Elk Calling With the Experts
Getting within bow range of a bull elk is no easy task. Old bulls in particular can be call shy; they often hang up just out of range, and their cows come in first and bust the bowhunter long before the bull arrives.
When you add all of this together, putting an arrow in the side of a bull can be a tall task.
However, each year bowhunters from across the country harvest bulls with stick and string. Many bowhunters are successful because they know when to say what to a bull. They know when to chirp like a cow, bugle like a young bull and growl like an old bull.
