Summary

How to Find Your Elk and Get Him in Close, will teach you the tactics of 10 nationally known elk hunters, to help put that giant bull that's been screaming at you from afar, in your lap. You'll learn what some of the best guides, outfitters, and successful elk hunters do to find elk and get them in really close.

Also in this audiobook, you'll notice that the majority of the experts call elk to within bow range. We selected numerous bowhunters and bowhunting guides, since the bowhunter has to get much closer to a bull than the gun hunter does - often less than 20 or 30 yards - practically in your lap. On one elk hunt, I'd heard this bull bugle all morning. My guide had called him within 30 yards, and he was standing just inside black timber. I saw the smoke from his nose wafting out into the icy air less than 30-yards away. All the bull had to do was step out, and I could take the shot with my bow. But then, through no fault of my guide or me, the bull vanished. The only conclusion I could come up with to understand why the bull I wanted to take with my bow hadn't stepped out and given me a shot, was because he got raptured. He evidently had left the earth with no trace of himself.

This hunt was when I started wanting to learn more about hunting elk up close. In this book, I've tried to find some of the most knowledgeable, experienced, and practical elk hunters. I've always found that the best way to learn any outdoor skill, is to either hunt or fish with the best sportsmen in that field. Often, in elk hunting, that means elk guides, who generally hunt every day of the season and receive a salary for every hunter they guide. So, I've put together a group of some of the best elk hunters I know, to help us all learn how to find bull elk and get them in close.

stories and ads

Decent book, not much on information on hunting elk except for at the beginning. Mostly just stories and ads throughout.

Don’t waste a credit

This wasn’t a book about how to elk hunt it was a collection of stories about great hunter getting big animals but the amount of tip, and tricks were minimal.

The reading performance was absolutely horrible. This guy should be allowed to do audiobooks.

.......ZZZZZZZ.......

Very tough to listen, seems like the author was getting royalties for referencing PSE bows, save the time and money on this one, I am sure there are other references that are better suited.

GARBAGE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Whoever is reading this sucks, and I got tired of the advertising for PSE bows and products. when writing a book don't be so monotone. Sounds like a shitty computer generated voice reading this. I will never purchase another book written by this person.
