A South Dakota hunter just shared a video of one of his most epic backcountry encounters, but it didn't happen in the Dakotas. It's 2 huge bull elk that he came face-to-snout with in Wyoming's Bighorns.
When I think of my favorite viral moments from Yellowstone National Park, this is among the best of the best. It's that fun time when a bull elk took a severe dislike to a snowmobile and decided to challenge it (and everything else) to a fight.
I had completely forgotten about this hilarious moment. It's only funny because no one was injured, but a video of a Yellowstone elk scaring a man into a corral area has gone viral again and it's worth reliving.
Rock Springs resident Christian J. Cosby will pay over $5,000 in fines and have his hunting and fishing privileges suspended for two years, after pleading guilty to the intentional illegal taking of a bull elk in 2017 and taking a mountain lion with an illegal caliber firearm in 2018
