Have you heard that a herd of free-roaming elk estimated at 900 inhabits the north central areas of the Keystone State?
Elk numbers have increased to the point that the Pennsylvania Game Commission reestablished a limited hunting season as a population management tool in 2001.
Until this limited hunting season based on a lottery system was reinstated, Pennsylvania's elk herd had been protected since 1932. This column focuses on the story behind the demise and restoration of these magnificent creatures to Penn's Woods.
