Just like the way people were with bison in Yellowstone, unfortunately it takes a serious accident to get the attention of most tourons.
When you go to Cataloochee to fish, you see elk. When you see elk on trail, you invade elk's space. When you invade elk's space, elk thinks you are taking his harem. When you take elk's harem, elk gets angry. When elk gets angry, he breaks your fly rod and urinates on your fly box. Don't have your fly rod broken or your flies urinated on.... Go somewhere other than Cataloochee to fish!
That way I can have that beautiful place all to myself.
