1985 - Bowling For Soup, Covered by Word For Word

The elk-calling conundrum: answering the why, where, and how questions about calling elk.

THE BRILLIANT, LATE-MORNING SUN BLINDED MY EYES as I descended the
steep ridge and dropped into the remote spruce and pine-littered alpine
cirque. This was a place I knew well, having killed
elk
 name applied to several large members of the deer family. It most properly designates the largest member of the family, Alces alces, found in the northern regions of Eurasia and North America. In North America this animal is called moose.

 from
across the mile-wide basin interrupted my plan.

I quickly closed the distance to the bull and arrived at the far
side of the bowl in time to see a number of cow elk descending into the
timber. Without laying eyes on the bull, I set out to try to get close
enough to the herd that the fired-up bull might be enticed to come to
some sweet cow talk. He aggressively answered each time I cow-called,
allowing me to keep tabs on him as I honed in on his position in the
thick forest.

As I entered a small, timber-strewn meadow, I cow-called and the
bull screamed in response. Breaking branches and crunching pine needles
told me he was coming my way. I instinctively melted into an enormous
blue spruce tree, affixed an arrow to my string, and ranged a few trees
for
yardage

2. Cloth sold by the yard.

 before clipping my release to my string.

I gave a few excited cow calls and snapped some twigs underfoot,
which lured the bull from the protection of the forest into the meadow.
The bull stood motionless, almost broadside as my arrow entered him a
bit high. His powerful legs collapsed under him, and he briefly crashed
to the ground before getting his feet back under him. As the wounded
bull labored to get back into the black timber, my second arrow struck
him hard in the chest. The bull took only a few more unsteady steps
before he toppled over and rolled down a small hill, coming to rest
against a spruce tree. Once again, calling had proven itself a deadly
tactic for
bowhunting

 elk.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

During my first five years bowhunting elk, I toiled in vain and
failed to take one with my bow. I was frustrated to the point of giving
up. However, rather than quitting the sport I dearly loved, I decided
that improving my calling techniques was a must. In the paragraphs that
follow, I want to share some of what I've learned about calling
elk.

Why Call?

A lot of elk hunters believe that modern elk are "call
shy," and therefore opt to call
sparingly
  
adj.
1. Given to or marked by prudence and restraint in the use of material resources.

2. Deficient or limited in quantity, fullness, or extent.

3. Forbearing; lenient.
, or not at all. I
personally think that belief is erroneous. In my opinion, the most
lethal weapons in your arsenal are a bugle and a cow call, and the
knowledge of how to use them.

Elk country is big and intimidating, and you can walk within a
hundred yards of a silent elk herd and swear there isn't an animal
for a hundred miles. Bowhunters that take the time to call are often
rewarded with a response, and have a leg up on the hardest part of
killing an elk--finding one.

Also, elk are naturally curious animals, and will often investigate
the elk sounds being made by an astute hunter. To have your prey come to
you will drastically improve your odds of remaining undetected at the
extremely close distances required for an ethical bowshot. It is
infinitely easier for you to remain motionless as the elk closes the
distance, rather than attempting a risky stalk on a wary elk, or group
of elk. Call, don't chase.

Furthermore, and often overlooked, is the reality that when you
choose to call elk into
bow range

, you dictate where the encounter will
take place. You can ensure the confrontation with a bull or a cow takes
place in a spot that affords you the upper hand, including good visual
fields and shooting lanes, proper cover, and a favorable wind. The edge
that calling gives you over an elk is often the difference between
regularly obtaining backstraps for the freezer and
antlers

 for the wall,
or the bitter taste of
tag soup

.

Not only is calling wildly effective in a variety of situations,
but it is
unquestionably
  
adj.
Beyond question or doubt. See Synonyms at authentic.



un·question·a·bil
 the most exciting and exhilarating way to
bowhunt elk. Not one thing in all of bowhunting will get your adrenaline
flowing like being within spitting distance of a
slobbering

, screaming,
rut-crazed bull elk. It is precisely these point-blank, hair-raising
experiences that keep us addicted to the pursuit of these magnificent
beasts.

Where To Call?

Choosing a calling location is paramount if you are to have a
chance at killing an elk. Your calling location should provide plenty of
cover to remain unseen as you draw your bow, but not so much cover as to
inhibit your ability to see the elk or block up all the available
shooting lanes. I just recently "relearned" this truth when I
was calling for two hunting buddies, A.J. and Bill.

