Fall is a great time of the year for photography with the changing of the leaves, the brisk air, and time for a trip down to elk country. I write about the Pennsylvania Elk quite often, mainly because I find them one of the better photo opportunities in the area. I just canâ€™t get enough of them. I know some residents of the Benezette area arenâ€™t too thrilled about the fall season. The Elk rut attracts countless sightseers, the traffic, the noise, and yes, those pesky wildlife photographers.
