JASPER, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission reports a record 52 elk were harvested by hunters during Arkansas’ recent elk seasons.

Elk program coordinator Wes Wright says the elk were taken during two five-day seasons in October and breaks the record of 44 elk that were harvested in 2012.

The commission says 22 elk were taken on public land, including the Buffalo National River; Gene Rush Wildlife Management Area; Richland Valley Conservation Area; and Bearcat Hollow Wildlife Management Area. The remaining 30 elk were taken by hunters on private land under the commission’s elk management assistance program.

Eighteen of the elk were bulls and 34 were cows.
