(Neb.)- Nebraska Hunters Bag Record Number Of Bull Elk

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 11/19/2012 06:40 AM

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska hunters bagged a record 105 bull elk this fall.
 
     The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says 91 percent of hunters with valid permits for the hunt shot a bull - also a record.
 
     That compares with 90 bulls harvested and a 79 percent success rate last year.
 
     Bull elk season ended in Nebraska on Oct. 28. Thirty-one elk cows were harvested in the first half of the cow elk season, which ran from Sept. 29-Oct. 28. That season resumes Dec. 1 through Dec. 31.
 
     The commission is reminding successful elk hunters to send in elk tooth collection envelopes to Nebraska Game and Parks.
