It appears that a complaint has been filed and ethics infractions may have occurred surrounding the awarding of rare Kentucky Elk hunting permits.

Lawmakers had questioned why the nine-member commission that oversees Fish and Wildlife decided to award three elk hunting permits to a non-profit group with ties to current and former commissioners when state regulations appear to say a non-profit may receive only one elk hunting permit.
