New State Record Elk is 4th All-Time and Comes From an Unlikely State

A new Pennsylvania state record bull elk has been officially scored and is the 4th largest elk ever killed by a hunter.

Duana Kramer drew a Pennsylvania Elk tag with minuscule odds, and he made the tag pay off. He used the guys over at Elk County Outfitters to guide his hunt for a monster Pennsylvania bull. He killed a bull that is the 6th largest ever killed and the 4th largest bull ever killed by a hunter. Two bulls ahead of him in the Boone and Crocket record books were deadheads picked up on the road.

While most people do not think of Pennsylvania as an elk hunting state, they have produced many big bulls in the last couple of years. This bull was measured by two official Boone and Crocket scores coming in at 468 6/8″ gross non-typical and 455 net non-typical. The monster bull had been tagged by the PDNR and was 11 1/2 years old.

The tag that was drawn by Duane came with free processing, mount, guiding services, and a camera crew to film the entire thing for TV. We still do not have any details regarding when or if this elk hunt video will be released, but we will keep you posted here at thehuntingnews.com when those details are made available.

Below is a picture of the bull and the official score sheet.
