This Friday is Friday the 13th, and—all superstitions aside—it’s going to be a lucky one for 86 Pennsylvania hunters.
That’s because it’s the day the state Game Commission will issue its elk licenses for 2013 during a drawing at its headquarters in Harrisburg.
It’s a pretty exclusive club to get into. Each year, the commission gets tens of thousands of people apply for an elk license, but only issues a relative handful. The commission says the upside for those who aren’t chosen is that every time you enter, you get a preference point for the following year’s drawing.
If you’ve applied, but can’t make it to Harrisburg, you can watch the drawing live on the Game Commission’s website.
