|7x7 Along Winslow Hill Road|
Today,s post features more photos of bull elk from the mid-June trip to Pennsylvania Elk Country. While I saw several cows and calves it seemed that bulls were much easier to see and photograph. Some had impressive antler growth, but most were young bulls such as the one in the photo below. This class of bull needs to get a few more years on him to grow truly impressive antlers, although they can look quite large to someone used to seeing only whitetail deer.
|4x4 Pauses From Grazing|
I found another 4x4 grazing in a small opening by the roadside along Dents Run Road and photographed him with the 7D MKII and the 100-400mm IS II lens.

|4X4 In Low Light-Winslow Hill Road|
The next photo was taken at 5:44 a.m. on June 15th and helps make the point that one needs to be out early. The equipment used was the 5D MKIII and 600mm F4 IS lens. It was taken at ISO 1000 at 1/60 sec. f4.5.
