You can now watch elk on the ground in Tennessee from your own cellphone or home computer anywhere around the country. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency installed a new camera that shows a live stream elk at the popular Hatfield Knob Elk Viewing Tower on Hatfield Mountain.
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s Habitat Council visited Hatfield Knob in June of 2013. The meadow and viewing tower are a labor of love by Terry and Jane Lewis, both RMEF volunteers, who live on a nearby farm. They poured a great deal of sweat equity and financial sacrifice into the project by designing and purchasing building materials for the tower in 2005. Five years earlier, they wrapped up three years of weekend work to clear thick trees and vegetation from more than 40 acres of reclaimed mine land. They also planted wildlife food plots.
