    Thank you for all he responses....the fawn bleat call was a thought...but I don't think I will use it. My thought was to have an option that might bring the elk in closer if by chance I saw them and wanted to bring them in a little closer in the event they were too far away. I know from turkey hunting and calling that if the birds have been hunted hard in later season the calling could actually push them further away. The elk in this area have been hunted several times already this year, and the rut is over. The elk should be herded back up and if I see one I may very well others. Thank you again for the information, I really appreciate it and if I get lucky enough to shoot one I will post a picture. This is my first time elk hunting, and it took me 29 years to finally draw a tag so I am really looking forward to the hunt.
    Thank you again!

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    I just shot 2 cows a week ago, from what I saw here in Wyoming...they are bunched-up and plenty spooky. I wouldn't try calling.
    Things may be different in Michigan, I'd go with the advise you got earlier, try to contact a local and find out where the elk are. Sounds like it will be a fun hunt! Enjoy yourself, and good luck!

    I filled my cow tag! Thanks for all the help guys. I sound up getting a hoocha baby diaphragm call, and my granddaughter got me a hootcha baby squeeze call! We didn't use either call though...we sat the first day without seeing anything except snow, it was cold. The second day in the morning in another area we spotted a cow with two calves on private land which we couldn't hunt. They were 30 yards off road. A few hours later in another area my son," eagle eye" spotted a cow on state land up on a ridge in a cutover on state land. I shot her with my .300 RUM,after talking a couple steps she fell over sideways...after getting help from friends we got her to the check station where she was weighed and checked by biologists. Weight was 285 and age estimated at 2.5 years. This was my first elk and probably last ....in michigan anyway? Thanks again for all the help!

    How about a picture. Some of us need to see if what you shot is really a cow elk. LOL

    Congrats on your elk.

    I find posting a picture from an Ipad to be difficult. For some reason when you select the picture on an Ipad you do not get the 'ok"button to complete the uploading. At least when I do it that is what happens. I usually go to my regular computer to upload pictures.
