ELK calling and experiences


Recommended Posts

I will be hitting CO this fall for ELK (YEEEEHAAAAAAA!). I am researching elk hunting and elk calling. Tell me some stories of your elk hunting adventures and elk calling experiences, including which calls you used. I have been researching elk and elk hunting for about 2 years, just looking for specific info on what has worked or not worked for you. Thanks.

i'm assuming you're going out bow hunting?

i would suggest that you learn to use a mouth reed. keeps your hands free if need be. i've been around many elk, i have bugled them in and cow called them in. kind of depends how much hunting presure you'll be around. if you're going with a buddy try and tag team them. one guy call the other shoot, this seems to work best for me.

it's a heck of a rush when you here an elk bugle so be careful, you might get goose bumps... wink.gif

Thanks youse guys.

I've got the Hoochie Mama and Primo's Elk calling Kit which came with a short bugle call, an open single reed call and the lead cow and calf call. Apparently someone stole the mouth diaphragm out of the package at the store. I bought an elk diaphragm call set from Primos which has Palate-Plate calls (a little plate above the reed that helps position the call and eliminate the gag reflex) and a Primos "Learning elk calls" CD. I'm getting better everyday...and I only have 7 months or so to practice!

From what I've read, I'll stick primarily to cow calling.

don't know about the goose bumps, I just hope he's not bugling from 15 ft behind me and I end up needing "Oops, I crapped my pants" adult diapers!

Can't wait!
