Arkansas grants elk permits

Posted: Updated:

JASPER, Ark. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Arkansas game officials say 25 hunters have won the right to hunt elk this fall.

The season has two segments - October 7th through 11th and October 28th through November 1st.

Five hunting permits were granted for the early session and 22 were granted for the late one.

Issuing the permits was dubbed as the highlight of the Buffalo River Elk Festival.

Elk hunting on private land is restricted to one zone, consisting of all private land in Boone, Carroll, Madison, Newton and Searcy counties except for a portion of Boxley Valley.

The hunt will end the evening of November 1st or whenever the elk quota of eight bulls and 20 antlerless is met.
