MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Natural Resources has picked four people to participate in Wisconsin's first managed elk hunt.

An additional license will be awarded through a raffle conducted by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased through the foundation's website. The winner be drawn Aug. 11.
