Auction for remaining Permit in 2011 Elk Hunt extended through Sunday, July 24th

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - TWRANashville, TN – The auction for the final permit in Tennessee’s third managed elk hunt has been extended through midnight (CDT) on Sunday, July 24th.

The final permit will go to the successful high bidder in the eBay auction which is being conducted by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation (TWRF). Proceeds from the auction benefit the state’s elk restoration program.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) again donated a permit to a Non-Governmental Organization to join four others who were selected from a computer drawing. The TWRF was the recipient of this year’s donated special take permit.

The successful bidder will participate in the hunt along with Richard R. Rutherford of Walland, Terrell S. Holt of Columbia, John Mark Alston of Knoxville, and Jody A. Moore of Loudon who were announced as winners of the drawing during the June meeting of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission.

The 2011 Tennessee Elk Hunt will be held Monday, October 17th through Friday, October 21st at the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area in East Tennessee. 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.

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 (SCI), on the promotion and sale of the last elk tag.

More information concerning the hunt will be listed in the EBay auction. Search “Tennessee Elk Permit” on eBay to find the listing.

TWRF is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting habitat conservation, an ethic of land stewardship, and Tennessee’s hunting and fishing heritage for the benefit of TWRA and Tennessee’s outdoor enthusiasts.
