Close encounters often happen when your elk hunting, but this guy almost got stepped on!
In this vintage elk hunting footage from 1990 (does that make you feel old?), the cameraman is filming a bull elk bugling and looking for a potential mate, but the next thing he knows… the bull is literally right on top of him.
You never know what’s going to happen when your out there in the woods, and that’s probably a big reason we like to get out there and hunt. Many wild animal encounters are very unpredictable, and trying to get close enough for shot is a challenge hunters enjoy.
I’m pretty sure this ranks pretty close to the top for close encounters with a bull elk.
You can’t say that happens too often.
