You’ll hold your breath watching this elk hunting video.
In the clip below, a huge bull elk sneaks up on a bowhunter crouched in a snowy forest. The hunter has no choice but to remain as still as possible while the bull stares him down from a couple feet away.
I imagine the bull thinking something like, “Hey, guy. Yeah, about that thing you’re holding in your hands there. Yeah…what were you gonna do with that? Hmmm?”
Watch what happens.
MORE BIG GAME CLOSE CALLS: This is one of the most intense bear hunt bear hunting videos we’ve ever seen.
There’s no audio in the video, so who knows what scared off the elk. What I do know is that the hunter has huevos made of pure steel.
I hope his gear bag included a change of underwear.
