in select Elk Hunt Zones (EHZs), 10
bull and 16 antlerless licenses are available. There also are 34 licenses available
for a late antlerless-only elk season that
runs from Jan. 2 through 9. The extended
season is no longer offered because no elk
were ever taken in the season.
"Our inaugural archery and late antlerless seasons went well," Banfield said.
"So, we're offering a little more opportunity in those seasons in the coming license
year. With all five bull bowhunters taking
big bulls last fall and late-season elk hunters shooting at a high success rate, we
were comfortable the seasons were working as planned and decided to bump up
the number of licenses for each season."
The general season had a high bull
harvest and an average antlerless harvest,
Banfield said. In the 2019 general season,
89 of 99 licensed elk hunters took elk. All
27 bull hunters filled their tags. In 2018.
99 elk were taken by 125 hunters; 25 of
26 bull hunters filled their tags.
Challenges associated with a one-week
season are bad weather, difficulty finding
elk (sometimes even with a guide), and
the lifestyle of elk, which regularly roam
across the landscape widely for food. Elk
hunting often involves a lot of walking
and stalking, unlike setting ambushes in

whitetail hunting.
"You can waste a lot of time in areas
that held elk before the season," Banfield
said. "The only way you'll know they're
not there is by proving it, which takes,
and also often wastes, time. Elk live in
nomadic groups that don't provide a clear
driver for their movements. So, success
frequently depends on your ability to find
elk and hunt them where they are."
That means game-planning on the fly,
adapting to what the surroundings offer
and getting close enough for a killing shot.
Then you must make it.

ABOUT HUNTERS
The new elk-hunting opportunities provided in 2019 drew hunters from across
the country for a total of 41,240 hunters
purchasing 64,143 individual elk-license
applications.
Sixty percent of the 2019 applicants
applied for one season, 24 percent applied
for two and the remaining 16 percent
applied for three seasons.
Pennsylvanians made up 36,181 of the
applicants; nonresidents, the remaining
5,059.
Pennsylvanians also comprised about
90 percent of the hunters drawn to participate in 2019-20 elk seasons. Two of
