Elk Draw Stats

Does anyone know if the PGC keeps stats on Elk Apps submitted, drawn, and tags used? For some deluded reason I put in one for Elk Zone 2 on a whim at Dicks today (was a bit annoyed that you couldn't choose the no preference option for elk zones like you can on the outdoor shop). Just wondering what the odds are...I'm kind of terrified of winning and having no clue how to get to that area of PA and hunt elk!

Oh man I am so excited for 2012-2013 hunting season to kick off I'll finally have full range in terms of tools and game to choose from.

True, but it just seems so staggering with 20k apps out there. Then again it's not for one spot, and those preferences add up eventually.

Re: Elk Draw Stats

Is there a way to check how many preference points I have accumulated?

Re: Elk Draw Stats

Hmm, not sure. Nothing to indicate it when I do the app status check, but then again I know I have no preference points so it may not list anything.

Call the PGC & they will provide you with your accumulated pref points. Have your hunting license CID or DL number ready to give. I called 2 years ago to ck on how many I accumulated. As the same with each year... I feel this will be my lucky year!!

Re: Elk Draw Stats

Your welcome Ohiosam.

Beginning with the 2003-04 license year unsuccessful applicants started earning preference points towards future drawings. Going into this license year(2012-2013) the max preference points one can have is 9.

Best of luck!!

Re: Elk Draw Stats

my buddy drew a cow tag in 2010, it was his first time applying. Harvested a 550 cow on day three.

Luck can be had.
