Residents wanting to participating in the historic Elk hunting season this year need to get their permits done by Sunday.
The Department of Conservation says residents at least 11 years of age or older can apply for the hunting permit.
Landowners can also apply for their own permit.
It’s been over 150 years since there was an Elk population in the state after overhunting wiped them out.
MDC began the re-introduction of Elk in 2011 by bringing in over 100 Kentucky Elk and placing them across the Ozarks.
