Lost cow is very effective on spikes and cows all year long. Its one of those sounds that demands attention from other elk
It is foolish and wrong to mourn these men.  Rather, we should thank god that such men lived.  -General George S. Patton

Also fawn in distress. I've called in far more deer and elk while using it predator hunting than any other sound.
Don't even respond to the little provocateurs. Just smack them when they go to far.
