Elk expo canceled; Pennsylvania Game Commission will reveal elk hunting license winners live online

The Pennsylvania Game Commission livestreams images from a webcam in the Pennsylvania Elk Range in September each year.

Lacking a 2020 Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Elk Expo as a venue, the Pennsylvania Game Commission plans to reveal the names of the hunters being drawn to receive 2020-21 elk hunting licenses in a Facebook Live online event on Saturday, August 15.

The elk expo has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, so the commission will opt for live online coverage of the awarding of elk licenses beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday its Facebook page.

While elk-license applicants often are eager to see if they’ve been selected for the Pennsylvania elk hunt, there’s no requirement for applicants to watch the presentation live. The commission said within an hour of the presentation ending it will notify by phone all applicants who were selected for elk licenses.

Additionally, all applicants can go online to the Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System to check the status of their application, which will be updated sometime on Monday, August 17. If selected for a license, the application will be marked, “Awarded.”

The elk-license drawing has been conducted at the elk expo since 2014. Prior to that, it was held at the Game Commission’s Harrisburg headquarters.

This year, with the elk expo canceled, the drawing was in Harrisburg a few days prior to the live-streamed announcement at the Elk Country Visitor Center.

The name of each winner will be confidential and not released until the livestreamed announcement on August 15.

The commission arranged for a third-party witness to observe the drawing prior to the release of the names.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won’t tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don’t include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don’t want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won’t publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
