Video: Bowhunter enjoys close encounter with bull elk

Montana Bull Elk Taking it out on a Tree from Bob Legasa on Vimeo.

HUNTING — North Idaho bowhunter Bob Legasa was in postion to put a nice bull elk in the freezer a couple weeks ago when it came to the calls of his hunting partner.  

But when he realized the elk was a hair smaller than the bull he wanted to tag this fall, he relaxed his bow and enjoyed the thrill of being 15 yards of a 600-pound animal with raging hormones.
