Application Deadlines for Elk
Elk Applications period is 4 Jan-1 Feb. Hunt areas are: 79 and 75, Results of the draw are 5/20. We recommend that you apply for a Grand Teton National Park hunt area 75-4 or a 75-6 type six Elk license. That way we can hunt in both the National Elk Refuge and Grand Teton National Park.
Elk Hunting in the National Elk Refuge
The starting point for hunting elk on the National Elk Refuge is obtaining a valid Wyoming elk hunting license through the Wyoming Game & Fish Department. Once hunters have a valid license, they are eligible to apply for an elk hunting permit on the refuge (Hunt Area 77).
The permission slip for the National Elk Refuge allows the hunter to use a valid elk license from any other Hunt Unit in the state of Wyoming within the National Elk Refuge. There have been leftover area 75 tags that you can buy over the counter in July if you miss the drawing deadline in January. We can assist you in getting your permission slip.
The National Elk Refuge, Elk Hunting Information and Regulations four-page handout thoroughly explains the refuge permit application process, along with general elk hunting information, special regulations, access and travel while hunting, and retrieval of harvested animals. Click HERE to download.
Elk hunters should also remember that permit holders with three valid Wyoming elk hunting licenses may use and fill three licenses while hunting on the refuge. Elk hunters attempting to fill their valid licenses during the same hunt period do not need to apply for three refuge permits. National Elk Refuge Elk Hunting »
