Flyer has been updated showing all the great sponsors for this year's calling contest.  Contest window opens in a bit over four weeks from today; hope everybody is dusting their calls off and starting to work on their sound clip!  This year's calling contest should be a blast!

I'm not the smartest cat in the woods but my fuzzy math computes that this event is starting in what, less than two weeks?  Holy heck, that's right around the corner!  I hope all the contestants have been working on their clip and are ready to get this thing rolling with a bang (I mean with elk sounds).  RJ

The contest submission window opened today and runs through midnight 14 May (Pacific Standard Time).  Those who submit their contest clips earlier, rather than waiting until the end of the week, will have an opportunity to win an elk call or two (raffle prizes) from none other than Phelps Game Calls.  Good luck to everyone who is participating in the calling contest this year!

Send em in folks; the judges need some clips to listen to.  As mentioned, those who submit their clips sooner than later during the submission week (8-14 May) will have a chance at some Phelps calls (raffles).

All right you buzzards, get your clips sent in.  I don't want to flood the judges with all of them at the last minute.

Happy Friday to all!  Tic tock, tic tock... only a few more days to get your clips in for the calling contest.  As of today, I've received a handful of clips but definitely have room for more contestants!  Some very, very nice prizes await those who participate and place in the top 6 finishers.

Any last day entries (contest window closes today at midnight, PST)?  Send a clip in if you'd like.

All the clips are in and with the judges.  We received a total of 14 entries for this year's contest.  I'll try to have the results out by the middle of the week?  Thanks to all who entered.

So how do you stop people from just sending a recording of some elk sounds?just thought I might ask.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I suppose if you had any doubt, you could just ask to see the video they took that they pulled the sound off of of them making the calls.

 That and it is really hard to get elk to hold still and make a whole bunch of different calls rapid fire inside of a minute (cows first please, just cows...alright, now bulls... ok, all together now)  :chuckle:
