I have not been lucky enough to draw a tag but I have gone there to view elk. There is a lot of public land in many of the elk zones. There are very few tags so I doubt that you would be overrun with other elk hunters. Also, I think the firearms deer season is after the elk season, so you would not have those hunters to contend with.Are there any of these PA elk on public land? Is there any public land in PA that's not overrun with hunters or all the elk on private land.
