It’s opening morning. The sun breaks the horizon to reveal a crisp mountainside sparkling with frost. A distant bugle harkens the beginning of an unpredictable pilgrimage. The western elk rut has taken hold of the landscape, and it’s a hunter’s task to overcome the odds and seize an opportunity. A second bugle, deep and growling, gets the adrenaline pumping and muscles twitching as base camp fades into the background and the hunt commences. To harvest a bull over 350” is a challenge elk hunters relish. Hunting the peak of the rut is a thrill in itself, but a determined hunter adapts to the circumstances nature provides. Join seven driven elk hunters as they tackle the rugged Rocky Mountain landscape to beat the odds and bring home a trophy. Hunting FROM THE PRE-RUT, PEAK RUT AND POST-RUT CONDITIONS in four western states is an unforgettable journey in an attempt to achieve the ultimate harvest.
