Nebraska hunters bagged a record 105 bull elk this fall.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says 91 percent of hunters with valid permits for the hunt shot a bull -- also a record.

That compares with 90 bulls harvested and a 79 percent success rate last year.

Bull elk season ended in Nebraska on Oct. 28. Thirty-one elk cows were harvested in the first half of the cow elk season, which ran from Sept. 29-Oct. 28. That season resumes Dec. 1 through Dec. 31.

The commission is reminding successful elk hunters to send in elk tooth collection envelopes to Nebraska Game and Parks.
