Photographing the Pennsylvania elk rut has become the outdoor highlight of the year for a great many people. Pennsylvania has a growing elk herd that currently draws thousands of people to the elk range each autumn to enjoy observing the frantic activity of the elk rut.
I was originally planning to spend a few days each of the last two weeks of September in the elk range. Problems arose causing a change of plans but finally I was able to get two days free. Of course with my luck it began to rain as I approached Benezette Tuesday morning. The light rain turned to a downpour by afternoon causing flooding during the night. By morning the rain became light allowing a good morning of photography before my departure of home after lunch.
While the trip was short and rainy I returned happy with the outcome, some decent elk photos and a chance to catch up with photog friends like Odie, Buckwheat, Charlie, Tom, Dave. I was also a pleasure to meet fellow outdoor blogger Dan Gomola.
