Bear and Elk harvests should be reported to check stations

A successful bear hunter must, within 24 hours, take the animal, along with his or her hunting license and bear license, to a Game Commission check station. Bears should be field-dressed before being brought to a check station. Bear check stations are open on each day of the regular firearms bear season, and on select days of the extended seasons. Hunters harvesting bears anywhere during the statewide archery bear season, or during any early season should contact the appropriate region office for instructions to have the animals checked. Hunters with bears to be checked after check stations close should contact the appropriate region office. 

A successful elk hunter must, within 24 hours, take the animal, along with his or her hunting license and elk license, to the Game Commission's elk check station located at the Elk Country Visitor Center, 950 Winslow Hill Road, Benezette. The GPS coordinates are 41.3231 N and 78.3695 W. Check station hours are Monday 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Tuesday - Saturday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
