Irwin Sportsmen's Association's mission shall be the encouragement and development of the honesty, good fellowship, and self discipline which are essential to good sportsmanship in all phases of sports afield as well as the conservation of wildlife and to own or lease grounds and buildings for these purposes.
While the 2020 Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Elk Expo has been canceled due to COVID-19, hunters still can go online Saturday, Aug. 15 to watch live as the names of those drawing 2020-21 Pennsylvania elk licenses are announced. The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s live coverage of the awarding of 2020-21 elk licenses is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15 on theagency’s Facebook page. The announcement of elk-license recipients is scheduled to begin shortly thereafter.
If you missed the deadline to apply for the 2020 Pennsylvania Game Commission elk license lottery, you're in luck. You can still purchase tickets for the Keystone Elk Country Alliance (KECA) Elk Tag Raffle. The KECA Elk Tag Raffle winner will receive one 2020 Pennsylvania bull (antlered) tag and can hunt in any elk hunt zone from Sept. 1, 2020 to Nov. 7, 2020.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission recently launched its new podcast, “Call of the Outdoors,” a series of episodes focused on wildlife, hunting, habitat and conservation across the Keystone State. The podcast is hosted by Game Commission Marketing Director and world turkey calling champion Matt Morrett.
“We are really excited and proud to share this podcast with people who love Pennsylvania wildlife as much as we do at the Game Commission,” said Morrett. “Listeners will get an inside look into how wildlife is managed here in Penn’s Woods and hopefully gain a new sense of knowledge and pride in their state wildlife agency.”
The first three episodes, being released in conjunction with Pennsylvania’s statewide spring gobbler season, feature a few well-known turkey hunters: Country Music Superstar Blake Shelton, “Bone Collector” Founder Michael Waddell and Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans.
Please call the North Huntingdon Police (724) 863-8800) to report shooting at the slate dump (West of our ranges beside RR tracks). We need you to help us record when this happens on the official documentation at the Police Department
