I got to measure the very first bull takin when they opened elk in Pa. The guy is from Erie, Pa. Shot it with a 3006. It had some NT tines. Gross 392+, as a NT 367+, as a TYP 337+. I have not put in. Figure my chances would be better with AZ.

I was at the KECA raffle draw in Benezette, PA. Thete was maybe 200 people present.

10,500 tickets, the guy who drew only bought one, and was present.

It was awesome!

I was there Sat for the PA Game Comission Tag drawing. The building was packed inside and there were chairs outside on both sides of the building. Then there must have been a couple hundred people standing around the building. They had speakers set up so even if you could not see inside, you could hear the names being drawn. It was quite an event! Several people were actually in attendance who drew. They were brought up front and treated like celebrities! People congratulating them after and taking their pictures. A junior hunter standing right in front of me was one of the lucky hunters. He was pretty excited! ;-)

I didn’t get any pics Sat, but took a few Sunday at the RAFFLE tag drawing. There were not nearly as many people present on Sunday for the drawing. Maybe only 1/3 rd.

The lead up to the RAFFLE tag drawing on Sunday was pretty neat. Rawley Cogan who was the head Elk Biologist for the PGC (who now works for the Keystone Elk Country Alliance) was the “MC”. They had 4 of the 5 previous winners of the KECA tag in attendance and introduced them. And believe it or not, all 5 KECA tag holders not only shot bulls, they were ALL over 400”!

What amazes me is there current PA elk were reintroduced from the western elk subspercies but are actually kinda evolving into the original now extinct eastern elk subspecies by the look of some of their racks...

I'm setting on15 Regular preference points, and 1 Archery Only going into 2020 season...
