I’m always excited to share the videos I find, but today’s might be my all-time favorite. I’ve never seen anything quite like it.

Chris Burandt was hunting with his friend at Hill Guides & Outfitters in Parshall, Colorado, when a herd of elk swarmed his location.

He stayed perfectly still and watched the herd for about 15 minutes. One cow even approached him and sniffed his backpack!


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

Eventually, the cow gets spooked and the herd bolts. But not before Chris has a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

They played the wind perfectly, and whatever cover scent they were using seems to be working flawlessly.

Pardon me while I book a flight to Colorado.
