The Missouri Department of Conservation will issue one permit to each of the five Missourians. They were randomly drawn from 9,714 permit applications, including one drawn from 84 resident-landowners who applied.

Each of the five can buy their elk-hunting permit starting on July 1 for $50.

They can each harvest one bull elk that has at least one antler being a minimum of 6 inches long.

The hunters may use archery methods October 16-24 and firearms methods December 11-19.

Each permit is valid for both the archery and firearms portions of the elk-hunting season. The five permits may be used in Carter, Reynolds or Shannon Counties except the refuge portion of Peck Ranch.
