Pennsylvania Elk Rut 2009

I spent the last three days intensively photographing the Pennsylvania Elk Rut. With memory cards full and my butt dragging I will keep tonight’s post short and will expound upon the experience in greater detail later.

The trip was fantastic and only after I have time to closely review my images will I be able to ascertain the number of different bulls photographed. The elk rut is in full swing with bulls moving constantly across the food plots throughout the mornings and evenings and continuing the activity in the woods during the day.

More to come but for now I’m headed to bed for a good nights sleep

Coy, I hope you saved some for me next week. I guess Willard will have plenty to fill me in on. I can't wait, it is like being a kid at Christmas again.

By the way great bull.

Hi Coy! It was great meeting you this week on the elk range! I, too, had a great time photographing the elk--up by 5:30 each morning and out until after dark--it doesn't get any better than this. Our last day, Thursday, was our best day. And we saw the one-antlered bull that was rescued from the swing. You have some great photos here! I hope to see more of them soon and I look forward to meeting you again up in Elk County!
