Coastal Roosevelt elk calling
« on: June 18, 2021, 01:35:57 PM »
Looking for some insight from people who have had success calling coastal Rooseveltís. I am not new to elk hunting but Iíve mostly hunted rifle season. Recently Iíve hunted archery with some buddies and tried to help call, with no success😂 any tips would be helpful.

Drew a quality tag on the coast during September, so hopefully I can learn a little before then.

I think that time of the season is a little late for a lot of the calling.  It's after bow season and after most of the bulls are already with cows.  Seems like the week before archery is when they are screaming and running around the most, then getting chased and quiet down some while the bow hunters are out there.
Seems to be weather/moon dependent.  If it's hot and clear out seems like little activity during the day.  They would probably give a few calls during the night, mostly from the ridgetops.  If it is cool/cloudy/rainy they seem to like to talk more during the day.

You will need to cover ground and call. Most of the responses I get are within a couple hundred yds of the herd well off the road. Alot of guys will call from the road driving around bugling and hitting the hoochie mamma and it can work every once in a while if you find a fired up bull. Jimmy is spot on, if it's hot you will have to get pretty close to get that herd bull to challenge. They won't move much if at all from the timber/reprod during the day unless they are pushed by hunters or pestered to much from satalites

Thanks jimmy! Just trying to gather information. I am just hoping I can hit the weather right to help me out

Weather helps, but rain will also shut things down unless its been raining for awhile  and they have had some time to adjust. If your familiar with the areas that hold elk, try to get within a couple hundred yards undetected  and then start calling. That has worked best for me on rosie bulls on the coast. Like any elk calling the setup is 90 percent of the success equation and the actual calls are 10. Use lots of breaking, and raking, combined with your calls once in that setup and stop often to listen.
