JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wildlife managers are considering an expanded early season elk hunt in an area of Jackson Hole where excessive numbers of elk have caused damage to private ranches and a subdivision.

Wyoming Game and Fish Department wildlife biologists say the idea is to increase the harvest on that portion of the herd to help control its numbers.

The proposed hunt would allow people possessing over-the-counter licenses to take to the field on Aug. 15 in unit 78, which extends from the Grand Teton National Park boundary to Wilson on the west side of Highway 26/89/191.

Early season hunting there already exists but is open now only to people holding limited-quota licenses acquired through a draw.
