Watch a Thrilling Herd Bull Hunt During the Peak of the Utah Elk Rut [VIDEO]

Two master hunters pursue an elk herd bull in Utah’s Wasatch mountains in this exciting episode of Steve’s Outdoor Adventures.

Steve West is one of the world’s top consultants on North American big game hunting. West is also the host of “Steve’s Outdoor Adventures“, a big-game hunting program that airs on the Outdoor Channel. The show follows West’s pursuit of western North America’s biggest trophy game animals.

In this episode, West heads to Utah for a guided hunt during the late September elk rut.

West and his guide are off to a good start on their first morning, as they pursue a herd bull up a mountainside. They can hear the bull’s mighty bugle up the forested slope, but they can’t see him.

One by one, West calls in satellite bulls to get closer and closer to the head of the herd. But when he and his guide finally get close enough to coax out the mighty beast, they get quite a surprise instead.

Stay tuned for part two, in which West and his guide track down some truly magnificent Utah bull elk.

When West isn’t filming his show, he leads guided hunting, fishing and safari trips. For more information, visit his website.
