There's nothing more intoxicating that a bull elk bugling. This video has a ton of it!
Of all of the sounds in nature, none are more recognizable or spine-tingly cool than that of a bull elk bugling. The piercing crescendos reverberate and echo throughout the forest; a magical sound that is surely capable of giving a bad case of the goosebumps to those listening.
This public land hunt in New Mexico has all the makings of cinematic superiority. From the fog-enshrouded forest, to the mysterious and surreal landscape, and the highlight itself, that of a bull elk 'singing.'
Here's the epic footage. Ensure your speakers are turned up:
Don't you just love how that bull elk dropped almost immediately? Talk about a kill shot.
Although we only catch a fleeting glimpse of the elk, what really hits home is the raw emotion that overcomes the hunter. That's as real as it comes. And that's what hunting is all about.
