Wisconsin elk draw open
It was a few days ago, if you didn't hear anything you did not draw............
when is the draw?
NRB voted against the DNR's recommendation for the 6 bull quota. It will be 10 bulls this year, the same as the past.
Just my opinion, but I think based on sound science and fact...
We’ll never an elk hunt with anything like out West or even Kentucky numbers. Keeping it real, it’ll be, at best, like Minnesota’s moose hunt used to be. A once in a lifetime novelty hunt, but able to sustain itself.
I am happy to give my $10 to the continuing elk restoration project and the RMEF raffle opportunity. I'm also glad to see the DNR is not allowing 10 bulls to be harvested this year if the herd cannot support. I hope this hunt continues for the foreseeable future!
The truth is conservation is hard and expensive. I'm sure everyone has their pet project they would love to see the DNR spend money on. Applying for the tag is cheap-10 bucks- big deal for almost no one. If we can funnel the money in to expanding the elk herd the opportunity's should increase.
Not sure I would have applied this year if I would have know there was only two tags available... oh well only $10. Personally, I would rather see the DNR spend their time and money on improving the species that are already established here. Could have bought some nice pieces of land to make public in southern WI with the millions they spent on elk...
I'm glad to see people have applied and hopefully more do in the future. That money will inject some much needed capitol into the elk project and who knows we could very well see the tags and herd increase. All hunters should consider this an excellent opportunity. I would love to draw a tag!
Read up on the people who have gotten tags and been successful, its pretty much been said numerous times that they all met with locals, did the leg work to find where the elk are. The DNR also points you in the right direction.
Personally I have seen elk many times when going through the area. A number of bulls too, only one that was big though. Early hours were the most sightings. That was without looking for them.
As far as the hunt itself, it never seems like it will get much beyond this. Look at how many years the elk have been there, not exactly taking off. They tried this same experiment years ago and it failed. Not saying this will fail, but its not what they were hoping for I'm sure.
