The emphasis of this study was placed on determining the influences of various silvicultural practices (i.e. thinning, fertilization) on Roosevelt elk habitat utilization. Individuals in areas differing in silvicultural treatment were immobilized and neckfitted with radio collars. Daily monitoring of movements and habitat utilization of radio collared elk illustrated the influences of forestry activities on home range, migratory patterns and habitat selection.
