It’s November 22nd, and I’m still stumbling across videos of idiots messing with elk during the rut season. I just don’t get it at this point.
Here’s a pretty easy rule to follow to avoid finding yourself being written about on Unofficial Networks when it comes to an elk interaction- If you see a big bull elk strutting around in the months of September, October, November just stay the hell away from it. I don’t care if you want a once-in-a-lifetime photo. You will get charged, and you could get hurt.
These people are lucky they were driving a beater van, but they’re still dumb for continuing to drive closer to this clearly-agitated elk.
