    This is amazing. My wife got this for me as a Christmas present and I could not stop reading it! I’ve been elk hunting all my life with mixed success. I started bow hunting about 3 years ago but never really understood calling. Corey does an excellent job explaining how to call properly and different tactics, some of which I have learned over the last couple of years but never understood why or how they were working. I would highly recommend this course to anyone especially if you have never hunted elk before. I know a lot of people that would have given anything to have this information years ago and I honestly believe that ANYONE can learn something from this course.

    Thank you To Corey and the rest of the UEH crew

    This course was awesome! I learned so much and made me realize a bunch of things I could have done different in situations. Thanks for sharing all your knowledge and wanting to help other hunters be successful. I look forward to using everything I’ve learned on this up coming season!

    I have been elk hunting since I was 6 months old getting packed around on my dads shoulder (not a lot of success until I reached the ripe old age of 12 for some reason) but that was exclusively as a rifle hunter, as I have converted/transitioned into the world of archery I find myself becoming more of a student of all things elk, probably in order to shorten the learning curve that I spent decades just being immersed in as a rifle hunter and that comes as second nature for that type of late season hunting. This course has taken years off that journey, the first several bow hunting seasons were exciting, action packed and ultimately unsuccessful … this course has changed that for me and I can’t thank Corey and all the rest of the Elk101 team, and specifically the University of Elk Hunting course for helping me further my hunting knowledge and deepen my love for elk hunting.

    Thanks Corey. I’ve been on 6 elk hunts, all amazing, no tag filled…the last being 18 years ago, so what I’d learned was certainly rusty. I’m grateful for the information and hope to put it to use fall 2018. I will need to up the conditioning for this 64 year old body, but I believe that will happen.
    This training is invaluable to any, especially the first time hunter. You have made the elk hunt more achievable for those who want to pursue it. It’s a tough hill to climb for most of us in the east…pun intended.
    The value is A+.
    Thank you,

    Great Course Corey!
    I had the opportunity last year to go on a great trip into the Northern Rockies in BC. I had never bugled or called anything in before but the info in your course gave me enough knowledge to call in 2 over 380 bull elk. And this September I called in my own 6×7 elk near my home in Northeast BC. I couldn’t be happier! Great diaphragms and great course. Recommended to everyone who has questions about calling or hunting

    Thanks Again

    Fantastic course, Corey!! The late-season section came just in time, too. I have very little bowhunting experience, but now in my mid-30’s, aspire to in the elk woods with a bow in hand. All the chapters that relate to bowhunting are super helpful, easy to read and well articulated. I’m excited to complete the course a 2nd and 3rd time in the next year and would recommend this course to anyone interested in improving their tactics. Thanks again for your transparency, Corey. This is a really a work of art! AV

    Before I took this course I was mostly wandering around the bush, using bits of this information and bits of that, but never going out with a complete picture in mind. After taking this course I felt confident that at the very least I wasn’t going out blind and that I had a solid base to work from. Of course, experience is important so this year I went on a week long hunt with three other experienced hunters. The knowledge I gained from this course allowed me to understand the methods they were using and why they were using them. After targeting a specific bull we made three attempts from three different directions and on the last day myself and a partner put it all together. Using the bull’s feeding pattern and paying close attention to the wind, we intercepted him at 20 yards and I put my bullet through his lungs and heart. He dropped in 5 yards and I had my first bull! We used the gutless method, boned out the meat and eventually made contact with the other two and packed the meat out, finishing in the dark with headlamps, exhausted. But very happy. Thanks Corey!

    In preparation for my first archery elk hunt this fall, I have scoured the internet looking for elk hunting content that would help me along in this adventure. The University of Elk Hunting is THE most comprehensive content I’ve seen. I didn’t know where to start or even what I needed to plan for. Corey walks you through EVERY step from planning your hunt and obtaining a tag, to knowledge of elk behavior and strategies, to calling and setups, to shot placement, elk anatomy, and quartering/deboning for pack out. Not to mention all of the great tips and encouragement along the way. I started this course with little to no knowledge and completed it with total confidence for my upcoming hunt. I fully believe that Corey is as interested in my success as he is in his own, and it shows in the course. This is a MUST HAVE course for anyone serious about elk hunting. Well done, Corey!! I can’t thank you enough!!

    I have hunted archery for over 40 years . I have shot moose,elk ,whitetail,mule deer and birds. I am an engineer and love to teach and learn about everything. Cory has done an excellent job with his course and I found it very well put together! I am leaving n.y. tomorrow for a hunt in colorado and my 44 foot camper is full of gear but the one thing I wont leave behind is the good tips corey instilled in me. let the wind be your friend not your foe ! thanks corey

    I am 67 and live on the near the east coast. I have been on 3 DIY Elk hunts without bagging a Elk. I did a lot of things right but just couldn’t get the job done. With Corey’s instruction I can see where I could have been much more prepared for success. From small tips on the importance of making one’s self comfortable in camp (bringing a pillow etc) to understanding what I’m saying to the Elk when I use a call. He lays it all out in good order and simple terms everything during the hunt and after the game is down to make the hunt a success. I’ve never felt more ready to go on a archery hunt than I do now! Thanks Cory!

