If you're one of the hunters who hit the "Michigan Elk License Lottery", according to 9and10news.com up north, today's a big day - the opening day for elk season. Some people try their whole lives to get an elk license. (I personally know only two people who have been lucky enough to take elk in Michigan)

According to wilx.com, this year, the elk herd is doing so well,  the DNR will issue 200 permits - twice what they have been issuing in recent years.

How tough is it to get an elk license in Michigan? Real tough. Here's a story MLive.com did last year about how long the odds are.

Good luck, if you're one of the lucky few!
