    Buy a couple different brands of diaphragm calls figure out which one you like best. There are a ton of videos on YouTube that help. I have heard great things about Elknuts stuff. Last year I switched to bugling bulls calls and I love them. I learned all on my own from buying calls and watching YouTube videos

    IMO first hand experience is the only teacher. I would watch all the videos you can and find some calls that are comfortable for you. Practice a bunch and then go hunt with an open mind. I feel like I learn something new every time I go. I have taken and guided a gob of successful hunts and no two were alike. To me that is what makes elk so fun and challenging. You can do all the home work you want and it is still going to be a challenge.... and super rewarding. Good luck and have fun!

    Definitely check out elk nuts web site.
    I bought some CDs from him and they are a great way to learn. The products he sells are first rate from what I have seen. Learn from the products, practice a lot, and then go out and see how you do.

    See, that's the problem I have. When I call elk, they don't answer. It goes straight to voice mail. I'm beginning to think that it has everything to do with their carriers. They oughta go with Verizon. ;-)

    What good would hunting do us were we to forget to laugh?

    Bugling Bulls sells calls and does some demonstrations with each of the calls. Check out his web site.

    I am by no means an expert, but don't forget your cow calls. You can push a herd out with bugeling, where cow calls seem to offer you some stealth. It is a craft that not everyone can become good at. Use your stealth and cow calls while you learn the big bugle.

    I believe in "Deep Timber Sounds" calls and video's. The calls and techniques are focused on public land elk. I have had many more encounters after using their products.

    I'm a beginner to elk calls and bugles, I have seen the bugling bulls and they seen easy to use, any thoughts. I'm thinking of getting the bugle that expands and the cow call?
