Video: Bowhunting for Elk in the Wasatch Mountains of Northern Utah


Zac Griffith goes hard for his big game. In this video, Griffith explores the Wasatch Mountains in Utah for bull elk.

From Griffith:

“My name is Zac Griffith and this is a film of my Utah archery elk hunt. The Wasatch Mountains of Northern Utah have fascinated me since my childhood. I learned to ski and hunt on these towers that shade the Salt Lake Valley. Rising near 7,000 ft in less than a few miles, the front holds some of the most rugged and remote urban terrain anywhere on Earth.

I choose this range every December as host to an annual tradition; a late season, public land archery hunt for bull elk. Deep snow, sub-zero temps, extreme elevations and high winds combine in a recipe for disaster to a bowhunter. Despite the obstacles stacked against us, my closest bow hunting allies and I venture here yearly with high hopes.

Long hikes, chilly stalks and close calls to follow!”
