Morristown, Tenn. --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is asking the public to review and submit comments on its draft of the Strategic Elk Management Plan, which serves as a guide for the agency’s decisions regarding the elk program.

 The plan is available for review on the TWRA website by clicking here.

In May, TWRA held two public workshops that were very successful in generating public input about the plan. Now that a draft of the plan is complete, TWRA would like the public to review the plan and submit comments. 

“The plan will provide guidance for the TWRA Elk Program for the next 10 years with an emphasis on healthy populations, habitat, and public involvement,” said Brad Miller, TWRA Elk Program leader. “Broad program goals are provided as the basic framework of the plan, and specific objectives and strategies have been created to meet these goals.”
