MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin wildlife officials are urging deer hunters to keep an eye out for elk and moose.
Elk now occupy parts of Ashland, Bayfield, Price and Sawyer counties. Moose have been sighted in the state's northern counties as well. Department of Natural Resources officials say they wandered into the state from northern Minnesota and Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Both species are protected in Wisconsin. DNR big game ecologist Kevin Wallenfang says hunters should concentrate on identifying their target and what lies beyond it.
