    Elk calls

    I want to pick up some calls, being a newbie to elk hunting I wanted to get some seasoned advice on calls. I am looking at something other than wallie world carries. I want quality and sound obviously. Wutcha guys think? Also advice on an instructional DVD? How did you guys learn?

    For a bugle I just use primos mouth calls like the sonic dome, I have a few others but cant think of there names. For cow calls I use the hyper lip single and imakadabullcrazy both by primos. The later is my favorite Ive called in alot of bulls with that single cow call and I dont see many people using them, really easy to use as well.

    I use the widowmaker for a cow call and da wild thang for a bugle. Both by Mossback Game Calls.. I love them both very much. They sound great and are incredibly easy to use.

    Bugling Bull game calls have all kinds of different calls, mouth diaphram calls that you can make any sound an elk makes with. They have instructional DVD/CD. Also check out elknut.com he has a few different instructional DVD's. I own all different kinds/brands of elk calls some work better than others I feel sometimes but I always pack a couple different ones for calling.

    another 1+ for elknut Paul is a great guy and knows his elk and bugling bull game calls are great as well. The temptress from elk101.com is another good call

    I got the 4 DVD set from elknut and have been able to keep up with them using my Carlton's mouth reeds and the two cow calls I already had. Turns out the two main calls he uses in the dvd's are the two calls I have always used. Now I just have a better idea of when and how to use them.
