BENEZETTE – Just over a month ago, Governor Tom Corbett signed House Bill 2169 into law. The bill, in part, created a special conservation license that could be chanced off annually to raise funds to benefit conservation and education efforts in Pennsylvania's Elk Country. Working together, in a span of roughly four weeks the Keystone Elk Country Alliance (KECA) and Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) were able to raise over $150,000 selling tickets for the first ever Pa. Elk Tag Raffle.
The winner of the tag was drawn on Sunday afternoon during the closing day of this year's Pa. Great Outdoors Elk Expo, which was held at the Elk Country Visitor Center in Benezette. A young girl in the audience had the opportunity to select the winning ticket, and Paul Brown of Blandon was chosen. Blandon is located in Berks County in the eastern part of the state.
