MO – HUNTING – Cole County man and 2 others harvest elk in state’s first elk hunting season

A Cole County man was one of five people in the state selected for Missouri’s first elk season in modern history. The five randomly selected hunters from all corners of the state were given the opportunity to hunt elk beginning this October. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) randomly selected the few lucky winners from a pool of 19,215 permit applications including 33 for one resident-landowner antlered-elk permit and 19,182 for four general permits. The five hunters can then each harvest one bull elk that has at least one antler being a minimum of six inches long. When Michael Buschjost, 39, of St. Thomas, was selected he told the MDC that he’s, “Pretty darn excited to draw this tag!” His passion is bowhunting and he has hunted elk in Montana, Colorado, and Wyoming with two bulls and a cow elk harvested from those efforts. He says he is excited to take his three kids with him to scout the area before the season opens. “I’m really looking forward to being part of this first hunt,” says Buschjost. “A ton of work has been done on MDC’s part to make this happen.” On Tuesday, his dream became a reality when Buschjost took a bull elk outside of the refuge portion of Peck Ranch Conservation Area. The Missouri Department of Conservation said he joined Samuel Schultz, 42, of Winfield which is in Lincoln County, in taking home a bull elk. Schultz harvested a bull elk on Tuesday on private property in Shannon County.  [full article]
