertinent data assembled or produced by necessary field studies or investigations conducted jointly by the technical and administrative personnel of the agencies involved, and recommend to the Secretary of the Interior and the Governor of Wyoming for their joint approval a program to insure the permanent conservation of the elk within the Grand Teton National Park established by this Act. Such program shall include the controlled reduction of elk in such park by hunters licenses by the State of Wyoming and deputized as rangers by the Secretary of the Interior, when it is found necessary for the proper management and protection of the elk."

This report is in effect, a compilation of the data collected by the field technicians of the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission who conducted studies with National Park Service officials. The report includes (1) an introduction outlining briefly facts considered important to the solution of the elk management problems; (2) results of the joint elk migration study; (3) elk kill records pertinent to the problem; (4) a concise summary of available information and (5) recommendations for consideration of administrative officials of the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission and the National Park Service.
