The Missouri Department of Conservation has reported it has selected the five hunters who will take part in the year’s elk hunting season. The hunters’ names selected by a drawing by the Conservation Department include a Miller County man–Tyson Wall of Iberia, who will receive an antlered-elk hunting permit. Michael Duncan of Lesterville was selected from the resident-landowner applications. Michael Ellison of Gainesville, Robert Rothermich of Pomona, and Chris Irick of Pleasant Hope will be awarded an antler-eld hunting permit as well.
The names were randomly drawn from 9,714 permit applications, including one drawn from 84 resident-landowners who applied.
