While you can find yourself in literally HUNDREDS of different situations out in the field, elk have a set of predictable core behaviors and vocalizations that they use in a variety of different scenarios. The trick is knowing which vocalization (or combination of vocalizations) to use when, and more importantly, WHY! The Elk Hunter’s Strategy App helps you identify those behaviors, understand them, and determine which vocalization(s) to use in which situation to maximize your success. At times, the same set-ups, vocalizations, and calling strategies may be the same across a variety of scenarios. The beauty of the App, however, is that it goes beyond just telling you WHAT to do, it helps you understand WHY. The Elk Hunter’s Strategy App is as much about your long-term education in elk hunting and elk calling as it is a short-term reference to help you decide what to do in the moment.
If you’ve spent a small fortune on elk hunting books and all the latest gear and gadgets, and have read up on the various tips, tricks, and tactics in the magazines, chat forums, and other places, but never seem to have the same success or experiences that other hunters do, then you need a new strategy …or DOZENS! Whether you’re a beginning elk hunter, or a seasoned veteran with a lifetime of elk hunting success to your credit, the Elk Hunter’s Strategy App is the perfect addition to your bowhunting arsenal.
Once the Elk Hunter's Strategy App launches, you will see the Home Screen.
After you enter the app, you will be given a series of choices. Click the button that corresponds to the choice that most closely matches your current situation.
For most situations, you will be able to choose between Cow Vocalization Strategies and Bull Vocalization Strategies. Then, from within those strategy choices, you will be able to choose from a series of tactics which range from passive to more aggressive strategies. You will also be given suggestions for the best set-up you should use in a given situation. If a given strategy/tactic doesn't work for you/your situation, or the situation changes, simply hit the Back button to select a different strategy.
Throughout the app, we also provide commentary on behavioral and seasonal considerations: why the bulls and/or cows are acting that way in that particular situation to help you better understand what is going on with the elk at that time.
