Animal Calls at long range

Do you use animal calls at long range? It may work for coyotes but deer, elk and moose at long range? (They like to stay in the bush and walk torward to your call and appear at close range.) [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] How do you know the animal will walk on this trail at long range unless you have been hunting on this area in the past? If you don't use animal call, do you just sit there and wait for an animal to appear in open areas?

Re: Animal Calls at long range

To answer your question.

We don't use animal calls at all.

With our big eyes and the areas we hunt, we can view a very large area (several mountain sides) and sometimes in a full circle around us.

Somewhere in the vast area we are glassing, we can pick up a feeding or moving deer or elk during the day.

With a good set of bigeyes on a tripod, we can see every part of a wooded mountain area. Depending on how thick the brush is, the animals don't have to be out in the open for us to see them.
Normal and Regular wooded mountains, we can see in.

You have to look into a good set of tripod mounted optics to understand what and how we do it.

Re: Animal Calls at long range

You must realize that the terrain in the western states is uneven and considerably more open than in Ontario. Most of our areas aren't nearly grown up in vegitation. The idea here, is to spot it from a distance and then place the shot. For instance, here in SW New Mexico, there are places where we could see two hundred miles on a clear day. If you have the optics, you can pick out critters a long ways off.

There's something very wrong with your personal website! When I went there just now I got snow all over the carpet on the floor just on front of my computer! Better fix it. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Animal Calls at long range

When you guys shoot an elk a mile away how do you get it out? Seems like it would take a very long time to walk to the other side of a mountain ridge and haul that "Heavy" sucker back before the meat went bad.

Re: Animal Calls at long range

Usually in the winter it's very cold at 7500 feet elevation and above.
We do head to the animal as soon as it goes down. We never let it lay for any length of time.
Never had one go bad yet either.

When we get to the elk or deer we quarter and bag it and either start backpacking or call on the radios to send someone with the horses.

Our work really begins when the animal goes down because we have to go down one mountain and then climb up another one or even two.

Our motto is; "It's not easy being a longrange hunter" especially when your back packing one out.
