Elk, South of Renovo

Heard that a bunch of guys saw some elk this past month off Swamp Branch Road in Sproul State Forest.
Anyone else hear anything? I know for a fact there was a bull with some cows near DeHass road a few years back, but they went back north across the Susquehanna that fall.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,

Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

Possible. Don't see them staying around there though. If they could live anywhere up there, it would be in the old strip mines on the private land around Beech Creek Road. They need open fields/food plots.
Maybe they are feeding on the Anadarko pads? lol

Not a lot of openings in that area, gas line is about it. Suppose that could feed a small number.

I do a lot of trout fishing in that region and have never seen an elk there. But if they are showing up there, that's great, I hope I see one.

There are some additional "openings" being created in that area, that's for sure.

Re: Elk, South of Renovo

we saw a few elk just outside of Lock Haven, but that was about 4yrs ago now. Whether they are still there, I have no idea, but there is no doubt they move south of Renovo at times.

There are elk south of the Shawville plant that move around a bit. The sightings in the Lock Haven area are usually that group of elk.
