From the Colorado Division of Wildlife
-- Big game hunters can now experience Colorado elk hunting by immersing themselves in "Elk Camp Colorado," the latest online video from the Colorado Division of Wildlife.
Filmed in high-definition video and recorded in digital audio, "Elk Camp Colorado" takes viewers deep into Colorado's backcountry. It captures a time-honored big game hunting tradition, the elk camp.
The 12-minute video also provides a wealth of information to assist hunters, including overviews of Colorado's big game hunting regulations and license application process.
"This video is a wonderful tool to help people get started and teach them how to be more successful on hunts," said Tyler Baskfield, Department of Wildlife communications manager. From the haunting bugle of a wild bull elk to the camaraderie shared by friends exchanging hunting stories around a campfire, "Elk Camp Colorado" encompasses the hunt with spectacular fall scenery and wildlife imagery.
The video also introduces viewers to the Natural Diversity Information Source mapping system. Available on the Colorado Division of Wildlife website, the NDIS incorporates statewide hunting statistics, up-to-date Game Management Unit boundaries, USGS maps and other necessary information for big game hunters.
To play "Elk Camp Colorado" and other Division of Wildlife online videos, viewers need high speed internet connections and the latest version of Adobe Flash installed on their computers.
Hunters may view "Elk Camp Colorado" on page 14 of the new 2010 Big Game Regulations e-brochure. The interactive brochure allows readers to access Colorado's big game regulations and supplemental, embedded video content.
