WJAC Video--Elk Problem In Weedville Area

The PA Game Commission had been warned that this would be inevitable. They chose to ignore the warnings and pursue the almighty dollar at the locals expense. Now they talk of relocating? Whose yard this time??? These Elk are not wild and not native to this area. They are grazers, not browsers and are as domesticated as cows and no more of a challenge to hunt. Shame on the PA Game Commission!

Yes they are. On my many trips to DuBois I saw a lot of Elk along the road. They definitely have their fair share of them and they are populating fast.

I would love to send a few hundred to Potter County. Why dont you call the game commission and tell them that you guys would more then welcome them up there.
They are very destructive to landscaping, tree's, bushes, yards and fake flowers in cemeterys. They leave nice piles of poo in your yard. But I think the worst part is the idiots that stop ON the road to take pics of them.
The next time I go up that way to visit my aunt I will lasso some elk and drop them off on my way through ..lol.

The Game Commission has been turning this part of the state into a giant zoo since the elk came here. The home and land owners have NO rights in thius matter, just ask the guy in Renovo who killed 8 in 30 minutes when they were in his garden. The GC arrested him and he BEAT every charge, but had to prove his innocence every step of the way, hiring lots of lawyers nd paying them. Get the damn things out of here and concentrate on our deer, it's obvious that's a tall order for the game wardens.

Learn your history, Elk are native to this part of Pa.

"Learn your history, Elk are native to this part of Pa."
It sounds like you are the one in need of a history lesson so here it is. The Eastern elk which were native to PA are now extinct. They were about half the size of the elk that were brought into PA in 1913 from a western state. These (rocky mountain elk) are grazing animals not browsing animals like the original elk. If you already knew this then I have to question your motive in making your original statement.

You are also wrong.
The Eastern Elk was larger than its western cousins. A full-grown bull could weigh up to 1000 pounds, stand 50-60 inches tall at the shoulder, and carry a rack of antlers six feet in length.

Maybe they should actually sell elk tags instead of using a raffle system that only gives a handful of people the opportunity to hunt them. But then the game comission wouldnt get all that free money from "non refundable" raffles like this. Where you send the money first and you MIGHT get a tag

So you knew they are not the same. I suspected that.
Please tell me where you heard that the eastern elk was larger than the Rocky Mountain Elk. I have never heard that stated before. Please be specific.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_elk it wasnt hard to find. Eastern was definitely bigger

I wouldn't suggest citing wikipedia as a reliable source being that anyone can post and edit that site. Just sayin. I agree with the post about selling tags and not having a lottery system. And bump the number of tags up for a year or 2 until the herd is back to a manageable level. It's not that hard PGC. Quit trying to line your pockets at the expense of hunters.

Here is a web site that gives the history of the Elk that used to be here and the Yellowstone Elk that were brought here.

Elk have NO business in Potter County! Bring them to Potter and I am sure the population will die off quickly! Elk need to stay were the belong and potter is not the place! I guess Weedville isn't the place either. Good for those people taking a stand against the elk population. They are not wild like the are out west!
