Joan and I spend a lot of time in the outdoors photographing animals in the wild. We have been visiting the Benezett area for the past two years through the year to photograph the Pennsylvania elk. We have found this elk herd for be very docile and acclimated to humans. Opening and closing of car doors, people talking and laughing, babies crying do not seem to disturb or bother them at all. We last visited on the weekend of October 24 and 25 just before Pa Elk Season opened. I was amazed that the bulls were so docile. We watched four different bulls. They were what most hunters would consider trophy quality. These bulls seemed oblivious to people being around. They were in the kill zone and we photographed them eating, resting, fighting. All the while we stood and watched the bulls, people were parking their cars along the road, slamming doors, talking and it did not phase the elk at all.
