Never stop learning

I always had success calling elk in for my friends and myself. I never understood what I was doing and this really helps me to understand what I’m trying to say to the elk and what they are saying to me. I’m a solo hunter and the first time I used this in the field I had two giant bulls coming in to fight me. One was so close I couldn’t move or call and he stood for 15 minutes looking and chuckling trying to get me to show myself all I could see where antlers and eyes 320” bull minimum. The other bull was way smarter and way bigger and only hung around for 30 seconds. What was great is I knew how to make all the calls this showed me when to use them to say the right things. I never realized how much the bulls just want to come and fight. They responded to my fight calls more this year than any other calling sequence. Did not put a bull on the ground but sparked an old flame with a new understanding. The panting I have never used and wow that made this bull red eye mad. They do learn what you sound like fast though and after 4 days would not respond the same. Like to get some pointers there. And I have other sounds I’ve heard I’d love to know what they mean and are used for that you have never addressed or made note of. Thanks Paul for all the years spent to help us out. Is there a video for slow play coming soon would love to see that

Extremely Impressed

I just want to say how impressed I am with, not just Paul’s knowledge and experience, but with his willingness to help hunters learn how to become students of elk hunting. For $4.99 this app is a no brainer for any elk hunter wanting to become better at their craft. Elk hunting has never made more sense to me. I successfully called in a bull for a buddy in 2016 and it was really cool, but other than knowing how to cow call well I was clueless on what the bull was actually saying when he hung up at 184 yards in an open meadow. He kept nervous grunting and I was fascinated by the sound, but didn’t understand it. Now I understand what he was saying and why he hung up. I love the sequences, tactics, tips sections, videos, ability to record myself and compare my sounds to real elk and ElkNut sounds. To put it simply there is nothing else like this anywhere out there. It’s is cutting edge and worth it’s weight in gold to all elk hunters, even seasoned guys. Ever since I heard Paul’s podcasts I’ve been hooked. You guys rock. I wish it was fall right now!!! Your willingness to help people is very admirable. Get this app, you won’t be sorry!

Hear them out on changing to subscription

I have had this app for two years and it has helped my husband and I significantly with our calls and learning about elk communication. I have told my husband that it was crazy they only charged 10 dollars for the amount of information the app contained.

I was bummed when I saw it was moving to subscription, but I reached out to them, they responded promptly, and they explained that it was a very difficult decision. There are only 5 guys working on this app.

The amount of work, thought, and years of experience and education put into this app is definitely worth 15 dollars a year. And that certainly isn’t going to be enough to provide an income for any of them.

All we see are the videos and the calls in the app. We don’t know the time, cost, and effort that is required behind the scenes to have the app run smoothly and give us all of this awesome information.

The new update runs seamlessly and it’s apparent a lot of thought was put into this decision. Love seeing new tips, tactics, and sequences, too. The information put out in this app is unmatched and worth it. These guys are hunters just like we are. Don’t give them a bad review just because they are trying to figure out a way to keep making this app better for us.

Thank you guys for taking the time out of your lives to give us this great app!
