Some wacky footage has recently surfaced of an elk in love. This footage was taken east of Ovando on Hwy. 200. The bull is obviously habituated and a little in love. One of our biologists was coming through about the same time and stopped. The bull tried to stick his head in through the window and started rocking the car by pushing with his antlers. This one won’t last long.
So why can’t I find a bull like this when I’m hunting…?
According to the YouTube description from Heather Leigh
On Sunday, October 3rd, my boyfriend Glen and I decided to take a ride from Missoula, MT to Ovando, MT. On our way back, we headed south on hwy 200. We stopped behind the truck and saw a bull elk approach the truck. The person in the truck must have had some food because the elk jumped up on his hind legs and peered in to the drivers window. (I have that on video as well) Then the elk jumped down and started to approach us. The elk chased us for a while and I don’t know when he would have stopped hadn’t I told Glen to lose it.
