Biologists are using net guns to catch elk and deer for the purpose of studying them.
Traditional tranquilizer guns can lead to a long recovery for the animals, and cause undue harm. Once the elk is tangled in the net two guys jump on her. First they cover her face to calm her down then put on the collar. Once the collar has been put on, they must carefully take off the net and let her go without being attacked. It has the potential to be a lot of fun and very dangerous.
