I'm not understanding the Elk application process?

I applied for PA Elk and today I get this envelope in the mail. Inside is a hunting license booklet, two pink envelopes for Doe, and a yellow section of hunting license that says "Elk License Application". What is the point of all this? Am I supposed to save the yellow hunting license type thingy?

It's proof that you applied for the elk permit.

A receipt...

Casey,I believe he already had his basic license,and he applied for the elk license afterwards. He wants to know why he got that whole packet just by applying for the elk tag.

TG.....Looks like you're good to go in the Elk Draw!! The non-related stuff received is just due to the incompetence of those running the PALS system.

Received the same but X5, kind of seems like a waste of paper to me. All five were sent to the same address in separate envelopes.

The company that is issuing the licenses is messing up big time, the PGC is trying to get them straightened out.
