How to Draw a Pennsylvania Elk Tag

Show Notes

If you recall a few weeks ago we had a conversation with Jacob Coons who drew a late season bull tag during the 2021-2022 PA elk hunting season. On this week's episode, we are going into more detail about Pennsylvania Elk Hunting with Bryan Hale of Elk County Outfitters. Bryan is the lead of this operation and has a ton of experience guiding hunters to success in the Keystone State. Not only is he a guide, but he has also been a lucky tag holder, harvesting a cow elk during the 2015 season.

After our introduction, Bryan chats about his evolution into Pennsylvania elk. With recent season and application changes, Bryan provides us his thoughts on how to position your application based on specific goals, such as bull versus cow hunting, zone preferences, and season expectations. In addition to planning, Bryan also shares with us what to expect if you successfully draw a tag. Elk County Outfitters spends a ton of time in the off season scouting and preparing for fall. You will get a glimpse of strategy as well as entertainment by the countless success stories. License sales for Pennsylvania begin June 13th, so get your elk applications ready!
