UTAH — Hunters, hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts may comb the hills of Utah for hours for a glimpse of an elk, but footage from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources lets you see some impressive specimens in just a few minutes.

Scott Root with the Utah DWR compiled several minutes of video from a trail camera, which shows everything from bull elk with broad antlers to groups of animals with young ones in tow.
