WA Elk Rut Video
« on: April 02, 2018, 07:59:38 AM »
In 2016 I decided to film a friend’s WA muzzleloader elk hunt not knowing what a fun hunt it would be. Timing was perfect and we were surrounded by rut action. I will never forget it.

Below is the film I made from that hunt. I hope it gets you excited for Fall! I also have a WA Spring Bear film and another WA Elk film on the page. If you want to see more films go here: https://m.youtube.com/theheartofhunting?sub_confirmation=1

Like it or Share it on social media if you enjoyed it! That positive feedback keeps me going.

I just started having trouble too! Probably because it's hunting... Is it giving you a 500 Internal Error? Did some searching and it looks like YouTube is fixing it.

He said he didn't know the brand but purchased it at the Oregon Sportsman Show? Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Thank you! I have a few more to release this Spring. Trying to plan what hunts I'm filming this year.

Those screaming bulls were awesome. Something dreams are made of!

Thanks! That last bull he passed with the shorter tines was pretty nifty looking. Very tempting for sure!
