Yes, there are elk in PA. There have been elk here since asbout 1900 when they were brought in from Wyoming.
They have had elk hunts
here the last two years now and the herd size warrents hunting them on a drawing. They killed 70 of them this year.
An estimated herd size of 750 in the North central part of the State.
I had 5 Bulls in my yard at once on more then one occasion. They are distructive as hell. Have to put up electric fences to keep them out of the garden and away from the fruit trees.
We are right in the middle of the elk range.
