Elk hunting could become legal in OK

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla_First wild pigs...now elk? If state officials have their way it may soon be legal to hunt elk in Oklahoma. 

Apparently the elk population has exploded, particularly in the Wichita Mountains, and that is why the Wildlife Conservation Department is considering a proposal to make elk hunting legal during deer hunting season. 

Many farmers are already on board. They say the elk are eating up high value crops like soybeans, wheat and corn. and they are causing a lot of damage to their properties


The Wildlife Conservation Department is taking public comment on this. You can let them know what you think through their website. They are also going to have a public meeting on January 8th.
