This research is a continuation of previous investigations (Projects 11) on the social behavior of Cervus canadensis nelsoni, the Wapiti. Sociometric studies on wild animals are still in their early phases and, in general, do not yet permit as clearcut a knowledge of the patterns of social rank, attraction and repulsion as is true for species more accessible than elk. In a long range study an attempt was made to analyze the social patterns observed in groups of Wapiti of the Jackson Hole herd of Wyoming. Project Number 71.
