‘Tis the season. Elk are about to ramp up their activity in a big way with the annual rut so the Pennsylvania Game Commission fired up its PA Elk Game Cam. The live links allows viewers to try to view and listen to elk, deer, turkey or other wildlife from their computers or portable devices.
“Elk are fascinating animals and the spectacle of their bugling season draws plenty of onlookers, sometimes from hundreds of miles away,” said Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans. “That same dynamic is what makes the Elk Cam so popular with viewers. And the Game Commission is proud to bring it back for yet another run.”
Located in State Game Lands 311 in Elk Country, the PA Game Elk Cam is slated to run until the end of the bugling season, likely sometime in mid-October. The top time to see elk on camera is late in the afternoon.
There are approximately 1,300 wild, free-ranging elk in Pennsylvania.
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has a long, active history in the Keystone State. Dating back to 1991, RMEF and its partners completed 524 conservation and hunting heritage outreach projects in Pennsylvania with a combined value of more than $27.8 million. These projects conserved and enhanced 27,957 acres of habitat and opened or improved public access to 10,189 acres.
