You never know what you’re going to see when you get out there.
They were out on a hunt, looking for game. For these bros, it’s something they do.
But for the animals they caught on film? This is another regular day.
From the vantage point the were watching them, they could watch both the predator and prey from that moment of first contact.
The Cougar looked like it was making a decision: Spring? Or wait and move in closer?
The Elk stood their ground, too, maybe deciding whether that noise or scent they caught was a threat or not.
All three animals stood stone-still for a moment, until the cougar made his move.
You can hear the appreciation of this amazing moment in the hushed voices of the hunters as they look on.
But, because this is real life, and not staged, there are some things the camera can catch… and some that it can’t.
Great footage, though.
The description from Montana Sportsman’s original youtube:
Out deer and elk hunting when we come across two nice Bull Elk being stalked by a large Cougar. Unfortunately, the cat pushed the elk further onto private property and we never got the chance to see them again. Just another day hunting in Montana.
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
