Cataloochee is famous for the elk herds that have been reestablished in the park. After being hunted to extinction in Tennessee and North Carolina in the 1800's, these magnificent animals were brought back from Land Between the Lakes in west TN in 2001. The herd is up to 109 animals as of Oct. 2009. It is amazing to come to the park from September to mid-October to hear the bulls bugle and defend their harem of cows from rival bulls.
