I'm planning a backpacking trip this fall, and I want to try to time so that I catch some bugling. I looked around online and haven't had any luck finding an answer to this question. I know it's dependent on weather and other factors, but if I could get it narrowed down to a period of a few weeks, that would help. Also, my first thought was to start near Medix Run and hike east on the Northern Loop of the Quehanna Trail, using connectors and side trails to cut south and then back west to make a loop - I don't have time this trip to hike the whole Quehanna. The Elk Trail north of Benezette also looks interesting, so I'm considering hiking that instead, using some logging roads and the Thunder Mountain Horse Trails to create a loop. Any suggestions on which might be a better choice for seeing elk?
