Video: Bowhunting Bull Elk in Idaho


Big Idaho bulls!

From Stuck N The Rut:

“Bowhunting elk. This is a continuation from Episode 34. After Travis shoots the bear, we skin it out and continue our elk hunt. As we get to the top, we hear the bull on the other side of the mountain bugling, but because he had a herd of cows, he refused to come in. After a couple hours of bugling, we decided to move into his territory without bugling (the silent treatment). As we moved closer, we heard him bugle again. After getting within 150 yards from the bull, Travis stayed put and Tom moved in with his bow closer. Tom found a good spot to set up with his bow, and so Travis challenged the herd bull to fight. You’ll need to watch the video to see what happens. This is what elk hunting is all about. This is two brothers DIY on public hunting ground.

More Pennsylvania Elk Country Protected, Open to Public Access

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

MISSOULA, Mont.—Another piece of Pennsylvania elk country is permanently protected and open to public access thanks to a collaborative effort by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC).

The Woodring Farm II project entails 37 acres and is the newest addition to State Game Lands 311. It is located near a project finalized in 2014 and marks the 13th RMEF land protection and access project in Pennsylvania elk country.

“Even though these three parcels amount to just 37 acres, every piece of the puzzle counts in expanding the total amount of elk habitat acreage protected in Pennsylvania,” said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer. “We appreciate our partners at the Pennsylvania Game Commission as well as RMEF members and volunteers for their continual support.”

The property lies within the heart of the Pennsylvania elk range in Elk County’s Benezette Township which boasts the highest elk population density in the state.

“This acquisition is critical as it protects a very popular public corridor for elk viewing.  Public visitation to these viewing areas increases every year,” said Bryan Burhans, PGC executive director. “However, high-quality elk range is finite. This area is now protected perpetually thanks to our partners at RMEF and an anonymous donor.”

Funds generated from Pennsylvania elk tags and the anonymous donation to RMEF provided funding for the project.

Since 1991, RMEF and its partners completed 425 conservation and hunting heritage outreach projects in Pennsylvania with a combined value of more than $25 million. These projects protected or enhanced 26,907 acres of habitat and opened or improved public access to 10,152 acres.

About the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation:

Founded over 30 years ago, fueled by hunters and a membership of more than 227,000 strong, RMEF has conserved more than 7.3 million acres for elk and other wildlife. RMEF also works to open and improve public access, fund and advocate for science-based resource management, and ensure the future of America’s hunting heritage.

A Colorado bull elk hunt is definitely up there on many-a-hunter’s lists!

From Eastmans’:

“Guy Eastman hunts a nontypical Colorado elk. Antler growth is strong after a wet spring making for great fall hunting opportunity. Fall rain showers add to the advantage creating the perfect conditions for stalking and hunting elk.”

Video: Muzzleloader Hunting Big Bull Elk


Finally getting that elk tag!

From the video maker:

“After 11 years of waiting to draw this muzzleloader elk tag, Chris quickly began scouting with his hunting buddies to put in the work this tag deserved. With several good bulls on the trail camera, opening morning couldn’t come quick enough. The first day was full of close encounters only to have the second day go silent after the elk were pushed further down. Join Chris as he looks to shoot a big old bull on his hunt!”

Video: Hunting Bull Elk in New Mexico


New Mexico is the home of some big bull elk, and this is the focus of a video from Randy Newberg.

From Randy Newberg:

“Leupold’s Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg launches Season 6 with a 2017 New Mexico elk hunt with Tracey and Bruce Pettet. Bruce is the CEO of Leupold Optics and frequent guest on Fresh Tracks.

On this hunt, business commitments have reduced the hunt from 5 days to 3 days. With a limited time, it is decided that Tracey has first shot.

As is often the case on public land hunts, elk are pressured and other hunters abound. Undeterred, Tracey pushes on, hiking canyons, burns, and mountains in hopes that her first bull elk will become a reality.”
