    Folks, our organization (Kentucky Grouse Hunters Association Inc.) received an elk tag this year from KDFWLR to auction off. The board has decided to post our tag on different web sites and have a call in auction. They have set a ceiling on this bid, (meaning when that bid is met the auction is over) along with starting dates and ending dates (starting Jan. 3rd, 2016 ending May 1, 2016). If you want to enter a bid give me a call with the amount and contact info (606-789-7125). Money from this tag will be spent for habitat improvement and youth programming. All names and bids will be handled according to laws concerning auction bidding with Kentucky Gaming Commission, along with laws with the KDFWLR (301 FAR 2:132). Below is information concerning the tag.
    Commission Conservation, Permit Certificate, Fall 2016 Bull Elk Permit
    301 FAR 2:132 establishes the guidelines for the elk hunting seasons. Holding a special commission permit for elk entitles the permit holder to take one (1) either sex elk during the annual public elk hunt in the designated area. A special commission permit holder for elk must follow the guidelines established in 301 KAR 2:132, including checking in and out with the area hunt manager (if applicable) and telechecking their elk.

    Birdman: Not to stick my nose under the tent, but my nose is under the tent. Having folks call you with oral bids could cause you a lot of headaches and could be a recipe for disaster. It would provide a lot more CYA protection for you to have people email their bids to a new KGHA gmail or yahoo email account. Not only would that preclude somebody from falsely claiming they had orally provided you with a "winning" bid (and they you ignored it so that your buddy got it), it also would create a paper trail if the winner tried to back out. Suppose for example someone makes the winning bid of $15K 3 weeks before the auction closes. The next highest bid at that point in time is $7.5K. If the guy decides he doesn't really want the hunt several weeks later, he can say that he never made the $15K bid and that you were simply mistaken when you thought he was making that bid. He walks (or at most is a defendant in he said / he said lawsuit) and KGHA still has an elk tag. You guys have closed the auction 3 weeks early, so the next highest bid is only $7.5K before any kind of serious bidding has occurred.

    You might want to rethink this.
