Wisconsin elk tags issued

MADISON, Wis. — After a 30-day application period, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources conducted a random drawing for four residents who will have the opportunity to participate in the 2019 elk hunting season.

More than 23,000 Wisconsin residents entered the drawing for one of four once-in-a-lifetime elk tags. The winners were from the cities of Cameron, Cumberland, Grand View and Medford. A fifth license went to a Hazel Green resident through a raffle conducted by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

The season will occur only in the Clam Lake elk range in parts of Sawyer, Bayfield, Ashland and Price counties.
