The deadline to apply for Kentucky's hunt of a lifetime is fast approaching.
Hunters have until midnight, Monday, April 30 to apply for a Kentucky elk hunt. The quota hunt drawing for an elk permit is open to residents and non-residents.
Kentucky will issue 900 general quota hunt permits this year, an increase of 100 permits over the 2011 season. Kentucky's elk herd is expected to surpass 10,000 animals by fall.
