Hunting elks is considered to be a special activity, mainly because hunters consider elks as a
very good prey. Also, elks are huge animals and have big rituals of mating and calls.

Depending on the season, they may be extremely short tempered or even timid. All those
people who are experienced in hunting elks or have heard about them from anyone must be
aware of the strange behavior of elks at times.

A bull (basically a male elk) can weigh around 700-800 pounds. But still, elks are the seasoned
hunters’ favorite because it requires a lot of patience and perseverance to get near those
unpredictable animals, and one needs a lot of skill to hunt them down.

There are many aspects regarding great hunting of elks.

Timing is one essential element. The mating season, which is the fall, is the best for elk-hunting.
An experienced hunter is also aware of the time when there is a lot of activity of elks and also
the time when they are static.

They are also aware of the effect the temperature can have on elks. For beginners, it is
necessary that you have a learned guide who will help you out in various aspects. As the elks
can be traced in wide areas, the guide can assure you of where the animal will be found,
besides giving you valuable suggestions for hunting those elks.

Bugling is a wonderful element of hunting the elks. A male elk or a bull uses the bugling to meet
females during the season meant for mating, and by this, he also imposes a challenge on other
fellow bulls.

Using bugling sounds can be a great tip, but using it excessively or in a subdued manner can
alert the elks. The hunter therefore must posses enough experience so as to realize as to where
to draw the line. Generally, almost all the markets come with a distinctive feature about how to
use the bugling sounds accurately and to perfection.

Apart from bugling, there are instruments that mimic the tunes of the cows (the female elks) as
well. To attract a bull, this is used by many hunters. When the hunters find that the bull has
come within a close proximity of him, he can prepare a good shot and hunt the bull down.

Even in this case, proper use is the key. Using excessive or very little of the sound can make
the elk cautious, and you may not get your hunt.

Also, make sure that you are using the mimic instrument of a good quality, else it will fail for
sure.

Elks are very famous for being cautious about impending danger and being on their guard, so it
is recommended that the sound must be very realistic so as to misguide the elk.
