The City of Gaylord maintains an elk herd and provides viewing areas for the public to stop and watch the impressive herd.  Under the city's care the roughly 40 elk can be viewed from near the Elk's Lodge off Grandview at Elk View Park.

The herd is contained on 108 acres.  City staff feed the animals corn, hay and sugar beets, plus vitamins.  The herd started with three elk when a local nature center closed in the late 1980s.

Currently, a few of the bulls weigh well over 800 pounds and stand roughly 6' tall. The bulls will don their massive horns during the fall and winter, dropping them in the spring.
