First Archery Elk Season!

4 Bulls over 400 BC in 2019!!!

4 Bulls over 400 BC in 2019!!!

Our  hunter  Jim  Lickfeld  had  the  honor  of  harvesting  the  First  bull  of  the First  PA  Archery  elk  hunt!  Trophy  Rack  Lodge coordinated  with  World  champion elk  caller Al  Morris,  who works  for  FoxPRO,  to  call  durning the  hunt.   PAGC  sent  a  videographers  along  to  capture both  of  Trophy  Rack  Lodge’s  archery  bull  elk  hunts  on  film.    Bull  hunter  Luke  Miller  hunted  with  us  in  EHZ  13  and  brought  down  a  monster  6x7!   Bill  Kilby‘s  patience  paid  off  when  he  succeeded  in  his  archery  cow  hunt  in  Zone  3.   

Nothing is  as  exciting  as  calling  in bulls   in  the  rut.    An  archery  elk hunt  is  a  true  challenge.    Choose  Trophy  Rack  Lodge as  your  PA  archery  elk  outfitter!



A  link  to  the  PGC  video will  be  provided  when  it  is  released  in  May.

First PA Late Cow Season!

4 Bulls over 400 BC in 2019!!!

First PA Late Cow Season!

Another first for PA is the addition of the Late Antlerless Season held in January of 2020.    A  new  set  of  challenges  were  before  us  with  the  possibility  of the harsh  and  unpredicable PA winter weather  and  difficult  access  to  hunting  areas, but  it  was  fortunate  that  the  weather  was  mild  and  most  of  29  tags  were  given out  were  filled.    Three lucky  guys  who  drew  tags in  zones  10, 12  and  14  hunted  with  Trophy  Rack  Lodge  and  harvested  their  cow  elk.