We set up on a steep, sage hillside, knowing there were bulls in
the quakies on the other, side of the gulch. A.J. and Bill were 70 yards
apart, and 40 yards below me in the open sage. After several minutes, my
bugles and cow calls coaxed the bulls out of the aspens. Amazingly, a
smallish 5x5 ended up 20 yards below A.J., while a much larger 5x6
stopped just 15 paces from Bill. Neither hunter was able to draw on the
elk because of the lack of
covet
  
v. cov·et·ed, cov·et·ing, cov·ets

v.tr.
1. To feel blameworthy desire for (that which is another's). See Synonyms at envy.

2. To wish for longingly. See Synonyms at desire.
 Eventually the bulls got nervous and
vamoosed. We missed a great opportunity to kill those bulls because our
calling location was poorly chosen.

A calling location should force an approaching elk to come in close
before it realizes it has been duped. Despite our dumb luck on the sage
hillside, it is unlikely an elk will come to a call in an open clearing
when it can plainly see no elk are there, and even if it does, it
certainly won't stick around very long. From time to time I will
call out in the open in order to locate a far-away bull, but that is the
exception rather than the rule. Find timber, and then call.

Incidentally, another very common blunder bowhunters make is to
hide behind their cover. Always hide in front of your cover. Use the
background cover to break up your outline, while giving yourself the
necessary space in front to maneuver and shoot your bow. It doesn't
do much good to have an elk come to your call, only to find you are
handcuffed by your hideout and can only stand there and watch. It makes
for a great story back at camp, but for very few dead elk.

Many hunters limit their calling to areas where they run into fresh
elk sign, and these places are most assuredly worthy of a
well-orchestrated calling sequence, but I have had just as much success
"cold calling." Cold calling is bugling or cow-calling into
places likely to hold elk. Locations such as suspected bedding areas,
benches, intersections of well-used trails, saddles: springs, seeps, and
areas where you have seen elk consistently in the past are ripe for this
technique. I also like to cold call every few hundred yards as I walk
the top of thickly timbered ridges, hoping to locate or call elk out of
the adjacent gulches. The biggest bull I have ever arrowed was located
while cold calling from a ridgetop.

How To Call?

When you call to elk, you are literally speaking their language in
an attempt to elicit a desired response from the bull or cow. While you
don't need to be a calling champion, a competent elk caller should
be versatile enough to make the variety of sounds needed for each unique
calling situation. You may need to make the sounds of a bull looking for
cows; an angry, aggressive bull; a lost cow; a cow in
estrus

; or a
combination of these sounds and others, depending on the situation.

Obviously, you must also know what each elk sound means and when to
use them. It doesn't do any good to practice your calls until you
are blue in the face, only to make the wrong call for the given
situation. For instance, 1 consistently witness bowhunters ripping off a
full bugle with grunts in response to every elk sound they hear. These
hunters are unknowingly threatening every bull within
earshot
  
n.
The range within which sound can be heard by the unaided ear; hearing distance:
. If they
would learn what the different elk sounds mean, and make calls
appropriate to the calling situation, elk would undoubtedly be more
responsive to their calling.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Another common calling mistake is trying to call in bulls over long
distances. Rarely will bulls cover a lot of real estate to investigate a
call. Instead, locate the bull from a distance, but move in close before
trying to convince him to come to you. I try to get within 80 yards
before setting up and really working my calls. Also, rake a tree, stomp
the ground, or break twigs to add realism to your calling sequence.
Often, this creativity is the final straw that entices an elk to come
in.

Finally, be ready for action each time you call. I've seen
even veteran elk hunters get tired and lazy, and use their calling
sequence as a rest break. They find a comfortable rock or log to sit on,
don't bother to put an arrow on their string, and grab a snack as
they call because they don't really believe an elk is going to come
in. It's a shame to miss an opportunity to kill an elk because of
laziness, especially after investing the energy required to find one in
the first place.

After this, my thirteenth year bowhunting elk, I'm still
floored by how much smart elk calling has increased my success. If you
are struggling to kill elk regularly, or not killing elk at all, ask
yourself some questions. Do you use elk calls as a regular part of your
bowhunt? If so, do you have a solid understanding of what these calls
mean and how to use them? Are you purposeful and thorough in your
calling setups? What might you need to change in order to avoid the
calling-related pitfalls mentioned above?

Don't expect to be the
Pied Piper

 of the elk woods every time
you call. But if you put into practice the advice in this article,
I'd wager you will become a more successful elk bowhunter. Now go
out and solve the elk-calling
conundrum
 A problem with no satisfactory solution; a dilemma
 for yourself this season!
