JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Six hunters have been selected to hunt elk this year in Tennessee.
According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, more than 9,500 people applied for this year's hunt. The four adult hunters selected through a computer drawing are Clay Oldham of Hartsville, Audie Lee Schrimsher of Maryville, Larry R. Dunn of Baxter and Jimmy Dean Rogers of Jefferson City.
A fifth permit was donated to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation, which sold it at auction for $9,788. The winning bidder was Shane Alexander, a former Tennessee resident who now lives in Montana.
Fourteen-year-old Robert Goodner of Cleveland, was selected to participate in a youth hunt that will take place following the adult hunt.
There have been a total of 22 elk harvested since the annual hunt began in 2009.
