My 25 min drive home from work is over 1500 ft elevation climb and in the winter, absolutely sucks azz. Often enough during the winter its hard for me to find a mountain road open to get home. Pretty sure you have not explored much of this area

It’s got to be kinda surreal to spend a week deciding which 400+ inch bull to kill, after looking at them in a outfitters photo album.

PA grows ‘em big, no doubt.

Honestly, the dude was an out of stater which kind of pisses me off. The tags are so limited here, the game commission should not be allowing anyone who isnt a pa resident to hunt these monsters

Don’t blame you. Was just looking and it seems only 36ish bull tags available? At least one is raffled off, as the fella in the OP won.

6 raffle tickets for $100. I wonder how many they sold, how much money they raised?

The PA Game Commission already introduced wolves from out west into the state. They even traded PA wild turkeys for them.

They won’t admit it, but it happened.

that hunter won that tag from the KECA raffle, it was one of the Governor's tags. the other one will get Raffled off at RMEF..i do how ever agree with you that general draw tickets SHOULD NOT go to Non residents. I am sitting on 18 points

having been born and reared in PA, and knowing the state well, it did cause a chuckle when reading the comments about flat land and easy winters. A bull with a rack like that is the result of some factors - and I always have felt that limestone in the soil is additive to impressive racks on deer and elk in some parts of PA. I can't gauge the body very well in that photo, but it does not look especially large in comparison to our big bulls in NM high country. However, that rack - very impressive. Love it.

There are "hills" in that country that will test one that is in shape....Nor are the winters usually easy in Cameron, Clinton and Potter...

The dirty secret is that Pa Elk are a public attraction...that Elk most likely had frequent human contact....

I hear they're using them to spread Covid whistle crazy grin

Hell of an Elk. We were up in Ridgeway last month to shoot the silhouette smalbore nationals and promised ourselves we stay a couple days extra next year and fish and go see if we can find some elk. Pretty country.

I don't have a pic, but there was a monster bull taken this month in the archery season.

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

Absolutely correct on all points there are some really nice bulls thanks to the easy living. As to the wolf thing you are spot on.


There are no problems that cannot be resolved by the suitable application of high explosive.
