Hearings being put together on Elk ExpansionSubmitted: 08/13/2013
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Hearings should be set up soon on establishing another elk herd in Wisconsin.

The state's only elk herd currently roams the Clam Lake area.

The Department of Natural Resources wants to create a second herd near Black River Falls.

The DNR wants to use elk from Kentucky to create the new herd.

They would also expand the Clam Lake herd.

They hope to import the first 50 animals in 2015.

The DNR drafted regulations that would establish a management zone for the new herd.

The population goal would be 390 animals.

The regulations would set the opening day for an elk season on October 15th, once the herd is big enough.

The state natural resources board is expected to authorize public hearings at a meeting tomorrow in Baraboo.

PEARSON - People from Wisconsin camp all the time, but it's not every day a group of British Boy Scouts comes to camp in the Northwoods for a week. 

"As a group, we've never been to the United States of America before, " said Troop Leader Stephen Bell.

Bell can cross that off his list. He's one of 11 British Boy Scouts and leaders staying at Camp Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan this week.

"We were looking for somewhere to extend the stay, so after a Google search, this site appeared to be the best one in the local area, so we headed up here for the rest of our time in the US," said Bell.

The 1st Carlton Colville Air Scouts come from the eastern coast of England in Lowestoft, about three and a half hours from London.

After spending time at the EAA event in Oshkosh, the troop came to Pearson for the week. It cost more than $30,000 and two years to make the trip happen. 

"I'm certainly not disappointed having arrived," said Bell.

Now that they're here, scouts say there are many differences from home.