    Damn….. I must admit its the most informative and complete content you can find about killing elk! Live in Eastern Oregon and hunted elk all my life. I Hunt archery seriously and believe I know how to chase, communicate, irritate, pursue and kill elk, but Corey nails it on details how to be successful. He, like me are students and we are always learning and adapting to elk. His topics and suggestions along with his experience and recommendations are exactly lined with my techniques and experiences from the battle field. His ideas are real and work!!! I read multiple paragraphs that I could have written myself….as if we were hunting partners for the last 25 years. I have pages of notes that I review every year to study up for the up coming season…a composition of my techniques and updated thoughts about how to kill an elk. Now Corey has done the exact same thing but in better detail and depth…..Nice work…..I would grade his research and knowledge an absolutely A+….. The only downside is he has shared the holy grail of information to the masses on how to kill bulls during the rut…..just makes more competent hunters out there that I now have to compete with.. I respect my knowledge as a hunter, but Corey has my upmost respect for his diligence and work as an archer!!! Nice stuff Professor!!

    I waited 4 weeks before my next elk hunt to finally take the course. So glad I did ! learned some stuff I didn’t know about elk hunting . I’ve been on 20 elk hunts and brought home 13 bulls. If this course was available 20 years ago I know I could have harvested 19 out 0f 20 hunts ! I knew a fair amount about elk hunting , but I didn’t know this much as in ELK101 ! THANKS COREY !

    I’m only about a third of the way through but have learned quite a bit so far. I will have to run through the course a few times with the amount of knowledge there is to digest. As a new hunter without any close mentors, this course definitely fills the void. Easily worth much more than the asking price, I can’t wait to start putting what I’ve learned into practice.

    Excellent job Cory!
    My archery elk experiences have been some of the most thrilling times of my entire life… and that was with minimal successes under my belt. I first heard you on the GB podcast and was excited to hear about elk101. While I felt I had the basic concepts of archery elk down, I was desperate to take my knowledge to the next level and you, my friend, provided just such a platform.
    I found your course concise and to the point, taking me from early season through a stuffed freezer in a manner that was informative and actually rather addictive… I blew through it all in week or so. The text was written by hunters for hunters and the videos were extremely helpful and very well done.
    You have boosted my confidence to get it done this year by ten fold. As you mentioned, confidence is a key element to success, and you have taken mine to new heights!
    Thanks again for all you do Cory ( and your crew)!

    Corey, I’ve hunted big game for most of my life; roughly 30 years. Elk hunting is hard and it should be; its what makes it sweet in the end. Your knowledge has helped me in several areas, so first thank you. Second, I’m grateful for the time and effort you’ve spent adding all of this information for all us to enjoy. Third, I’ve personally read and re-read every module at least 6 to 8 times. Some modules more so than others. Modules on thermals, scouting and finding those sweet spots has change the way I look at a mountain, even when I’m out fishing the Rocky Mountains. Finally, I was a solid hunter before UEH, now I’m more confident, sound in my approach, more confident on when to call and, more importantly, how to call when I need to challenge a bull or when to sound like a sweet cow! This course has become my “go-to” when I’m not 100% sure about a certain setup or situation. 100% worth every penny! 5 out of 5 stars!

    I have been hunting for about 30 years and elk hunting for the last thirteen. I started out as a rifle hunter then picked up bow hunting thirteen years ago when I moved from
    Alaska to Oregon. I have never read a more comprehensive resource of information on hunting, let alone elk hunting. I wish I had this resource available when I started as a lot of the information provided in this course took me years to learn on my own. In this course Corey covers in detail the equipment you need, where to find elk, why elk do what they do, and how to talk to them. Corey also tells you specifically how to kill elk after you get them to come into a call, what to do once your elk is down, and how to get your meat out of the mountains . Elk hunting like life requires knowledge, confidence, and persistence; this course will provide the first two; you gotta do the rest. I think you’ll enjoy this course and find the information well worth the price, I certainly did. Happy hunting.

    Worth every penny, whether you’re just getting started and have been hunting for years. My brother in law just started hunting so I joined this year so we can watch the videos together after practicing with the bow, amazing how much this ended up educating me. From locating elk, to thermals, prep before season and even what to do after the harvest this product is amazing.

    Well done Corey!

    Wow! Where to begin. Corey let me first start by saying that your course went way beyond my expections not only in areas I was focused on learning but brought to light many areas that I had overlooked or not even considered at all. This is exactly what I needed. Not having the opportunity early in life to hone the skills as well as experience these amazing animals, your course has really filled the void for sure. Now being at a place in life where my hard word has paid off I am able to dive in and start experiencing these incredible animals. Your demeanor, expertise and methodical approach not onlly made the course clear and concise but easy to follow and understand. Having renewed my membership now for the second year I plan on doing so for years to come. The information is greatly appreciated and your course is a great tool toward future success. I found your knowledge, expertise and your generosity to share with others very compelling. The obvious time, effort, organizational skills you have that went into this course really reflects your commitment and generosity to share with others. Thanks You!

