Minnesota Elk Co.
Minnesota Elk Company encompasses about 100 acres of fenced pasture and has been designed to accomodate, primarily, a bull herd. The ranch itself overlooks the legendary Heron Lake Watershed which is famous for its waterfowl hunting. The sunset view of elk grazing the west facing slope as ducks, geese, pheasants and wild deer move around the ranch is breath-taking. Reaching the ranch is very easy as we are located only a few blocks off Highway 60 south of Windom, MN 5 miles in a small village called Wilder. Minnesota Elk Company specializes in velvet antler harvest and marketing. The handling facilities at Minnesota Elk Company are built with the velvet industry in mind. We have a walk-in freezer with immediate access from a very sanitary antler removal area. This facility is custom-built with safe, efficient animal handling techniques incorporated. Minnesota Elk Co. is the place to call when you are looking for velvet or excellent tropy bulls.
