When I first watched this video I was thinking to myself that it was another stupid touron video.

But I watched it a couple more times and changed my position because it's not like this guy went out and tried riding the elk or ran after it trying to pet it. He was just hanging out next to his truck and this elk was just a little curious I suppose.

With that being said, I personally don't think that I would be brave enough to let an elk get within 30 yards of me just because I've seen videos where the interaction doesn't go quite as peacefully as this one did.

My advice? Enjoy nature and it's animals from a distance!
