PA Elk Record Set in Elk County

March 14, 2010
By George Block
It’s rare to measure a trophy that makes the record books, let alone No. 1 or No. 2 in the state. A few weeks after measuring Reed Bamberger’s No. 2 non-typical Pennsylvania elk, I had the pleasure of taping a typical elk that will be No. 1 in the state of PA. This new record elk was taken with a muzzleloader by John Polenski of Meyersdale, PA. The elk was taken between Weedsville and St. Marys, PA in Elk County.

Polenski always hunts with his black powder firearms, so it was natural that he used a .50 cal. Omega inline to down this huge trophy. There was some skepticism from his guide, but the elk was downed with a single shot.

The elk will score high in the Boone and Crockett record book with a final net score of 370 0/8 and unless someone comes up with another bigger will be the No. 1 typical in the PA record book.
