Elk Calling Strategies for Novice and Advanced Hunters
Elk hunters, increase your chance of success with CPW’s free ‘Elk Hunting 101’ seminar, Aug. 17 in Grand Junction
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds elk hunters that now is the time to start planning for your fall hunts, both with boots-on-the-ground scouting trips and free seminars like CPW’s free ‘Elk Hunting 101’ class, scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 17 at the Hunter Education Building, 711 Independent Avenue in Grand Junction.
The one-evening seminar is offered through CPW’s Hunter Outreach Program and is co-sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Space is limited and registration is required. To reserve your spot call 970-255-6181.
“This is one of our more popular seminars because it covers a lot of ground and information that is very useful for both novices or experienced hunters,” said Dick Severin, assistant hunter outreach coordinator for CPW. “Success depends on how much preparation you do now, before the hunting seasons begin, so we encourage everyone to take advantage of the opportunity.”
The class will cover numerous topics, including basic elk biology, preferred forage, migration patterns, calling techniques, equipment and field dressing tips.
Colorado’s elk populations remain the largest in North America. Millions of acres of public land and the availability of unlimited over-the-counter licenses continues to attract hunters eager to enjoy excellent hunting opportunities in some of the most scenic areas in the country.
The Hunter Outreach Program teaches novice and inexperienced hunters the knowledge, skills, ethics, and traditions of hunting. Through workshops, clinics, seminars, and educational hunts, the program appeals to diverse interests, backgrounds and levels of ability, helping novices through the first steps toward becoming a part of Colorado’s hunting heritage and traditions.
