Pennsylvania is known as a state with abundant public hunting land.  Good News!  Now, there is more.  Thanks to a private donation, the Pennsylvania Game Commission and The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, a huge chunk of game-rich land is now available to the public.

If you live in the East, you may be unconcerned about conservation groups such as the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, Whitetails Unlimited and other conservation groups.  However, when we help one wildlife species, we often help others and by supporting conservation groups, hunting in general and the wildlife we chase benefit.  Best of all, being a conservation supporter is much more than just writing a check.  Often fundraisers for RMEF, SCI, NRA, and other groups are held through banquets which offer great fun and a chance to win wonderful prizes.

The Full Story

An additional 766 acres of Pennsylvania elk habitat is now permanently protected and opened to public access thanks to efforts by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC), and a generous donor.
“This would not have happened without landowners who care about Pennsylvania and both understand and appreciate the crucial wildlife values of this area,” said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer.
Located in Centre County, the project extends the western unit of State Game Lands 100 to the north along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. By doing so, it expands that unit to 5,272 acres in size and improves access to it while expanding the overall size of the two State Game Lands 100 units to a combined 21,069 acres.
