Time to knock the dust off the calls (or get your orders in for new ones) and start getting your sound clip ready for the 2nd annual Elknut Elk Calling Contest. The rules in the flyer are pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Send your sound clip to the email listed in the flyer "only", please do not post them in the contest announcement thread. Looking forward to lots of participants this year! RJ

I've had a few inquiries over the past week on who may enter the calling contest. The 2nd Annual Elknut Elk Calling Contest is for amateur/novice callers only. Those who have competed on higher levels such as the Mens or Pro Divisions are not allowed to enter. Basically it boils down to this. Once you have stood on a stage and competed at a high level, you're beyond the amateur level. Hope this clarifies who may enter.

Also the goal of this contest is for everyone to have fun and contribute any way they can. Everyone will gain in the end and your calling while hunting will definitely improve.

Guys do not be afraid to enter as we are here to help and we do not expect perfect sounds. Simply try your hardest and have a good time.

Well put Wapiti (Trav).

I've had a couple of inquiries about the best way to record a sound and which sound file format will work. You can use your cell phone recorder or plug a microphone into your computer and use your PC's sound recorder. Either one should produce a file I can use. If anybody wishes to, you're welcome to record a test sound prior to the entry window opening (howdy RJ, how's the weather in the Evergreen State?).. and send it to the email listed in the flyer to make sure you've got a file format that works.

Received a handfull of entries over the weekend. I'll wait until I get a few more to pull the first raffle prize contestant number, maybe tomorrow (Wednesday, 27 May). Let's go with a free one year membership in the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation for the first raffle draw. Not only is the RMEF a great organization but the bugle magazine that you receive with your membership is an exceptional publication. 8-)

Allrighty then, I just had my lovely assistant pull a contestant number out of a hat and the lucky winner of a Wapiti River Outdoors "Easy Girl" bite and blow cow call is RooseveltObsession. I'll contact Trav from WRO and ask him to send one of these very good cow calls to the lucky winner. Congrats!

Let the judging begin! The contest window closed yesterday and all of the audio clips have been provided to the judges for their review, scoring, and comment. We have a total of 11 entries this year and I've gotta say, there are some pretty darn good submissions. Best of luck to all who entered and thank you for participating in the second annual Elknut Elk Calling Contest :D

Ahh, heck... maybe we should wait till early next week to announce the top six finishers. What's the hurry :D Give me a minute to finish wolfing my pizza down and I'll post em up. Some really good clips/programs entered this year folks and if you didn't make the top six, in several cases, it was only by a few points.

Let's see if I can do this right. Here are the top six finishers (note that there was a tie for 7th place and they were only two points below the six place finisher). Who were the judges? GSElkhunter (former top level calling competitor and elk slayer), Wapiti (current top level elk noise maker, elk slayer, and owner of Wapiti River Outdoors), Elkmtngear (elk hunter/slayer/caller and owner of Elk Mountain Gear), and yours truly, Phantom16, just a grizzled old elk hunter/caller since oh, let's be kind and say the early 80s ;) .

For everyone involved and all the sponsors I just wanted to say thanks so much. What a cool thing to participate in and a great way to learn.

BTW, I got drawn for one of the raffles last week and received my package yesterday. One of the things in there was a Wapiti River Outdoors Black Widow diaphragm which I'd never heard of before, but I've been playing with it for the last 20 minutes or so and this thing is stinking awesome! I'm gonna have to pick up a few of these.

Anyway, thanks again all. There was some great calling to learn from and a great way to pass the time until September!

Thanks to all involved!!! What a great and fun learning experience! I've already got some ideas for next year and will have my eye on the top spot.

Until then, I'll practice for another 77 days, then unleash my sounds on the ghosts of the rainforest.

Thanks again to the sponsors and judges and a BIG thank you to Travis, over at WRO, for the Reaper...just an awesome call!

Just got back from a little trip out to western Montana. Felt good to get back out there....and really hard to leave.
RJ, thanks for all the work you put into making this happen. Awesome stuff. Thanks to all of the other judges and sponsors for donating time and some goodies. This is good practice for the real thing coming soon.
