A elk tag raffle in Tennessee is one of ten different outdoor packages available to raise funds for wildlife management and conservation efforts by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.
The elk hunt package features one of the more sought-after tags and includes a number of other prizes. The winner receives a tag for the fall rifle hunt in what most view as the best elk hunting zone (EHZ1) in the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area. EHZ1, Chestnut Ridge and Fork Mountain, has the highest hunter success rate of any zone and spans nearly 6,900 acres.
The seven-day hunt covers October 8-14, 2022. If unsuccessful in EHZ1 after that time, the hunter can then access all zones over the next seven days.

According to WATE-TV, Tennessee native and PGA golfer Brandt Snedeker won the 2020 elk hunt package and donated it to a wounded veteran.
