(Harrisburg) -- The Pennsylvania Game Commission says 72 elk were harvested in the one-week season that ended Saturday, including 25 bulls. 

The agency says that means nearly 85 percent of the hunters who participated this year took home a trophy, including 100 percent of those with licenses to hunt antlered elk, or bulls.  

Fourteen of the bulls taken weighed 700 pounds or more, with the largest at 847 pounds. The largest antlerless elk taken weighed 621 pounds, and 10 of the antlerless elk taken weighed 500 pounds or more. 

The hunter who took the 847-pound bull did not give the game commission permission to release his name. The 621-pound antlerless elk was taken Nov. 4 by Timothy Mazol, of Danville
