First Time Elk Hunter Bags Season's Largest
William Zee was one of 18 to draw out an antlered elk tag in Pennsylvania. Just having the tag made him feel lucky. 38 tags were issued for antlerless elk and originally 18 were antlered, but one more was added later.
Typically a whitetail deer hunter, Zee decided to go the elk route this year and took both his rifle and bow out on this hunt. The bull elk was shot on November 1st in Goshen Township and weighed in at 930 lbs, where the second largest weighed 780.
This year, the largest elk was harvested by William Zee of Doylestown. The woodland beast had an estimated live weight of 930 pounds -- just shy of half a ton. Even better, it's 9x8 set of antlers is quite likely to come in as the second-largest non-typical elk rack on the state's record book when it is officially scored. That's a successful hunt.
