From WI DNR:



The planned hunt is within the Clam Lake elk range of Sawyer, Bayfield, Ashland, and Price counties in far north-central Wisconsin. Original restoration efforts occurred within this range with the release of 25 elk from Michigan in 1995. This northern herd is projected to reach a population level of over 200 animals this year, including a high proportion of bulls. Check out this helpful Facebook Live session with DNR big game ecologist Kevin Wallenfang to learn more.

Ten tags will be made available for a bull-only hunt in Fall 2018. Four tags will be awarded to Wisconsin residents through a random drawing. One additional tag will be awarded to a Wisconsin resident through a raffle conducted by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Consistent with federal court rulings, the elk harvest quota is being shared equitably with the six Wisconsin Chippewa tribes.

Only Wisconsin residents are eligible to purchase an elk tag. The application fee is $10 and applications will be available starting May 1 through the Go WILD system at GoWild.wi.gov. Prior to receiving their carcass tag, all drawing winners will be required to complete an elk hunter education course prior to the start of the season.

The elk harvest quota for 2018 was determined by the departmentís Elk Advisory Committee, which, in addition to DNR biologists and researchers, includes representation from Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation; Wisconsin Wildlife Federation; Jackson County Forest and Parks; Wisconsin Conservation Congress; U.S. Forest Service; Wisconsin Bowhunters Association; Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission; U.W. Stevens Point, and Ho-Chunk Nation.

Those interested in purchasing raffle tickets may do so at RMEF.org/Wisconsin.

Wisconsinís inaugural elk hunting season will adhere to the following guidelines:
season will be open from October 13 to November 11, 2018 and December 13-21, 2018;
only bull elk may be harvested;
Areas where Kentucky elk were released between 2015-2017 will be off limits to hunting until the population increases to levels identified in the elk management plan;
only Wisconsin residents are eligible to receive a harvest tag; and
harvest tags may be transferred to a Wisconsin resident youth hunter 17 years or younger.

Rumors are that local landowners WTH elk bedding on their property will be asking $10-15k to hunt.

I keep desperately hoping that one day someone will call me "Sir" without adding "please calm down" or "you're causing a scene."

Good to see a season as that will make much of the general disgust disappear. Wow huge private property fees to hunt! Who would have thought? not Now some of that jack pine land in Jackson Co with all the sand and hard pan may have some really high value in the future and it won't be for fracking either.

Now the discussion pro, con etc. It is like the scene from the Trilogy when the king on the high place of the castle looks over the huge plain with hundreds of thousands of Orks and his comment in a very somber voice is "and so it begins"

How many tags did the chippewa tribe get last yr? I'm just curious as to why they get 50% of the tags.

Tribes will get 5 tags, Wisconsin residents get 5. I don't think there were any tags given out last year, but if I remember right they shot one "ceremonially". Pretty soon I'll be hunting elk, trapping wolves and looking over my shoulder for mountain lions, feeling like a westerner!

The Natives will probably sell the tags like they do out west.

That's not really true. They used to be able to shoot moose on the rez. But, they chased a moose out of Powell Marsh onto the rez a few years ago and killed it.

The tribe wasn't happy about it. If I remember correctly, the tribe changed to rules so they can no longer shoot moose on the rez either.
