we do, a big part of that reason is a very very limited season which results in high maturity rate. along alot of our elk country being farm land

very unlikely. our elk herd is the pride and Joy of the Pa Game Commission, and a large portion of the population..hunters and non hunters alike
the PGC is a stand alone agency, with very very little imput from the state legislature. the commission answers to sportsmen, and it is self funded with no tax money from the General assembly.


if they did we would just shoot them and pay no attention to any federal or state alw barring that activity

I have to wonder about the genetics of an elk like that. Where did it come from? That looks like the results of a high fence breeding operation. Did PA introduce all wild elk or did they get some from breeders?

I lived and hunted the hills in PA It’s flat compared to mountain states. I’m hunting elk this week at 7200 now in E Idaho. Seen 3 bears so far. one grizz and hearing wolves at night

Pluse zero hunting pressure. Basically farmed elk. Carry on

Pa's elk re introduction started in the early 1900s from wild stock captured in Wyoming.

we have a very very limited hunting season. i think this year there were only like 75 tags total issued. they are not high fence or game farm elk at all. they live and eat in mountainous farm country with Corn, soybeans and alfalfa being major crops

Thanks. I was just curious. Quite possibly we never see bulls like that in the west because they get shot too soon. Game farms with controlled breeding can produce them, though.
