Applicants for this year's elk license drawing can take advantage of a special video offer from the Pennsylvania Game Commission. For $22.95, an individual can apply for the elk hunt and receive a copy of the agency's award-winning video, "Pennsylvania Elk: Reclaiming the Alleghenies."

The 85-minute video is narrated and hosted by Rawley Cogan, former Game Commission elk biologist and current senior development officer for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. It was shot and produced by Hal Korber, Game Commission videographer. The final cut was sifted from 125 hours of field video gathered over a two and a half year period in the wilds of Cameron, Elk and western Clinton counties. Regularly selling for $19.95, the video contains unparalleled elk close-ups, an intriguing look at elk natural history, eye-opening footage and insightful commentary.

"This video is the next best thing to spending time in Pennsylvania's elk country," said Vern Ross, Game Commission executive director. "It is the perfect way to become acquainted with the territory and elk habits if you are interested in hunting Pennsylvania elk."

Those interested can clip and fill out the order form on page 105 of the 2003-2004 Pennsylvania Digest of Hunting & Trapping Regulations, attach it to the completed "Elk License Application" found on page 110 of the Digest and mail it with one check or money order made payable to the Pennsylvania Game Commission for $22.95 ($10 for the elk license drawing, $10 for the video and $2.95 for shipping and handling of the video).

If an individual already has applied for the elk hunt via "The Outdoor Shop" on the agency's website (www.pgc.state.pa.us), write the on-line order number on the elk video form on page 105, and send it to: Pennsylvania Game Commission, Elk License Application, P.O. Box 61890, Harrisburg, PA 17106-1890, along with a check or money order for $10 for the video and $2.95 for shipping and handling of the video. This video offer is not available through "The Outdoor Shop."
