New or old, replace your batteries. They are cheap, just swap them out. Also, leukotape for blisters and diaper cream for chaffing.  :tup:

Allright guys, every year, in every elk state.... somebody stops on a road, blows their horn and an immature bull runs up out of the timber; they may or may not get a shot.  This is not what you want to hang your hat on during the elk rut (that is not the norm, most bulls are keenly tuned into their environment and knows who's who for the most part and not stupid by a long shot).  I guarantee you that squeaky, social calf sounding hoochie call, turns more bulls off than on.  It's probably a good sound when "mixed in" with other elk sounds.  Want to maximize your opportunities in the September/early October elk rut?  Learn how to make the basic elk sounds using a diaphragm.  Locator bugle, challenge bugle, bull calling cows to him bugle (using chuckles), social cow sounds, excited cow sounds, and yes.... even calf sounds (sure, you can keep the hoochie in your pocket for that if you wish).  I'm not kidding you wild bohemians, learn good elk sounds, learn to apply the sounds as necessitated by the situation, and do your very best to understand the bull's "mood" as it were during a calling situation. Heck, it's oftentimes the best method to not make any sounds at all, again, depending on the situation.  If you live anywhere close to me, swing by one evening or on the weekend and I'll get you making elk sounds, realistic elk sounds.  And yah, some guys say they choke when trying to use a diaphragm, I can recommend one manufacturer that may work for you.  If not, I can recommend some bite and blow cow calls and reed bugles that'll get you well on your way.

I doubt that anybody on this forum doesn't know this already, but WapitiTalk1 is genuine with his offer.  I have done that exact same thing a few years ago (and, he even made me dinner).  He is a stand up guy, and knows how to blow his elk horn.  If any of you need to learn how to use a diaphragm, take him up on this kind offer.

Also, I suggest that you bring your dogs with you.  He really likes it when a guest does that.

Here’s several things I’ve learned over the years:

-Baby wipes>>> toilet paper
-Gold Bond- Like riding on a saddle of citrus clouds while hiking.
- super sharp tipped micro tweezer in your 1st aid. Awesome for devils club and blackberries.
- buy chalk powder or diatamateous earth for cheap wind checker refill. Go through a small bottle each day or two.
- Leukotape = must have
- If bugs are bad, permethrin> than deer.
- Keep a small tool kit with the torx or Allen wrenches for everything on your rifle in your truck. Get it in there now.
- Make mental notes now of how excited you are and what you’re going to tell yourself when you are tired, hot, the action is slow, or you’re feeling defeated.
- Hunt with your dad or grandpa while you still have the chance, even if they are slowing down or can’t get where you want to go.

No better advice than this one.
