This is my second year bowhunting elk and this past weekend I saw my first elk (obviously we were not in the right place last year). I was cresting a hill in early morning and saw two bulls, one rag horn and one fairly good size. As soon as I saw them I froze and go off the trail so that they couldn't see me. I was about 60 yards away and didn't have a shot so I tried to call them in with a cow call. I was using one of the primos hoochie mama calls, so I doubt that I could screw it up, but after I called the elk waited about 2 seconds and took off down the hill. I was directly downwind, so I doubt they smelled me, but maybe I was doing something wrong. It has been warm in CO so the Rut is not in full force, and I dint hear a single call (bull or cow) all day. Anyone have any suggestions about mistakes, or is this just elk hunting.
