I need to sign up.  I shot with Corey Saturday at the northwest mountain challenge in idaho.

I've been listening to him on a bunch of podcasts and of course thru his University of Elk course videos. He seems like a really cool guy that enjoys sharing what he's learned so people can be better elk hunters.
What was he like in person?
super nice guy in person we had a fun time joking and talking hunting during the shoot.

D-Rock, it was great shooting with you on Saturday! I hope your trip home was quick and uneventful.

Thanks for the support with the online course guys...quite a few people have mentioned that the Scouting with Google Earth chapter was their favorite, and quite a few more have asked if they could get a sneak peek inside the course before they decide to buy...so, I have opened the chapter on Scouting with Google Earth for free viewing through tomorrow (Wednesday) at noon (MST). Also, the discount codes mentioned above are still active for $40 off the price of the course. Here is the link to view the content in Module 2/Chapter 2:

Many thanks,
Corey

The Google earth section alone is worth the money!

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.

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:
Survey40 this gets you $40 off.

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.
