Elk Are Screaming in PA!!!!

I was up at our camp (Karthaus, PA) the weekend of the 8th as well as last weekend. Elk are rutting big time!!! Saw 12 different bulls Sunday morning alone! I love the sound of an elk bugle at sunrise, that is how you know you are alive!

Re: Elk Are Screaming in PA!!!!

Wife and I are planing on heading up on Monday. Will go through Karthaus up the,Quehanna Highway ending up at Benezette a little after sunrise. Will come home by Renovo, then 144 to Snow Shoe, need to stop at camp off 144 Ridge Road to retrieve a pair of shoes I left there last week. Should be a nice trip in the mountains, looking forward to it.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

LOL.I spent two days up in Bennezette of this past weekend with my kids and our horses.I can't tell you how many miles we covered over those mountains on horseback and we never heard a single bugle.

Re: Elk Are Screaming in PA!!!!

You gotta be up and out there at first light and then dust. But first light is by far the best.

Check out my cousin's website for his photography. The elk photos are mainly from those two weekends. There are a couple from this spring. www.wildlifephotoaddict.com

Re: Elk Are Screaming in PA!!!!

Nah,It was a good trip.We were actually camping in a bad spot.There's just not alot of open areas where we were at.We camped on the right before you hit the Bennezette store and crossed the creek to ride.The ride itself was awesome but we only saw one elk and one bear.I was hoping to see some more elk and have the kids hear some bugling but we were there for the ride.The trails on that side are pretty fun.Lots of steep places and lots of obstacles to really test the horses.I talked to some people that said there was some bugling close to the campround the night before.My one buddy was up at his camp in Sinnemahoning at the same time and said that they had bulls keeping them up all night.

The elk up near Benezette are really feisty this year!
This one is almost unbelievable...an elk challenging the bronze statue at the Elk Country Visitor Center. pic.twitter.com/a4HssSUi
