|Mature Bull Herds Cows During Peak Of The Rut|
I arrived in Pennsylvania Elk Country just as a northwest cold front was moving through on Sunday afternoon. Elk enthusiasts who were there all last week said that activity was good earlier in the week, but crashed as the weather got warm later in the week. With the passing of the cold front; however, activity exploded again and it was very intense for a few days.
I took mostly video for the first few days of the trip, but on Wednesday evening several bulls were working a herd of cows in ideal lighting conditions for still photography so I broke out the Canon 5D MK III with the 600mm f4 lens and the 70D with the 300mm f 2.8 and took the photos used in today's post. At first only one bull was present, but soon more arrived on the scene.
