Wisconsin to hold first ever elk hunt this year

Posted: Updated:
Clam Lake, WI -

Wisconsin will have its first elk hunt in state history this year. 

The DNR says limited tags will be available after 22 years of managing the elk population.

Officials say the planned hunt will take place in Sawyer, Bayfield, Ashland, and Price counties, and will only be open to Wisconsin residents.

DNR officials also say the elk involved in the hunt will only be animals born in the state, and not include any elk released into the state from Kentucky. 

Only bull elk will be harvested.
