First of all, let me say that I am NOT a fan of hunting shows.
For the most part, I think they are all BS.
I did watch one last night - it was about September elk bow hunting and the main thrust of the show was listening for bulls calling, then setting up downwind of them and calling them into range... with a heavy emphasis on actually using a bugle call to lure the elk to you.
Is this the case in reality?
Are they THAT susceptible to calls?
I thought a large part of elk in September was finding a bull at longer ranges and then tring to stalk in for a shot - by attempting to predict which way he is going to travel as you are setting up.
Did I watch another BS show or is that accurate???
