Taking elk counts towards a hunter's deer permits and bag limit. Licenses and check-in procedures for elk are the same as for deer. Successful elk hunters are required to contact the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries so that samples for diseases can be collected. Elk hunting may be closed in some regions where the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is restoring elk populations.
