The Blue Mountain Chapter Safari Club International has recently provided the Pennsylvania Game Commission with several helpful tools to protect and manage wildlife.
The club most recently donated a $2,500 set of night-vision goggles to western Perry County Game Warden Steve Brussese. The chapter two years earlier also donated a $1,700 robotic deer decoy to Perry County game wardens.

Additionally, this 8x7 bull elk, pictured below, along with a mature adult cow elk are now roaming the Sproul State Forest sporting GPS radio collars that were purchased with proceeds from the club's 2019 annual banquet.
Thank you to the club and its members for their generous contributions to the Game Commission's wildlife protection and wildlife management practices.
