In the video, Greenly describes the scene to his tour group. He explained how “hunts like these could go on for like five hours.” The wolves can be seen circling the two bull elk, as the elk attempt to defend their space and protect themselves from an attack.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Greenly, “not only are you seeing wolves but you are watching them hunt right now.”

Greenly is a guide for Jackson Hole EcoTour Adventures.
