Winter Survival...


With the ground covered with snow wildlife must find ways to eat. With the snow cover we have in South Central Pa. that can become a difficult task. In Elk County the snow cover is not as bad and the elk were having no problems pawing at the ground to find food. These two decided to take an easier approach and eat from the cover that was not under snow. I also seen elk eating from feeders in peoples yards and corn that was left out for them. I have read articles on artificial feeding of the elk and the drawback to this but I am not educated enough to speak of it here. This recent trip north did nothing but wet my appetite for getting out and photographing more wildlife. I am looking forward to the coming year and many trips to SNP for the arrival of the fawns and the bucks in velvet. I love summer but after scheduling a week of vacation during the elk rut I can't wait to get back into the woods and here the sounds.
