Pennsylvania Game News - February 2015 - 6

Maybe you'll be the next lucky hunter to visit elk country to go on a dream hunt. Make
sure you enter the 2015 Elk Hunt drawing and keep your fingers crossed.

once-in-a-lifetime hunt. He was pulled
from a field of 26,480 applicants with
more than 130,000 chances to be one
of 108 hunters (27 for bulls) selected to
participate in the 2014 elk hunt.
George was on stand waiting for elk
by 6:40 a.m. He didn't wait long.
"In about 10 minutes, we saw cows,"
George said. "My bull came right up
behind them."
The cows were 50 to 60 yards away
in really thick cover. Compared to the
deer back home in Luzerne County,
they sure were a lot larger. But George
saw that as a chance to shoot at a "bigger target."
Big as they were the elk were tough
to see in the cover, though, and George
waited for his chance to squeeze one off
with his Browning 7 mm.
"Where we were, you couldn't see
the majority of the body; you'd see legs
and neck," said George Sr.
At 7:30 a.m., the bull stepped into
a clear shooting lane away from the
three cows and two calves he was tailing. George took the 90-yard shot. The
bull labored away. At about 130 yards,
George's Browning delivered a deal6

sealing second round. The bull went
down, and stayed down.
George's 7-by-6 had an estimated
weight of 837 pounds and a gross
green score of 387. It would become
the third largest gross green-scored
bull taken in the 2014 elk hunt. And
he made it back to school in time the
next day to ensure he could represent
his school in the tournament. Things
didn't work out there for his team. But
he made it!
There's no doubt that these young
hunters have lived the dream that preoccupies many of us. They went into
elk country loaded for bulls and came
out winners.
It's an opportunity the Game Commission provides dozens of hunters
who are selected in its annual elk hunt
drawing. But you have to take a chance
to have a chance to go.
Less than a couple dozen of the 108
hunters selected in the 2014 elk hunt
drawing failed to take an elk. So, success followed most hunters afield during
the elk hunt. That was especially true
for George and Travis. It surely was the
best of times for both of them!
