Starting in 1913 the Game Commission began to restore elk in Pennsylvania so that today there are more than 600 – the largest herd in northeastern United States. Most times of the year are good to catch sight of these beautiful, massive animals in the wilds, but the best times of the day are early morning and late in the day, just before dark.
