It states, west of Scranton. Probably 1000 miles west I'm sure. The eastern elk was extinct by then and the Rocky Mountain elk was not was not introduced until 1913.
Its great that you remember. When I was a tot, Dad used to take us to watch slim feed the deer bread. We did not have deer in the city back then and this was a really enjoyable for me. I can still remember him whistling in a piebald 8 pointer. Back in the 70's that was a big buck for that area. Lol on the hunters whistling.Laylow said:Yep I remember seeing Slim. He's whistle and the deer would come in and he'd feed them bread. I have a picture also of him some where. They said during deer season all you could hear where hunters whistling around that area trying to call in a deer.
