Monday is the deadline for hunters to buy an elk quota hunt application permit.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will issue 200 elk hunting permits for the 2006 hunting season, up from 100 permits last year.

The increased opportunity is the result of a growing elk herd that now numbers around 5,700.

They're in the eastern Kentucky's elk restoration zone.
