A list of hunters drawn for the late season quota elk hunt on private land is now posted online at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources' Web site at fw.ky.gov. The hunt opens Jan. 23, 2010 and closes Feb. 5. Drawn hunters also will be notified by mail.

Each hunter is randomly drawn from the pool of those who applied for the regular quota elk hunts. Hunters must reside in the 16-county elk restoration zone to be eligible for this hunt.

"The purpose of this hunt is to target elk hunting in areas where nuisance elk complaints have historically occurred," said Tina Brunjes, big game program coordinator for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife.

"Hunters who check the list online can follow links to maps that show the two Elk Management Units (EMUs) open for this hunt: Stoney Fork EMU and Knott County EMU," said Brunjes. "Only private lands are open for this hunt. All public land within these EMUs is closed to elk hunting."

Hunters drawn for the 25 tags will have the choice this year of hunting Stoney Fork EMU or Knott County EMU rather than being limited to just one of these units. The tags for this hunt cost $30 for Kentucky residents, the same as for the regular elk quota hunts. Hunters must also possess an annual Kentucky hunting license.
