Second Elk Application Deadline Approaching
Hunters who do not have a 2006 elk license and who are interested in applying for one of the remaining leftover licenses have only a few days before the application deadline.
The postmark deadline for paper applications in the second drawing for elk licenses is Friday, June 16. Individuals applying online have until 8:00 a.m. (CDT) on Tuesday, June 20.
Anyone who does not already have a 2006 elk license for any season, whether or not they held a license in a previous year, is eligible to apply for a leftover license. Drawing one of these leftover licenses does not affect eligibility or preference in a future first drawing for elk licenses.
