Winning Elk Hunt Bid

 

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency

 

Nashville, Tenn. (AP) – Andy Miller is going elk hunting and he’d best be a good shot. The privilege to take part in Tennessee’s first elk hunt in more than 150 years is costing him $17,700.

Miller, of Franklin, was the successful bidder for a Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency permit sold on eBay.

Four other permits for the Oct. 19-23 hunt were awarded in an earlier random computer drawing from nearly 13,000 applications.

The spot Miller claimed was donated to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation, which promotes wildlife habitat conservation. The group put the permit on the Internet auction site to raise funds.

The hunt will take place on private land near the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area.
