Minor item. Consider how many hunters are allowed to hunt in the eastern states each year compared to the western states.
Not many is the answer. In Pennsylvania, they draw 56 tags, 18 antlered.
Consider Colorado. Last year, we had over 200,000 hunters after elk with 48,000 taken.
It makes those eastern states look like game farms.
Fact is, an elk needs time to grow a big rack. On an indian reservation or in an area that is very tight on the permits allowed, the elk has a chance to grow. Public land hunts in the West are a different matter.

Warning

When hunting "eastern elk" make sure you don't shoot the neighbors prized holstein milk cow grazing in the same field.

Eastern elk "hunting" is not like that found in the wild,wild west, and neither are the elk the same.
