PA bull elk

Why is it that PA seems to have bigger antlered bull elk than other eastern states that had or have Rocky Mountain elk?

Re: PA bull elk

Only a few of the bulls are killed each year letting the rest live anoher year. Same reason we have better bucks in the state now. They are living long enough to reach maturity. Pair that with the food sources they have available to them and you end up with big bulls.

Re: PA bull elk

Make sense but it seems PA's bulls grow even bigger than bulls in other states that supposedly have better habitat such as Arkansans, Oklahoma and Kentucky.
