    I have found that knowing what call to make and when is way more important than the call it self. I use a bugle and cow call that I'm certain no one else on here uses, it is not a user friendly bugle but the cow call is. The calls I use are "Deep Timber Sounds" calls, the owner and builder of the calls has videos to show you how to and when to use the calls.

    I think one technique that is often left out is ground noise. Break branches, snap twigs, move grass. Elk are generally noisy so making a little noise while imitating one will help you sound more real. Good luck!

    Thanks so much hilltop. I like the advice about making some noise. I bought several calls this weekend and I'm looking to trying them in the coming weeks

    Thanks TS. I just checked those out. They look really intriguing. I'll watch some of the videos an May try something less familiar like those calls. I'm going to be archery in GMU 14 in colorado this year. Which means lots an lots of jacks. It'd be good to sound different.
