Applications for Kentucky’s 2010 elk hunt lottery went on sale today. Applications cost $10, and give the purchaser a chance to win a bull or cow elk tag. Applications are available online only.

You may apply by logging onto the homepage of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and clicking on the yellow Buy Licenses Here box on the right side of the page. If you wish to purchase a chance for someone on your Christmas shopping list, you will need that person’s social security number.

Kentucky Fish and Wildlife issued 750 cow elk tags and 250 bull elk tags for the regular 2009 lottery quota hunts. More than 46,000 people applied for the 2009 hunts.

Youth hunters 15 years old and younger may apply for the 2010 youth-only elk hunt at Paul Van Booven Wildlife Management Area. Youth may apply for the regular quota elk hunts and the youth-only hunt, but each application costs $10.

You can only apply one time (except those youth applying for the youth-only and regular elk quota hunts). The lottery is open to Kentucky residents and non-residents. The deadline to apply is April 30. The drawing will be conducted in May.

Eighty-seven percent of those drawn for the 2009 bull elk hunt successfully harvested a bull elk during the current season.

I’ve made my annual donation, I think it’s my lucky year!

    • Jerry,
      Please, post the result of your phone call here. Did you use the link provided in this article? This is the correct link as my hunting companions and other subscribers had no issues with this link earlier. But, we didn’t wait until the last minute, as sometimes Murphy’s Law kicks in.

      You will want to call soon as they are drawing the winners on Wednesday (5th) and should have the results posted on Friday (7th).
