Video: motorist captures 200 elk on the run

WILDLIFE — This video might hurt your feelings if you couldn't find an elk during the hunting season. But it will at least give you hope.

According to the Idaho Fish and Game Department, Josh Hoisington was heading home from a fishing trip this fall and captured video of a large herd of around 200 elk on the run.

“There was a youth hunt going on. A hunter on the west ridge pushed them down into the valley and across the road. There was also a coyote flanking the herd as well. He was running full tilt, but you can’t see him in the video.”

Hoisington moved to Idaho from Colorado just one year ago. His first year in Idaho has also included a successful elk hunt and lots of fishing.
