All right, the top six finishers for the 2017 Wapiti Talk and Hunting Washington elk calling contest have been determined.  Some really good callers entered this year and scoring was very tight; in some cases, only a single point separated final standings.  OK, thanks to both Hunting Washington and Wapiti Talk for staging this first ever joint operation calling contest (two of the damn finest hunting forums out there if I do say so myself).  Thanks to the judges for taking the time to listen to, evaluate, and score the submissions (Elknut, Jason Phelps, Shane Donner, and Mike Ashmon); I shared in the judging duties also.  Certainly thanks to all those who took the time to record and submit their entry sound clip for this year’s contest!  Lastly, thanks to all the sponsor who donated such awesome prizes for this year’s contest!  What do the top six finishers win?  By final placement, here are the prizes for the top six finishers:
 
1st Place.  Vortex Optics 10X42 Binos; Game Planner Maps (21” Custom Map and one year All Access Membership to the GPM Viewer). 
2nd Place.  Elknut Outdoors Package; Tree Stand Hunting Rocky Mountain Elk Book (John Erickson); $50 Camofire gift certificate.     
3rd Place.  Wapiti River Outdoors Package; Clip-Shot with smart phone adaptor; $50 BlackOvis gift certificate.
4th Place.  Pnuma Outdoors IconX Base Layer top; Alpine Touch Seasoning. 
5th Place.  VIAM Outdoors Game Bag set; Alpine Touch Seasoning.
6th Place.  Alpine Touch Seasoning.

Oh yeah, who were the top six finishers?  Please join me in congratulating the following elk callers.  Nicely done guys; I’ll be getting your prize packages on the way as soon as I can (some will come from me and some will come directly from the sponsor). 

1st Place – Silverslinger/Wapiti Talk and Hunt WA forum; Entry #2
2nd Place – Reidus/Hunting WA forum; Entry #3
3rd Place – Nv02Cummins/Hunting WA forum; Entry #11
4th Place – Standingbird/Hunting WA forum; Entry #12
5th Place – Wapitibowman/Wapiti Talk forum; Entry #10
6th Place – NoLimitations/Hunting WA forum; Entry #13

I’ll get these top six entry clips posted up soon so folks can hear them.  If any contestant wishes to receive some of the comments the judges provided on their scoresheet, let me know and I’ll send them to you.  Again, thanks to all involved in our contest this year and if the interest is there, we’ll run another one next year!  RJ

I was surprised as well. I was trying to talk several different buddies into doing it and they didn't think they'd win so didn't do it. Shoot- i throw my name in every hat I can when the prizes are good.
