I have hunted elk for more than thirty years now .. and i still giggle when i someone talking about bugling in a big bull elk.... the truth be known .. a bull elk will come to and be a lot more vocal to a good cow call ... yes thats right ,,, a bull elk would rather look for a sweet heart than a fight with another bull.. and if its the heard bull your looking for ... not a chance that hes bring his ladies to a fight he could loose ... ..but not if he hears a lone sweet heart ..( cow) hes will sneek right in.. moral of the story... bugle to locate them then just cow call... 9 times outta 10 he will run right up to you...

Maybe thats why I haven't had the best luck elk hunting,I've never used a cow call I always used the bugle.I'm going down to pincher creek this fall for elk maybe I do the cow calling and not worry so much about the bugle.

Elk is one of the big animals that I have on a list to harvest one day. Just got to save the money for an trip one of these years.

Going to try and harvest an bull moose with archery gear next year if I draw an tag, I'm lucky enough to have moose not very far from my home(2hrs drive).

Of course it will be with archery tackle as that is pretty much all I hunt with anymore, inless it is my smokepole.

Elk is one of my dream hunts. Just think of all that meat! I'd let the outfitter or guide (whichever works out) have the head for their lodge just so I can get all that delicious meat!
