With elk season quickly approaching, here are a few tips on elk bugling that Team Primos uses to be successful in the elk woods.
The best way to blow a bugle is to place you upper lip on the support shelf with your lower lip just touching the edge of the reed. The harder you blow the higher the pitch. Higher pitch bugles are more intense and carry further on windy days.
To make that bull really aggressive, add a little bit of your own voice, add “errrrr.”
Another trick we like to use it to challenge the bull. Simply vibrate your lips and blow really hard with your lip against the edge of the reed.
Practice these three bugles and you will have a solid foundation for calling elk this fall.
