ELK HUNT AUCTION
The fifth permit for participation in Tennessee’s sixth managed elk hunt
will be awarded to the successful bidder in an eBay auction now underway
through July 27. Proceeds from the auction benefit the state’s elk
Since the elk hunt was implemented in 2009, the Tennessee Wildlife
Resources Agency has donated a permit to a Non-Governmental Organization
to join four others who will be chosen from a computer drawing. The
Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation is the recipient of this year’s
donated special take permit.
The TWRF will award its permit to the successful high bidder through the
eBay auction. The successful bidder will be a participant in the hunt
along with four others who will be selected in a random computer draw
later this summer. Applications for the four permits for the elk hunt must
be submitted by midnight (CDT) on July 27.
The hunt will be held Oct. 20-24 at the North Cumberland Wildlife
Management Area. The North Cumberland WMA will be divided into five elk
hunting zones (EHZ). Each hunter will be designated an EHZ in a drawing to
be conducted at a later date at a TWRA Region IV location.
All proceeds from the sale of the remaining special bull elk tag will go
exclusively to the elk restoration program. The TWRF is partnering with
Bill Swan, an active member of the Chattanooga Chapter of Safari Club
International, on the promotion and sale of the elk tag.
The auction will end at 9:30 p.m. (CDT) on July 27. Search Tennessee Elk
