History on display
The rack of the unlawfully killed bull elk shown in the well-known
1953 photo at left recently was made into a portable display that
made its first stop in May in the lobby of the Game Commission's
Harrisburg headquarters. The bull allegedly was shot in mistake
for a deer, and the photo was used heavily in a campaign to
educate the public that elk and deer share the same range in
parts of Pennsylvania. Pictured in the historic photo are District
Game Protector Norman Erickson and his son, Eric.
