Video: World-Class Elk Battle


If this video doesn’t get you cranked up for big game hunting, nothing will.

During Labor Day weekend near Jasper, Alberta, Stephen Dana captured this footage of two monster bull elk deciding who’s boss. The one on the left at the beginning of the clip appears to be a 7×9, and the one on the right, which has darker and perhaps slightly smaller frame, is still no slouch – it’s difficult to tell from this video, but he is either a 7×7 or maybe a 7×8.
