Intro To Making Elk Sounds

In the latest PTW Tips From The Wild, Kristy Titus and Rockie Jacobsen of Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls walk you through making your first sounds with a diaphragm elk call. These elk calling tips will help you to create realistic sounding elk calls in no time.

Wild Frenzy Bugle Tube

The WILD FRENZY was designed by Rockie Jacobsen and Kristy Titus featuring Volume Enhanced Tone Technology (V.E.T.T.) as well as our tried and true Tone Selector. With the V.E.T.T. system the bugle tube creates true, easy to obtain bull elk sounds. The Tone Selector on the end of the bugle tube allows you to change the amount of volume projected and control the back pressure on your diaphragm. These two specialized features help you obtain the most realistic bugles possible.

The V.E.T.T. system contains a spring, tuned to the right dimensions, inside the specially made adapter. The spring creates more volume, stabilizes higher notes, has raspier low growls, easier octave changes and takes less air to operate. The spring allows for the right amount of vibration to enhance the tone quality and volume that is achieved when bugling into it.

The tube comes completely assembled with the spring and adapter inserted into the tube and is ready to use with your favorite mouth call diaphragm. The vibration dampener (Tube Tamer) is on the inside of the tube on the large end. This helps enrich the deep sounds for chucking and eliminates any plastic vibration. No more ‘tuby’ sounds.

The tube is less than 18” in overall length making it easier for packing, while still providing the volume and realistic quality sounds of a larger tube. With its 1” mouth opening and tapered lip adapter there is more comfort and control of all your bull elk sounds.

Hunting Is Healing with USMC Kirstie Ennis

On this episode of Pursue The Wild, Kristy Titus has the honor of taking Sgt. USMC (retired) Kirstie Ennis, on her first elk hunt. Ennis was an aerial gunner that was severely wounded in a helicopter crash while serving her country in June 2012. She suffered severe facial trauma, spinal cord damage, damage to both arms and was in limb salvage for many years. Since this hunt took place, Ennis had her left leg amputated above the knee as a result of injuries sustained during the crash.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without hunting, especially going through what I did,” said Sgt. USMC (retired) Kirstie Ennis in the opening lines of the show. “The outdoors does something to you. Its gets you up and moving.”

Ennis’ hunt is thanks to the work of RMEF and Wounded Warrior Outdoors, who gained special access to private timberland in the Pondosa Tract in California for this hunt. This moving hunt originally aired on the RMEF Team Elk television show.

RMEF Middle Creek Public Access Project

Permanently protecting even the tiniest slivers of elk country pays big dividends. That's exactly the case in south-central Colorado. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation worked with a willing seller also an RMEF member to finalize what's called the Middle Creek Project.

Though a mere 28 acres, the transaction improves access to eighty five hundred acres of public land for hunters, anglers and others to access and enjoy. It connects U.S. Forest Service land to the west with Bureau of Land Management land to the east.

The property sits at eighty six hundred feet elevation at the northern end of the San luis Valley and features what you would expect to find in Colorado's high country, prime wildlife habitat in the form of open grasslands, riparian meadows, aspen groves and mixed conifer stands that lead to peaks higher than 11,000 ft on adjacent public land.

It is here you will find elk, bighorn sheep, black bear, trout and other bird and animal life. Opening and improving public access lies at the heart of RMEF's conservation mission.

Increase Downrange Accuracy with NPA

As marksmen and hunters, we want our bullet or arrow to impact downrange with precision on our intended target. Employing natural point of aim (NPA) will help increase downrange accuracy and eliminate muscular tension and fatigue.

In the latest episode of Pursue The Wild, Tips From The Wild, Kristy Titus explains how to test if your sight picture has NPA on the intended target. Combined with the fundamentals of marksmanship; sight alignment, sight picture, breath control, trigger control & follow through form the foundation of precision marksmanship. With a little practice at the range, employing NPA will become second nature and create more successful first round downrange impacts.
