« on: March 23, 2017, 09:13:22 PM »
After talking it over with bearpaw (Dale; Bear Paw Outfitters big dog and the head cook and bottle washer at Hunting-Washington.com) its been decided that we'll do the 2017 Elk Calling Contest as a collaborative effort between WapitiTalk.com and Hunting-Washington.com. Should be a blast! We've already got a good handful of great sponsor prizes lined up with many more to follow I'm sure. Sooo, here it is folks... the official announcement. Dust those calls off and start practicing your sound clip for the first annual WapitiTalk.com and Hunting-Washington.com Elk Calling Contest!

Only final score tallies/rankings will be posted on the forum(s) but yes........ in past contests, I've captured and provided some of the judges comments to the contestants if they wish to receive them.

Yes sir, any human operated calls are acceptable for submission.  I say that because I remember receiving a PM during one contest asking if they could use an electronic elk call for their submission, I kid you not  :rolleyes:

Magnum-

I've used the iPhone app titled "Voice Memos" with some good success.

WapitiTalk1-

Just for clarification, the three 20 second intervals have to be recorded in one shot? ex: hit record, perform all three calling topics then stop recording?  Trimming only allowed to cut dead "audio space" at beginning and end of recording?

Yes, that is correct; one continuous recording from start to finish (total length not to exceed 1 minute +/- 5 seconds).
