The first Expo was held in 2001, in the heart of the elk range on State Game Lands 311 on Winslow Hill. It was moved to St. Mary's the following year, and later was moved to Kersey.
The following are some scenes from the first Expo. They are still captures from video clips, so I hope you will excuse the poor quality.
One Of The Many Exhibits
This year The PGC decided to hold the drawing for both bobcat and elk licenses at the Harrisburg headquarters. With Elk Expo attendance in decline during the past few years, it was decided to discontinue the event after The PGC announced this decision, as it was thought that the loss of the drawing would cause an even further drop in attendance.
Today In News Release:#095-09, The PGC announced that the drawings will be held on September 11, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. Interested persons may visit the agency's website (www.state.pa.us) and then click on the "Watch Drawings Live" icon to watch a live webcast of the proceedings.
