Corrections to page 79-80 of 2014 Big Game Regulations – Elk Bow hunting:

Hunts 248R, 249R, 258R1, 258R2 and 259R should be on the list of those that will receive one tag valid for the general elk bow season and the controlled bow season (so with other hunts in blue text at top of page 79). Also the entire Trask Unit is open to elk bow hunting, not just NF lands within the Trask Unit. These corrections have been made to this online PDF of pages 79-80.
