Abstract or Summary
  • Landscape models for elk distribution developed at Starkey Experimental Forest and Range from 1993-1995 were tested on another landscape during 2003-2005 at Sled Springs Wildlife Demonstration Area. Using location data obtained from 23 wild elk captured and fitted with GPS telemetry collars, 8 spatial resource selection function models representing 8 periods spring through fall were evaluated. Recently published statistical and non-statistical validation methods were used to score models using a priori performance criteria. Results showed that 1-month models for early spring, late summer and early autumn scored high, mid-summer models scored medium low and a late fall model scored low. Two 2-month models representing early/late spring and late summer/early autumn scored high. Discussion focuses on understanding both high and low scoring models and recommendations for refinement. Suitability of these spatial models to management planning is also discussed.
