If you think driving up to your hunting site on a four-wheeler and then walking a thousand yards is tough, check out this insane video of elk bowhunting British Columbia with Marc Warnke of Outdoors International. The elk in this video hang out on the tops of rugged mountains right along with goats. In any event, these guys put in some serious work to get somewhere special, and if you’re like most elk hunters, the location might boggle your mind.

Disclosure: Reviews and Gear Links:

In addition to Man Makes Fire buying gear for reviews and guides, gear manufacturers occasionally ship review units to Man Makes Fire. If we like it, we spend some quality time with the gear and review it, noting if it was provided to Man Makes Fire. After the review, we return it, give it away, or work on longer-term review follow-ups when applicable to reader interest.

We do not accept any gear in exchange for coverage. If we do not truly appreciate the gear, we don't write about it at all -- bad gear will fade into obscurity on its own if everyone ignores it. In addition, we focus on gear from reputable companies, reputable brands, and reputable retailers that we trust.

The gear links on Man Makes Fire are focused on what we are willing to recommend to our own family and friends. Many of our specific gear links connect to industry-standard affiliate advertising programs. When you buy something using the retail links in our guides and reviews, we may earn a small affiliate commission that helps pay for our work.

Basically, we deliver the advice and insight you need, you get the gear you want, and then everyone wins. Pretty straightforward.

  1. Patience, is the lesson. I was amazed that the bull stopped after the initial spook. The bulls I have spooked have taken off without a glance back. On a hunt outside Mount Rainier the elk went up and down some amazing cliffs just like in this video. Keep hunting.
