Good stuff Woody.
BTW, I mirror the sentiments of those photographers 100%. I won't go any further with this as not to ruffle any feathers.

Some feathers need to be ruffled. Back in the 1970s when there were probably less than 75 elk in Pennsylvania it seemed that the Game Commission considered them a nuisance and just wished they'd go away. As pressure to keep an elk herd in PA built, and the economic value of the herd also built, active management began. Once the herd increased to over 500 pressure developed to open a hunting season. Now the herd (1000 animals +/-) is a cash cow for the local economy. But the influx of tourists has created problems for some of the local people. Shooting of some of the habituated animals has created PR issues for the Game Commission which only restricts hunting from a small area that is, for all practical purposes, entirely within sight from the developed viewing areas -- but the habituated animals don't restrict their activities to the restricted area. Beyond the current elk range there is unoccupied suitable habitat, but the goal seems to be to keep the herd from expanding.

I'll get off my soap box now.

Very interesting, Woody, and nice photos too. It's a lot harder managing people interested in elk than elk themselves.
