The language of the Roosevelt. Mike Jenkins of Up Front Outfitters told me that Washington State's Roosevelt Elk are bigger bodied than Rocky Mountain Elk, but have smaller axe mikes, a game calling expert and listen to what he has to say about how these elk communicate. Roosevelt Elk. Do they have the same sound? Do you call them the same way or do they have different vocal? Speaker2: You know, vocally, they're a little quieter and I believe it's because they've been hunted. You know, it's over the counter tags for the most part. They're a lazier animal. They don't have to travel near as far. The cow elk are very vocal. Very, very vocal. More so than Rocky Mountain elk ever have been. And I think because they're in the thick, thick cover all the time in the rainforest, they have to be vocal to keep contact. So they're very vocal, but the bulls seem to be a little less vocal. Speaker1: So that's like a typical domestic household. She does all the yakking. Speaker2: And he's. Speaker1: And he sits quietly and. Yes, dear. Speaker2: That's exactly what it's like. So, you know. So methods are methods are a little bit different. I love hunting the Roosevelt because it's so thick. Everything's close range. But I hunt the deep, dark timber and I cut a lot of trails into the rainforest to get back deep where these bulls live. And then then I kind of let the let the herds do the work for me if I can.
