The man who took this video nearly got trampled for his troubles, but that didn’t mean he stopped filming. At mere feet away—and at one point only inches—from two large bull elk duking it out for dominance, this has to be one of the closest videos we’ve seen.

    That is the best elk video I have seen and I have been hunting elk for years.

  • Cat Hill

    Very cute, but I could hardly hear it over my African Grey parrot laughing in the background, lol

  • Jeff Klingner

    Had two bucks battling outside of our hunting shack last year with the doe less than 10 yards away. Very intense and amazing that they could care less about 4 guys standing around them and ducking behind trucks when they came close, wish i got a video of it.
