We Could Watch This Bull Elk Play in a Mud Puddle All Day

There’s nothing better than splashing in a mud puddle, especially if you’re a bull elk. This is a great reminder never to take yourself TOO seriously.

We here at Wide Open Spaces LOVE trail camera captures. One thing about these covert cameras is, you just never know what you may catch on film. And in the case of this big bull elk, it’s definitely a muddy good time.

This video footage comes from Idaho, and reminds us of another great clip we have featured, showing an equally majestic bull elk enjoying a soupy mud-and-water mixture. Whether the bull in the clip that follows is working one of his wallow pits, or simply having a bit of fun, remains to be seen. Either way, it’s pretty awesome to watch.

Here’s the video: 

Only thing that would make this clip more amazing is if this majestic animal let out a long bugle. Now that is special.

There’s something about elk that we just love. And this clip certainly reinforces that.
