Evening at the Gilbert Viewing Area
While much wildlife photography requires stealth, concealment and or long hikes packing photo gear over rugged terrain none of these are required to observe and photograph Pennsylvania’s elk.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Gilbert Viewing Area, located near the intersection of Winslow Hill and Dewey Road, provides a place to park and enjoy the elk activity in the food plots while visiting with friends and striking up new acquaintances.
As these photos attest viewing and photographing elk at the Gilbert is quite popular during the rut. Here one can observe folks with all types of photography gear from the simplest point&shoot camera to DSLR’s with lenses that nearly require a second mortgage to acquire. No matter the equipment everyone is here for the same reason, to enjoy the unique experience of interacting with Pennsylvania’s Majestic Elk.
