Kentucky Elk Permit up for auction on ebay!

How badly do you want an Elk Hunting Permit?

Kentucky, like Tennessee, allows the use of one elk permit per year to be used for fundraising efforts for qualifying conservation organizations.

This year the League of Kentucky Sportmans is auctioning a Kentucky Commission Elk Tag and guided hunt on ebay. The starting price was $5,000 and as of this writing, the bid is up to $7,900.

The hunt includes the services of one of Kentucky’s most successful elk guides, Lost Mountain Outfitters ( This guide’s success rate is 100% for the last 60 elk taken, 25 of those were bulls scoring over 300”. The hunt package includes up to seven days of 1x1 guide service, elk camp accommodations, meal, game recovery and complete transportation in the field while hunting. The lucky bidder can even bring a non-hunting friend.

The money raised will be used for purchase of public hunting lands and habitat improvement. Bidding ends Sunday, June 12th.

Kentucky boasts the largest elk herd east of the Mississippi. This tag allows the hunter access to all Elk Hunt Units in Kentucky as well as the choice of archery or gun hunt… based on seasons determined by the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources.

A Kentucky Commissioner Bull Elk Tag allows the lucky bidder to hunt the entire Elk Season without restriction of date or Elk Hunt Unit.
