Edwards County History

Edwards County, located in southwestern Texas, is known for its rugged terrain, diverse wildlife, and rich history. The county seat, Rocksprings, was established in 1891 and is famous for its spring waters and limestone rocks. The economy of the region historically centered around sheep and goat ranching, but in recent years, hunting and outdoor recreation have become significant contributors. Rocksprings, a small community with a strong sense of heritage, offers a glimpse into rural Texas life with its historic buildings, annual rodeos, and local festivals. The county’s scenic landscapes and natural resources make it a popular destination for tourists seeking outdoor adventures.

Elk in Edwards County?

Elk in Texas have a complex history. Originally native to the state, elk were found across various regions before European settlement. Historical evidence such as eyewitness accounts, archaeological findings, and place names suggest that elk were widespread throughout Texas. However, due to extensive hunting and diseases from domestic animals, elk populations were eradicated by the early 1900s.

In the 1920s, efforts to reintroduce elk began, spearheaded by private landowners and supported by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD). By the 1960s, these efforts saw success with elk thriving once again in certain areas. Despite their reintroduction, elk were reclassified as non-game or exotic species in 1997 due to concerns about their impact on other wildlife like bighorn sheep.

Today, elk are considered exotic animals in Texas and can be hunted year-round on private lands without bag limits, provided hunters have a valid license. The TPWD supports these management practices to ensure balanced wildlife conservation and sustainable hunting opportunities.  Per James Bigley, Elk run free range in Edwards County like other counties in Texas, go here for more information – LINK (James Bigley Ranches)​​ (James Bigley Ranches)​​ (James Bigley Ranches)
