Those interested in hunting elk in Wisconsin will have to wait at least another year. Officials with the Department of Natural Resources says Wisconsin’s elk population is growing, but big game ecologist Kevin Wallenfang says it’s not yet big enough for state officials to authorize a hunting season for the animals.
