From the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency
-- The final permit for participation in Tennessees third managed elk hunt will go to the successful bidder in an eBay auction from July 14 to 23. Proceeds from the auction benefit the states elk restoration program.
The successful bidder will participate in the hunt along with four other winners of the June drawing.
Tennessee's 2011 elk hunt runs from Oct. 17 to 21 at the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area which is divided into five elk hunting zones. Each hunter will be designated a zone following a drawing at a later date at a Region IV location.
All proceeds from the sale of the remaining special bull elk tag go exclusively to the elk restoration program. TWRF is partnering with Bill Swan, an active member of the Chattanooga Chapter of Safari Club International, on the promotion and sale of the last elk tag.
More information concerning the hunt will be listed in the eBay auction. Enter Tennessee Elk Permit on the eBay search to locate the listing.
