Comments

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.

Oops! Going through everything and getting it ready for elk camp. Looks like some repairs are needed on the camp shower. Good thing there’s time to get this repair done. Everything else is ready to go and the time to head to camp will be here soon!

Testing day! Just got some of the new RipIt narrow frames and a few of the ECA regular framed RipIt from @nativebycarlton
The narrow frame line up includes The Constitution, the SS-Black and the Brawler. Fit is amazing and they all sound great! The Brawler is quickly becoming my favorite with amazing cow sounds and so easy to hit the high, ear ringing note that bulls respond to. Cant wait to put these to the test this fall!
