    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to let everyone know that might be interested. Our N. Ky. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited has been awarded a Bull Elk Tag by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission for the 2011 season. Commonly know as a Commissioner's Tag and is good for any zone and any legal weapon.

    Our QU Chapter is going to raffle this tag which includes a shoulder mount. The only thing required is a resident or non-resident hunting license if you should win. A non-resident hunting license is $130.00 The non-resident elk permit fee ($365.00) has been waived. Tickets are being sold now and all proceeds will be used to further our conservation projects. There will be only 200 tickets sold and they are $100.00 per ticket. You can email or PM me if interested. Also, go to QU's website at www.qu.org for verification if you would like. We did that so people would know that this is a legitimate project.

    More information is there and it is currently the 8th item down on QU's home page. Drawing will be no later than April 30 and sooner if all tickets are sold. Each person purchasing a ticket will be notified of the date, time and location of the drawing in the event they would like to attend. They will also be notified of the name, city and state of the winner. The winner will be notified by registered mail.

    Good hunting to all, Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited, aka Oletrapper

    Since I got in on the 2010 bull elk firearms lotto and am blocked from drawing, would I be able to hunt using that tag should I win? Here's my 2010 bull I finally got on the wall.

    Stalkingbear, Just sent you a PM. To answer your question, yes, you can enter and if you should win you can hunt. That only applies to the Ky Elk Lottery draw.

    Just wondering my family's got some property in Butler county, do you guys think that the KY herd could ever spread that far west???

    Herd moving west.

    Great question Mossy, According to everything I have been told, the Department of Fish and Wildlife is committed to containing the herd in the 16000 acre restoration zone. They have been issuing land owner tags recently to hold true to that commitment.

    Thank you!

    Just want to say thank you to FirearmsTalk and all those who have helped us make our fund raiser a great success. Good luck to all in the draw

    Our raffle is winding down and Internet sales will end on April 21. because of mail delivery time. If we should happen to receive a check after the draw date, we will mark it void and return it to the entrant. There are tickets still available so if you want to participate, you need to hurry.

    Thanks again,

    Update on our elk tag raffle.

    Hello everyone, Just wanted to let everyone know how our Elk Tag Raffle went. Thanks to many that visit this site, our raffle was a great success.

    Many thanks go out to FireArmsTalk.com for allowing our post.

    The winner of the raffle was Mark Tucker of Brooksville, KY. I called Mark when his ticket was pulled and he could not have been more excited. He told me he had tried for many years to save up money for a western elk hunting trip but every time he got close, something happened at home and had to use the money and he could not make the trip. Well, now he can go and not have to leave home. At least not very far from home.

    Below, I have posted the financial report which was submitted to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. Again, thanks to all who helped us make this fundraiser a great success.
