Hunter Don Thoman with guide Larry Guenot 8x8 380 Class Bull 2012 Season

Trophy Rack Lodge has been providing elk guiding service for the PA Wild Elk season since 2009.  Larry and our guides enjoy their time in the woods and since the elk herd has extended it's range right to our door, it has become another way to enjoy the opportunity to help others in the challenge of hunting the monster trophy elk located right here in PA!

We have exclusive rights to 750 acres of private, prime hunting ground in Zone 12, none better in the country.  Larry planted 15 to 20 acres of food plots with clover, turnips, buckwheat and chicory. Tree stands are placed overlooking the plots and elk trails that weave through the property.  We also hunt state game lands and know the elk hot spots in all the zones.  We do extensive preseason scouting and know where the big boys are located.  Year to year we watch the bulls and know their territory and where they move after the rut.  We do the work for you and you are more than welcome to join us for some preseason scouting when it is convenient to your schedule.

New elk zones have been added in 2015.  The elk range has been expanded into Centre County with the addition of Zone 13 and Zone 1.  Our lodge is located in Zone 13 where we have an additional 800 acres of private ground that we own.  It borders the Susquehanna River and Larry has food plots established there also.  Zone 1 is an open zone where any hunter can fill their tag.

     Your Guided Elk Hunt will Include:

Preseason scouting done by our experience guide crew.  We will provide you with updates and                     photos.  You are welcome to make arrangements to come along to suit your schedule.

The 2011 and 2012 bull elk hunts we guided have been featured in the PA Game News magazine.  The Centre DailyTimes newspaper sent a reporter to Trophy Rack Lodge who came along on the hunt and featured three of our 2013 bull and cow hunters. Click on the  link to the article  .    

If you are one of the lucky hunters to be drawn for an elk tag, contact Trophy Rack Lodge and talk to Larry about elk hunt details and fee, and he will answer any questions you may have.  We have the experience, the equipment and the eyes out in the woods that you need to make the odds in your favor to bag your trophy elk!

Check us out as we take a limited amount of hunters so we can give you the attention you deserve during your hunt of a lifetime of a monster PA elk!
