I'm referring to the first shot on this video.
good long range video
Here's a question for ya: Is that elk looking AT
them or just IN
their direction before he turns to walk off?. Also, notice the time delay between the "bark" and the elk hearing it.
Was there enough movement setting up for the shot both rifle and video camera, with those nifty reflective orange caps for the bull to really take notice of them? If he was looking @ them, were they too far away to be of concern to the bull? Did the bull even see them?
Would you have taken that
shot from a sitting position?
Your thoughts please
Me thinks that in Idaho that 'bark' would have put the bull into high gear instead of stopping him. I'd do a whistle instead.
