An RMEF Elk Network Original
There is no more magical of a dance than that experienced on the mountain in pursuit of rutting bull elk. I was 13 years old the first time that I witnessed the thrill of calling in a bugling bull elk. My dad and I were hunting public land in Idaho when he called in a beautiful rutting bull elk to a mere 30 yards. That moment changed my life. Forever.
Elk calling and hunting is a part of me. Learning their language became an all-out possession for me in my early twenties as I set out to master the cow mew, chirp, estrous mew and bull location calls, challenge and display bugles. Taking second place in the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundations World Elk Calling Championships using Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls, I won a beautiful Traditions muzzle loader.
In the latest RMEF Elk Network original, join me in New Mexico for a public land hunt for elk with this very special rifle hunting under the glory of the Hunters Moon.
