Eastern Elk: Kentucky doubles its number of hunting permits

Who says you have to travel to the West to bag an elk? Since wapiti were first reintroduced to Kentucky in 1997, the state’s herd has grown to approximately 5,700 animals, representing the largest elk herd in the east. And the number of permits offered to hunters has likewise grown, from 12 in 2001 to 100 in 2005. Now, with the elk herd still in a growth phase, wildlife officials are doubling last year’s number, to 200. But you’ll have to act very fast, as the application deadline is today.
