Today we take a break from the controversial subjects and take a look at what proved to be the dominant bull at the Gilbert Viewing Area during my recent trip to Pennsylvania's Elk Country.
The following photos were taken with a Canon 40-D with Canon 500mmF4 L lens and 1.4x extender.
On another positive note, it seems that serious interest in photographing the elk herd is increasing rapidly. Only a few short years ago, it was a rarity to see the long, top end lenses deployed on Winslow Hill, but they were there in plenty this year. In fact I probably saw more in two weeks this year, than I have in the previous ten years added together. This indicates that contrary to statements from naysayers that the Pennsylvania Wilds Program is a failure, that it is in fact succeeding in attracting visitors from a wider area, and also drawing more serious photographers.
