Wisconsin DNR announces first-ever managed elk hunt
MADISON - You can add elk to the list of animals to hunt in Wisconsin.  The DNR announced Tuesday that Wisconsin will hold its first-ever managed elk hunt in 2018.

The season will open October 13 and run through November 11.  It will also run an additional nine days from Dec. 13 - 21.

The hunting area will be in Sawyer, Bayfield, Ashland, and Price counties.

The DNR has worked with a number of organizations over the last two decades to re-introduce elk into Wisconsin.

The DNR estimates the elk herd to be about 200 animals this year. Only 10 tags will be available for a bull-only hunt this fall.

Applications cost $10 and will be available online May 1st. Only Wisconsin residents can apply for a tag.
