Elk Licks Hunter’s Backpack [VIDEO]

It’s pretty much the scenario elk hunters dream about all year long in the days leading up to September. Bow in hand, surrounded by elk. And the elk even get close enough to touch!

Does it get any better?

How close is too close?

Watch as one hunter finds himself in this very situation while in pursuit of elk out west. A bull pushes his cows right up into the hunter’s lap. One cow even sniffs and nuzzles the hunter’s backpack.

Check out the video…

Probably one of the coolest things I've ever experienced!! Me and my long time hunting buddy Hill Guides & Outfitters sat here for 15 minutes watching this group of elk do what they do. Watching the bull hearding his cows this close was incredible. I'd say the new #subalpine Sitka Gear is the real deal!!! Who knew elk liked Kifaru, International backpacks too 😂😂 #livingelkcountry #sickforit Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

Too close for comfort? Nah, just another day in elk country. I’d say the new SUBALPINE camo from Sitka seems to work pretty well at fooling the eyes of the wild wapiti at close range.

What about you? What’s the closest you’ve ever been to wild game? Comment below and let us know.
