Brian Huskey shares his technique Hunting for elk. I just like to roam and explore. And so that makes it kind of hard on myself in terms of returning to places where I know they're elk, when I'm constantly going to new places where I don't know if there are any elk. There are a lot of places around here that you look at on the map or on Google Earth that look like they should be just full of elk. And you don't know until you get your boots on the ground whether they are actually any there or not. Wasn't archery hunt that I'd been to a total of a combined I think I'd had about 12 days in the field with very few elk encounters. But I did finally find after, I believe, six or seven days without even hearing a bugle, I finally did hear a bugle. Deep in a canyon that was a roadless canyon several thousand feet deep. And the bugle sounded like it was in the bottom of it. I figured I could make my best offer and go halfway down the canyon and see if I could convince the bull to come the other half and I would call into the elk back and forth. And he eventually sounded like he was coming closer. And so I got my act together and got situated and got ready and ended up calling him in to 21 yards. It was a very intense calling experience with the screaming and the trading of insults back and forth in the elk language, through the grunt tube and the bugle. Speaker1: I don't know if that was hunting or negotiating, but Brian did end up with a success.
