ELK HUNTING OUTSIDE THE ELK ZONE

0 Comments




Elk may be taken from any county
outside the zone by hunters who possess
an annual Kentucky hunting license and
an Out-of-Zone Elk Permit. These hunters
must follow deer season regulations

and use only the legal elk hunting equipment
outlined page 2, but are not required
to possess a Statewide Deer Permit.
CHECKING and TAGGING
All elk must be telechecked. Hunters
must call 1-800-245-4263 and report
the harvest. See the “General Information”
section for details.
Once an elk is harvested, a hunter
may remove the head of the animal to
facilitate its removal from the field prior
to the elk being telechecked. It is still
necessary to fill out the harvest log immediately
after harvest and telecheck the
animal before midnight on the day the
elk is harvested or recovered. If the hide
or head of the elk is removed in the field
– to quarter the animal, for example – it
is now necessary to demonstrate proof of
sex by retaining the head or keeping the
genitalia attached to the carcass.
A carcass tag is required if a harvested
elk leaves the hunter’s possession
for any reason.
VOUCHER COOPERATOR ELK
PERMIT PROGRAM
A recently developed access program
by the Kentucky Department of
Fish and Wildlife Resources has created
additional elk hunting opportunity for
drawn elk hunters.




The Voucher Cooperator Elk Permit
Program links people who own or
lease elk hunting land with hunters who
have drawn an elk tag. Hunter access is
accomplished by offering landowners/
lessees an elk tag when they accumulate
20 points (harvested bull = 2 points,
harvested cow = 1 point). Hunters will
sign up to hunt voucher properties on a
first come, first served basis through an
online system after the area drawing is
complete.
Interested landowners and lessees
may contact Kentucky Fish and Wildlife
at 1-800-858-1549 to learn more
about the Voucher Cooperator Elk Permit Program
