LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State wildlife officials are calling the annual elk hunt a success after 78 animals were killed.

Wildlife biologist Jennifer Kleitch says hunters got their elk, and the Department of Natural Resources achieved its animal management goals. The elk season consisted of four brief periods in August, September and December.

Thousands of hunters applied for 100 elk licenses. Each animal killed was inspected by DNR staff. A tooth was pulled to determine the age of the animal.

There will be no January hunt because the DNR reached its management goals.
