Grand Teton Elk Hunt Begins Saturday
(JACKSON, Wyo.) – Hunting season in Grand Teton National Park begins Saturday. Park officials say tags for the animals are being made available to applicants with Wyoming hunting licenses. Grand Teton is normally off limits to hunting, but surplus elk herds have prompted authorities to implement reduction quotas in two areas of the park. Non-hunting visitors are being encouraged to stay in areas west of the Snake River, away from designated hunting zones.
