Who’s ready to talk elk?!? Michael Batease with The Elk Calling Academy asked me to join him tomorrow night for Wapiti Live Q&A on YouTube, we’re going to be talking about the journey to elk hunting success and much more 💥💥 Here’s the link, join us at 6pm Pacific! 👇🏼👇🏼

ECA helped out in a big way Michael Batease!! Set up calling and all! After not being out in a few years I wanted a refresher and someone else's insight prior to this years hunt!! Couldn't have asked for a better way to gain some more insight! Thank you!! 2 for 2!
Merry Christmas to you all and your family
I guess we have admiring the elk for a very long time.
Can't thank you enough for all the knowledge you have bestowed upon us! The Boyd brothers.
Tonight Michigan 😊🏹
Got an elk two days ago. Thank you Elk Calling Academy for teaching me what I needed to know to get things done in the elk woods.I was hunting in an area with no fresh sign, no activity other than a bunch of people, and no talking elk. I thought I would practice some elk calls just to see what would happen. I did a breading sequence with no response. walked a little further down the ridge and heard something spook that was large. I looked for tracks of what it was and found the tracks from what I thought was a bull and a cow elk. I followed them for a little ways then thought I would try calling again. To my surprise he answered! I did the breeding sequence again and he came in. I shot him at 55 yards. The pack out the next day was tough. I had to pack him a mile back to my mules and donkey, took me all day but I got it done and will have meat for a long time.
Tagged out in New Mexico. 1st archery hunt. Thanks for all the help and guidance you have helped me with.
Finally got it done today on a solo hunt!!
Michael - any personal experience or any of your followers who may be able to help?

Anyone have any sure fire ways to help keep the No-see-ums at bay? I have about 30 more bites and my skin CRAWLS!!! I typically wear gloves but for the 2nd time did not have them on when we got into a "scenario" no time to put them on. I also wear a face mask but they get underneath it. I have bites on my neck and ears, all over my hands. They've gotten in my eyes. Argh! Off with deet doesn't seem to help.

Thank you in advance!

Amy
Even know it's a animal park, it works for me. Little practice before the 15th
Out practising some vocals tonight, it a animal park, but it works for me.

I never knew what I missing until I finally broke down and tried trekking poles. Wow! Talk about something simple making such a HUGE impact. I prefer a breakdown style like these DISTANCE Z TREKKING/RUNNING POLES. They break down and take up a smaller space in your pack and allow you to deploy them quickly and easily. The important is to get the right size for your height so be sure and check out the sizing guide. It will make a difference when you're using your poles. Who else loves using trekking poles?

I did a video a few years ago about shooting my bow without a peep sight and to answer the question I get asked quite often, yes, I'm still shooting without a peep. The follow-up question I get is about torquing the bow. I've been shooting long enough that it isn't a problem for me but what about someone that is starting out and wants that instant feedback when they are shooting and what I recommend for them. My response has been the IQ Bowsight which shows you right away if you are torquing the bow at all as you can see in the image. There is a torque indicator at the top of the sight housing that gives you feedback right away. You can find out more information about it, and pick up yours here: https://bit.ly/3zcHSJA

Wapiti Live Q&A Tonight!
I’ve been watching some elk hunting videos lately and seeing where it’s misunderstood what the bull is asking for and the group ends up spending a ton of time only to not get an opportunity so tonight that’s what we’ll be talking about. Understanding and recognizing what that bull is asking for so that you can plan the right strategy to increase the chance of an opportunity. Tune in to the private group at 7:30 PM and don’t miss out on this power packed info.

These guys pose and posture with attitude and confidence! How about you? Do you hit the elk woods with confidence in your elk calling and hunting skills? You invest lots of time in conditioning and shooting. Why not invest time in calling and hunting knowledge? We can help with both of those.

Heading out this afternoon for a late season bull hunt. Been a very long time since I’ve hunted elk this late in the year. Weather is breaking so we should see some good animal movement and will be doing some late season calling routines.
