Thought about putting in for the 2013 Kentucky Elk Lottery. Question is if you get drawn do you have to go through an outfitter or can diy hunt on public land?

You can do it yourself.You don't have to have a guide. 1000 elk tags this year,but only 10% goes to non residents

I always put in. You can take a couple of people with you to help with the hunt. They can do anything except shoot the animal. So, if you know someone that has elk hunted before you can take them along to help.

They also sell raffle tickets for a bull tag.

Yeh slim chances for a non resident firearm tag but just wanted to know what my options were.

I'd take at least somebody extra for some help but I don't know anybody who has elk hunted at all..

You would be surprised at how helpful the locals are.... 2 of my buds have had successful hunts because of strangers they met either at gas station or just on the road. Lots of the so-called outfitters just take people to the public land....there is a reason the bull hunts are 100% successful. I just wish I could get drawn.
