Watch as this bugling bull elk puts a new spin on ‘in your face!’
A mature bull elk is an imposing animal. Averaging 700 pounds in weight and standing 5 feet tall at the shoulder, this is one ornery fella you don’t want to mess with. While on a hunt recently, Jay Scott almost got stepped on – and the footage is pretty amazing.
While working a cow call, Scott expertly draws in a bull elk. Closer. Closer. Closer. OK, that’s close enough! I don’t know about you, but I would have had a hard time keeping my composure. I’ll let you judge for yourself.
The sound of a bugling elk is enough to send shivers down the spine – certainly one of the most recognizable sounds in the woods.
Do you think it was a wise idea to keep calling in a bull elk if the intention wasn’t there to take a shot? Regardless, it certainly made for some ‘in your face’ footage that was thrilling to watch.
