EPISODE 27: Elk Hunting-How Corey Jacobsen Does It! Part 1
Elk Hunting Tactics - Strategies
What is the most important think you can’t fake you have to put effort into for Elk Hunting? What’s the one thing you need to be focusing on? "Confidence."
Which you gain from experience. That killer instinct comes from experience.
“It’s all about channeling that adrenaline rush.” “Channel that excitement into the thrill of the hunt.” Corey Jacobsen
Corey’s Typical Setup
“I want a fight! I want him coming in hot.”
Closing the distance- Get as close as you can get. When you hit that point you can’t go any further, stop and set up.
Shooting lanes- We say, “This is where we want the bull to come in.”
Caller moves back 30-40 yards. Just to a point where the bull has to come into the shooters lane before seeing the caller.
The Caller lets out a simple cow call. Once the bull responds- as soon as he responds- no matter what he responds with the caller hits him with a challenge bugle. Be immediate. In fact we usually cut him off. Put that aggression and emotion into it.
