The Wisconsin state Department of Natural Resources board is set to vote on tighter elk harvest limits in 2020. Hunters were allowed to kill up to 10 bulls during the state's second elk season last year. DNR officials want to reduce the limit to six this year.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Hunters would be allowed to kill only six bull elk in 2020 under a proposal the state Department of Natural Resources board is set to consider next week.

The DNR has been working to repopulate the state with elk for years. The department has established two herds, one in northern Wisconsin and another in central Wisconsin.
