Hunters are responsible for reading the National Elk Refuge hunting information and regulations specific to the hunt area where they are permitted and have them available while hunting on the refuge. It can be difficult to distinguish between a one to two year-old bull and a mature cow. A bison identification exam is available online and is a
suggested tool to help hunters differentiate between bulls and cows.
