Kentucky wildlife officials want fewer elk hunting permits

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky wildlife officials are proposing
fewer elk hunting permits for next season.
The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission's request to the
Legislature is for 800 lottery permits - down from 1000 permits
last year.
The number of permits issued for the special youth-only elk hunt
in September would remain at five.
The commission also wants changes in deer hunting zones in 25
counties and beginning the modern gun deer season on Nov. 13.
