Friday, April 30, is the official deadline to apply for Kentucky’s 2010 elk hunt.

Thousands of hunters across the U.S. are expected to register in the next couple days due to the 90 percent success rate among bull elk hunters, and an inexpensive $10 application fee. The state is expected to issue 800 quota hunt permits this year.

Kentucky’s elk herd is the result of a restoration program that took place between 1997 and 2002. Today, the herd numbers approximately 10,000.

Applications are only accepted online through the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources website. The drawing is open to both residents and non-residents.
