Walking and calling are fun hunting, and as you say they combat boredom. But for killing elk you can’t beat sitting in silence, long boring hours and days, in a place with plenty of recent sign, or several such places. Thomas “T” Downing is the most successful cow-calling elk hunter I’ve known–he called in a bull for me two years ago and had several others going crazy in a place where I hadn’t heard a bugle or seen a bull in nearly a week. But T has the vocal magic and most of us don’t. IMHO
Congratulations again! I am real glad the TuffHead worked out for you .Including yours this is the third reported elk killed with the TuffHead in the past week .It was a good week for the TuffHead and a bad week for elk. I am looking forward to the details of the hunt.
