Hunter Gags on Elk Poop in Hilarious How-To

Hilarious How-To

The internet is full of “how-to” videos. Most are informative and dry, but that’s not the case in this hilarious how-to video from Zach Ownes Instagram.

Since the dawn of social media, users have shared their knowledge with others through how-to videos. With hundreds of millions of users, there’s bound to be some hilarious how-to video failures around. Well, we found a great one!

Zach Owens, aka beyond_the_backcountry on Instagram, attempts to show his followers what Native Americans did with elk poop when they became dehydrated.

I wouldn’t try this if you paid me and I don’t recommend you try it:

Throwing it back to when I use to do hunting how-to's for my followers. I'm not sure why I stopped…. #themoreyouknow

That elk poop looked quite stale and dehydrated itself. I have a feeling Zach wouldn’t attempt this hilarious how-to again, but if he did I might recommend a fresher poop sample!

With all of that said, I did attempt to verify if this was or was not a real trick the Native Americans used to rehydrate. However, I didn’t have much luck. I think this one is probably best left a mystery.
