NASHVILLE — The four winners selected to participate in Tennessee’s second managed elk hunt will be announced during the June meeting of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission June 16.
This month’s meeting will be held on one day rather than the regular two-day format. The June meeting will begin at 10 a.m. in the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency Region II Ray Bell Office Building.
More than 8,300 applications were received for this year’s elk hunt. The four winners of the permits were selected in a random drawing. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) was selected as this year’s non-governmental organization through an RFP process to auction the fifth permit. The auction was held at the RMEF’s annual convention. The five participants will make their way to the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area for the hunt scheduled Oct. 18-22.
