Broken X, I called Glens' place saturday taking a chance someone might answer but no luck. Another guy that may know is Larry D. Jones out of OR may try him in the beginning of the week. Otherwise I don't know if Elk follow the "doe-ray-me-fosil-ley-tee" well something like that? All I hear Elk do are highs and lows.
Broken X, when I lived in Ballard back in 97-99 I was a dive instructor at the Divers Institute of Tech, I use to catch quite a few of the traditional shoots and some of the mixed shoots back then.
Is your shop north of Seattle (Bothell)? Do you carry any traditional stuff? As far as Diver Dwayne I believe I've seen him at a shoot or two but we've never formally met. Is he the one with the boat cleaning business if he is I met one of his divers way back when (cute girlfriend).
When I wasn't out of town on a job I would always try to go elk or deer hunting which was far and few between. I'd spend more time in the off season scouting and finding game, wish I was into photography because I've been close enough to smell them. I'm hope my luck changes and I'll be able to get back in the loop again. I've been shooting over 20 years some in So. Illinois, Oregon and now here for about 6 years, I live north of Subase Bangor.
Good luck keep me posted and maybe we'll catch up with you later.
Out for now
Just Kidding - I have no idea! I would say most elk varry in actual pitch. Take a live recording of some elk bugling & then use a tuning fork, tuner, or various other devices for tuning a guitar, piano, etc. & try to match it up. I don't think you can say all elk bugle in the key of A# or C. Just like all turkey's don't yelp in C or E or all gobbles are in the key of B flat.
