Elk in West Virginia

I know it's not technically hunting, but if no one heard.
REMF has re-introduced elk in West Virginia. Kudos to them!

This is one organization that i don't mind donating my hard earned money towards.

I think you can hunt the elk now that they reintroduced in Kentucky, right? Would be a very different experience than going out west. Seems pretty cool.

There are at least a couple of eastern states where it is technically possible to hunt elk now. The problem is getting a tag. They don't issue many and it is still possible to buy them over the counter in most of Colorado.

There is a good population in parts of SMNP. Mostly on the NC side of the park. Not huntable, but I've made an effort to view them on several occasions. Worth the trip.

There is a pretty large population of them there. Recently when in Cherokee, one came walking down the street through town like he was about to go shopping.
