July 31 is earlier deadline in elk license drawing
Thursday, July 24, 2014
BENEZETTE - The Pennsylvania Game Commission says July 31 is the deadline for hunters to enter the lottery to receive one of 108 elk licenses to be issued this year.
The deadline is about a month earlier than normal because game officials are holding the drawing earlier than normal, on Aug. 16 at the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Elk Expo in Benezette.
The state will issue 27 licenses for antlered, or bull, elk, and 81 for antlerless cows.
There's a $10.70 nonrefundable fee to enter the drawing. Anyone selected for an elk license must also have valid general hunting and elk licenses to participate in the hunt.
Elk season is Nov. 3-8 with an extended season from Nov. 10-15 in designated areas for hunters who didn't bag an elk during the regular season.
