Not a Hunter? Go See the Elk Anyway!

Wildlife brings pleasure to everyone, and is everyone's responsibility. Surprisingly, few people are aware that one of the great wildlife viewing opportunities is very close to home here in northwest Pennsylvania. You can get an up-close look at Rocky Mountain elk, and you don't have to visit a game farm or pay big bucks for a tour.

These animals are wild, and very accessible. If you life in driving distance of Elk County, Pennsylvania, don't miss out on a memorable experience in elk country. In fact, today's column appears in plenty of time for you to plan a trip and see elk at their most exciting time of the year. Get the details in my July 29 column in the Jamestown Gazette, "Not a Hunter? Go See the Elk Anyway!"
