From the Pennsylvania Game Commission - FRIDAY THE 13TH LUCKY FOR HUNTERS?
Eighty-six applicants to be chosen for coveted Pennsylvania elk licenses.
Long associated with misfortune, Friday the 13th figures this year to rank among the luckiest of days for dozens of Pennsylvania hunters.
Pennsylvania’s annual public drawing for elk-hunting licenses is scheduled to be held on Friday, Sept. 13 at the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s headquarters in Harrisburg. As a result of the drawing, 86 hunters will be selected to purchase a coveted license for the state’s 2013 elk hunt.
“There always are so many people who want to take part in our elk hunt, and so many fewer licenses available, that all whose names are drawn truly can consider themselves lucky,” Game Commission Executive Director Carl G. Roe said. “You can bet, too, that the hunters selected for a 2013 elk license will have a whole different opinion of Friday the 13th from here on out.”
Of course, there’s a flipside.
