Pennsylvania Elk 2010


This young bull fed to withing a few yards of my position before bedding up for the day.


Not large by Pennsylvania standards; the symmetrical 6X6 antlers signify that this bull may have the potential to become an outstanding animal given a few more years to mature.  The photographs of this bull were taken in the hollow below the Porcupine Run - Winslow Hill viewing area merely yards from the boundary of elk hunt zone two.


Although I mostly find myself photographing bulls during my visits to Pennsylvania's Elk Country I do not pass up a good calf shot when it presents.

Amazing shots! And that Header photo is just breathtaking!!! Love the little Calf too. He's looking pretty intently at something. Coy, I soooo enjoy your blog. I should get my husband to take me to your Elk Viewing area someday for the kind of photo-ops you get! I would LOVE that.
