Jason,
When should your new site be up and running?
Looking to pick up a few calls to learn with.  What would be some good beginner/all around diaphragm calls to start with?
Thanks

I picked up a few of Jason's new AMP diaphragm and I'm able to use them fairly easily.  I'd recommend getting some of those to start.

Was very fortunate to draw a Sled Springs Eastern Oregon Archery Bull tag this year.  Had a few questions.  We elected to choose the later part of the season from the 14th of September to the 24th for the sole reason of the moon phase ( I hate hunting when there is a full moon).  The unit is littered with many miles of closed private timber land that is only accessible via bike, walking or horseback.  With the season opening on August 26th the unit will see approximately 3 weeks of limited hunting pressure before we even step foot in the woods, and it is possible that most of the elk will be herded up at this point.
1. Do you change your calling techniques for bulls that have been called to already during that season?
2. If you locate bulls in the wee hours of the night have you noticed them to be in those locations in the morning and receptive to calling.
Any other advice would be appreciated if there are other hunters on here that have hunted the unit.

Hello Jason. I have a question. So I was hunting yale unit opening day for elk. Lots of guys around me doing bull all kinds of bull calls around me on the ridges. No elk responding. I kept walking down low in the draws. I herd a bull bark at me and I called back at it w a lost calf. He came to me to 20 yards quartering to front leg was back a bit covering vitals and a bush as well didn't take the shot. Guy up on the ridge came to my calls as well and started to cow call. Bull spooked into the timber but hung up and kept barking at us now. I let off so to not spook it anymore. The guy went after it a bit. My question is do you think he will hang out in the general area or is he long gone. He was a 6x6 looked older to me cz his antlers where small. Seemed like he was regressing. I feel he is a smart old bull. I can send you more info if you need
