Deadline Nears to Get in Quota Elk Hunt Drawing
Application for the two quota elk hunts this fall at the Addington Wildlife Management Area (WMA) near Hazard, Kentucky can still be made until May 31, 2003. The quota bull elk hunt is October 4-10, 2003 and the quota cow elk hunt is December 6-12, 2003.
The $10 permit to be placed in the drawing to hunt may be purchased anywhere hunting and fishing licenses are sold, over the internet at fw.ky.gov, or by calling 1-877-598-2401. No hunting license is required at the time of purchase, but a drawn hunter must possess a Kentucky hunting license at the time of the hunt.
Residents and non-residents are welcome to apply, but up to one non-resident only may be drawn. Four bull and six cow elk permits will be awarded by random drawing at the Elk Festival in Hazard, Kentucky on July 26, 2003. Hunters may apply at the Elk Festival prior to the drawing.
Kentucky’s elk herd is over 2,500 strong and chances for a successful hunt for a drawn hunter is extremely high. A hunter may only apply one time.
