I kinda figured someone released the turtles that are in La Barge and Charlebois Springs.

As with many game species in Arizona, elk hunting has had its ups and downs. With native elk having been extirpated, the closed season imposed by the territorial legislature in 1893 was too little too late. The releases of Yellowstone elk between 1913 and 1929 were successful, however, and in 1935 the population was deemed sufficient to support a limited, 266-permit bull hunt. source AZFGD
extirpation, is the condition of a species (or other taxon) which ceases to exist in the chosen geographic area of study, though it still exists elsewhere

I have never seen elk in the Pinalenos, but it is my understanding that the western slopes has a herd of 50+ now and last year several were seen up on top at Riggs Flat lake. Also, G&F has been issuing out elk hunt permits for unit 31 (Pinalenos) for several years now.
