Regardless of what you may think, you can kill a nice elk without going on a guided elk hunt. As long as you understand elk and know how to call, your odds of success on a DIY public land elk hunt are pretty good.
Corey Jacobsen and Dirk Durham are both experts at calling elk and really put their skills to use in this video. Look at the size of some of those bulls they call in!
Watch how close that elk got before he took his shot!
That looked like a fun hunt! I can't wait for elk season next year!
