The peak season to see an elk in Pennsylvania’s elk country is between Labor Day and Columbus Day.
“Our current population is probably somewhere a little over 1,000 elk,” wildlife conservation officer Jason Wagner, told WJAC-TV. “State game lands 311 in the heart of Elk County, and here, we’ve have probably the largest sub-population of elk. There is between 200 and 300, so if you’re looking for a place to see an elk, that’s the place to go.”
One of the best places to see elk is Winslow Hill, an area where the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has carried out quite a bit of conservation work.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission also provides a live stream of elk country in north-central Pennsylvania.
