What a waste! Where is the sport in shooting tame animals just so the state can make money!

they are not all tame and in some places where they "seem" to be tame is right next to a NO HUNT ZONE and ppl hunt right on the edge of it in order to kill rather enjoy the hunt...i think the hunting elk is a great thing in pennsylvania...

@9:11 - First off they are not "tame". A few may be desensitized, but they are still wild animals. Second, the "state" makes nothing from this. The Game Commission makes the money and the money is put right back into conservation efforts. Without hunters and the mass amounts of money that they pump into the system, we would not have many of the wooded, public areas for you to enjoy. Thank you for your attention.

Hey 9:11, you are most likely the same person that complains about hitting a deer with your car. The reason you don't hit more deer is due to programs similar to this. Yes there are some bad seeds out there in the hunting world, but hunters and hunting in general plays a vital part in population control. Without them, animals such as deer and elk would increase in numbers unchecked, leading to a rapid resurgence or predatory animals (ie coyotes). A resurgence that would inevitably lead to human vs. predator encounters. And you would be there to complain about that also, calling on the state to do something about it. Get a life, please, and leave the rest of us alone.

The first comment on here gets a Dildine Delux Award since the person obviously has no clue. We went out with a hunter two seasons ago in the hunt zone out near Wykoff Run Road and guess how many elk we seen? Zero. I had a pediometer and it measured that we walked more than 25 miles. If these elk was so tamed dont you think maybe we would see well you know maybe ONE over six days of hunting? And we had an experience guide with us too.

Elk hunting is a joke, I worked in the woods in that area and they would walk right up to you. Might as well hunt in a cage. Shameful.
