    Kentucky Elk Hunt

    Application window is closed. Intel says they had 61,000 applications for around 1,000 tags. Latest herd estimate is just over 10,000 animals. Pretty healthy herd here in the bluegrass state.

    Maybe I'll be lucky; put in for both gun and bow.

    Browntail, you can thank the State of Kentucky and the RMEF for that, they're doing great...no wolves either!

    It's pretty amazing what Kentucky and the RMEF has done there, considering they started with less than 10 animals, less than 20 years ago. I hope my state takes a few pointers from them as we reintroduce elk back into southern Missouri.

    Yeah, I saw that a little while back. Next thing you know, we'll have wolves down here too..

    I put in for bow and gun, but not holding my breath. How is the deer population in the areas that have a good elk herd?

    Is this a DIY hunt on public ground or is it a guide hunt?

    It can be either a DIY or guided. Most of the Elk are on public land. They really grow some monsters down there. Mild winters + Corn/Beans + no predators = Real big bulls.
