Burning forests have become a common summer experience across the West. While the smoke may sting residents’ eyes and plug up their lungs, recent research points out that some of these fires can actually benefit elk. A study by Missoula researchers in the Bitterroot Valley that was recently published showed that new growth following a wildland fire can be as nutritious as alfalfa. As more elk seem to be concentrating on irrigated agricultural lands for food, as well as protection from hunters, prescribed fires may be one way to spread elk on to public lands.
