There is a lot of stuff that makes the Badger State what it is. Good food, some of the best cheese in the world and about as many outdoor recreational sports as people could ever want to do. But Wisconsin has some wildlife most people have no idea about, elk.
Actually, elk are native to Wisconsin, but for more than 100 years, they've been gone. That is until a project in 1995 aimed to bring back the population, and it's been doing just that, bringing dozens of elk at a time right back here to Wisconsin.
There is a good chance you've never seen an elk in Wisconsin. They had disappeared from the state completely for more than 100 years, until 1995.
