Davk, I think that the course would be very beneficial to all elk hunting. Especially the sections on how to setup on elk and calling, or locating elk when its thick and deep. There is a lot of information in this course that I took for granted and a few things that I realized were cardinal mistakes that I was making over and over again. I think for the price of the course and the information that it has in it that it is worth every elk hunter regardless of their experience to use it.

Last weekend I was hanging out with a friend who works for Trophy Taker and we briefly talked about this. He mentioned to me even with his experiences guiding and working in the industry involved in elk 365 that the course was worth it for him to read.

Additionally, here is a new discount code:

I'm not sure how well it correlates to the west side being that its such a different set of dynamics involved compared to basically 95% western elk hunting. I've scanned over areas where we've hunted for years and I dunno. Some of the very high elevation areas its adaptive for sure, but lower where your in industrial timberland is kind of a toss up. It would be awesome if he did a coastal specific addition to that module.

How beneficial is the course for west side elk hunting?  Moved out here a few years ago and this year will be the second year Im purchasing an elk tag.  Did very little scouting last year and turned my elk hunt primarily into a bear hunt with a ... if I see an elk great, if I dont o well.

It would be extremely helpful to the westside hunter. I cut my teeth on industrial timberland elk, and love it still. I had alot of my preconceived ideas in my head that were shattered when I actually spent some time WATCHING elk behavior. Something I think is very difficult in the coastal jungles. IMO there is little difference in behavior from coastal elk to "western" elk. Only perceived differences due to a variety of factors.

The course has a lot of information for all hunting situations. There are modules as an archery hunter you don't want to skip that you may never want to read as a rifle hunter But those parts are small. I see a huge benifit if you hunt elk period, from getting tags to processing your game every detail is covered.

Plus Corey's live Q&A tonight was awesome.

How beneficial is the course for west side elk hunting?
Some of the modules have a linear value regardless of where, when, and how you hunt. While some of them have a varying value based on the same factors. So to answer your question  :dunno: all depends on you. I think its worth it though in general the overall value is there, especially considering the discounted costs posted.

That being said, like 95% of the literature and video's on elk hunting, if your a westside roosevelt elk hunter your always looking for that 5% that's actually geared specifically to the elk you hunt.

It's the same in concept, elk is an elk sure, but there are differences that to me would warrant adding a roosevelt specific subsection to some of the modules. I'd think the profitability is there for the time needed to create it considering the number hunters on the coast.

Hey guys!

For those of you on the fence wondering if the info applies to westside hunting, I would say yes. About 75% of the course covers general elk hunting topics that aren’t weapon/season/area specific (planning, scouting, fitness, gear, general elk knowledge, common challenges, tracking, field dressing, packing, etc.). The remaining 25% probably leans more to “rut” hunting (more archery) with topics like setting up, calling, etc., and most of those topics apply regardless of area. And within those categories, there are also multiple late-season topics as well (non-calling tactics, locating elk, glassing, etc.).

The course certainly isn't tailored to hunting the thicker westside elk, but most of the information will definitely apply and be valuable.

Having gone through about 75% of the course so far, I agree! Well worth the money. Think about it,  if one were to kill an elk because of something they learned in the course, worth it in my book. Besides, it's equivalent to a tank of gas and I've learned far more already than I would with several scouting trips that would take at least a tank per trip.

Once again, thank everyone so far that used me as a reference signing up for the course. Hope that this gives you that edge to get a few more opportunities this season or get you in and out of the woods safer.

New code today:
GEAR40 gets you $40 off the course fee.
Plus there is a drawing every day for a week for people that sign up this week. Just a bonus on top of a great course.

Also today if your signed up or previously signed up there is a live Q&A with Corey Jacobsen via Facebook. I listened to the last one and it was pretty informative.

How much of the course is written text versus video? I learn much better watching video and seeing pictures over just reading.

Interested in signing up for this course.  Can you print sections out to refer back to later?  I don't want to be a jerk and not let those folks make their money but I'm kind of a paper reading type of person.

Thanks

You could probably copy and paste into a word doc and then print. Of course, the videos are very good
