Just got back from 3 days up in PA chasing elk, this was the 3rd year and it's turned into something I really look forward to. Hiked back in before daylight Sat and caught this guy walking this colorful ridge line just as it got light. Then the sky opened up and it started to pour, you can see the gray of the rain in the valley behind him! It was all worth it for this one shot...

The rain in the background and the fall colors really add to the shot.  Like the foreground as well!  Great work Joe!

 Thanks again everyone. Jay they are free ranging and hunted a little info below...

History of Pennsylvania Elk
Through the early 1800s, elk (Cervus elaphus) inhabited much of Pennsylvania. In the mid-1800s, as human settlements increased, the elk population declined. By the late 1800s, elk had been totally eliminated from their last stronghold in areas around Elk County.
In 1913, the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) began reintroducing elk. Elk from Yellowstone National Park, South Dakota, and a private preserve in Pennsylvania were released until 1926. During this time, 177 elk were released into the central and northeastern parts of Pennsylvania, but only the northcentral population survived. From 1923 to 1931 a hunting season took place. Hunters took 98 bulls; another 78 elk were killed illegally or for crop damage. The season was closed in 1932 due to dwindling numbers of elk. The elk roaming the mountains of Northcentral Pennsylvania today are the progeny of the animals that remained.
Today, Pennsylvania is home to 800 - 900 elk — the largest herd in northeast United States. Elk can be found in parts of Elk, Cameron, Clearfield, Clinton and Potter counties, inhabiting more than 800 square miles.

Joe, I hunted around Potter & Cameron counties for 16 years. On way to camp we would
stop at a small campground to see the Elk. Always a highlight of the trip.