    I feel this course has improved my knowledge and answered a lot of “why” scenarios. I appreciate the start to finish layout of the course that truly encompasses everything. With this knowledge I feel like I have an organized toolbox that I can reach into and use many different tools for very different jobs. My confidence has been boosted and I feel this year will be a great success. Can’t wait to hit the mountains.

    Thank you for sharing your knoeledge. I started elk hunting with a group a couple of years ago. My first serious attempts at hunting elk in Northern British Columbia. I was both thrilled by the experience of my friends calling elk and getting some responses but also disappointed at the seemingly haphazard approach and the lack of strategy utilized. Mostly hoping to get lucky.
    Your course has provided a whole new perspective, the knowledge I needed, and a strategy for hunting elk that I was missing. My partners are starting to shun me as I keep talking about this new knowledge. Now for executing the plan. Can’t wait to get out there.
    Thanks again.

    You never get enough knowledge about elk. But you have shorten the long list of mistakes and hopefully will help out with my continue success. I have been lucky to draw out of state OTC tags the last 2 years there in Idaho. I am batting .500 for the four years of archery hunting elk. I’m 61 and am starting to feel the aches and pain a little more. But you have helped me by getting my strength for the hauling out the meat which I will hope to do again. I do hunt mule deer at 10,000 feet and with starting with a childhood friend we have been hunting elk in Idaho. I took us some time to find them but once on them the learning had begun. I read and watched as much as possible and it did help the second year with success. Now with your help on the calling and locating and getting them to get closer I think I will continue to be successful. I have already made options to the area that we hunt and have gotten my wife to help double up with me. The terrain is not as steep but once you get the meat on your back nothing seems to be flat. So the locating and calling, strength exercise and caring of meat has helped me to make it a little easier and to prolong my archery elk hunting adventure. Every elk hunter should join the University of Elk Hunting and like you said it will help all hunters be successful and cut short the learning process. Originally this is what I wanted to do was to shorten the process but every elk contact is different. I have been one of the lucky ones but they don’t just show up to the door step you have to work hard which I have done this year to go a litter farther out if I have too. But I sure wish I’m next to camp at the mud pond and a good size bull comes in and the wind is perfect and can let the arrow fly. But I’m dreaming and that would take the fun out of the adventure. Thanks for all the knowledge and hope we all have successful adventures.

    I have dreamed of coming out west to hunt and plan on doing so every year if I can. I put it off because everyone seemed to be busy or said next year, well I decided I am going this year solo because I can’t wait another year. I have been watching Randy Newberg for years and one day, Corey Jacobson was hunting with him and announced this elk hunting university he had put together and I had to check it out. With a September hunt in front of me I hit the course hard and have learned a lot. The “ELK SHAPE” course was motivating to say the least, and have since been running and hitting the gym to prepare. I know this course won’t guarantee anything but it has given me CONFIDENCE, which is half the battle, and I feel that I am going into this with the knowledge of someone that has hunted elk for years. Thank you Corey…..

    Excellent course! I have been out of the game for the past 15 years after growing up in the elk woods. I thought the content was great and the advise was very transparent. I am headed out west to put some of my new found techniques into practice and have already begun to recognize the error of my ways on last year’s hunt. I plan on going through the course at least 1-2 more times before this fall. Thanks Corey for a great product!!

    So I’ve been elk hunting for almost 10 years now with a bow. I was a self taught hunter, and gradually increased my knowledge year by year but just couldnt get it done. The past 3 years I’ve been getting closer, but I think it’s been shear luck. I recently relocated with my Job and had a co worker tell me about Elk101, and I decided to give it a try. Freaking phenomenal, I feel like I know have what Ive been needin and looking for to finally get from just hunting to actually harvesting an Elk this year. I am so excited for the Archery season to start. This course has provided me with so much information and I’ve been ablessed to take my past experiences and have that ah ha moment. No matter what your experience level this course is going to help you out. Home run Corey, and thank you for sharing your knowledge.

    I have been bow hunting elk for the past 10 years and have harvested one raghorn, I should have had a bull every year my first four years out but missed shots, however after that my success or beginners luck wore off and I was able to get “into” them but just haven’t had the close encounters , I wanted to read Cory’s program to pick up anything that will help, and I have some new ideas on things I was doing wrong that was blowing my opportunities. Also I have never been confident with mouth reeds but with some instruction that I had never heard until the course I am able to use a reed without gagging or losing the seal. I still have to master the estrous cow call but overall can’t wait to try some calling this fall. I,am excited to try some new tactics to hopefully harvest a mature bull this year!

    This was a terrific course, Last trip I did Elk hunting was a number of years ago with a guide and while they did a great job I can’t help but think of how much more the trip would have meant had I first taken this course, not to judge the tactics of the guide but to add a level of confidence on my part to understand why the guides would do what they did. I recall the afternoon when I ultimately shot a rag horn that the guides and my hunting partners opted for a nap, and not being a napper he had me sit on an overlook of a meadow. I later heard some bugles and got responses to my cow calls but was too nervous to move in closer and rather waited for the guide, and with the knowledge gained through this course I would have jumped at the opportunity to move in…planning a self guided trip to Idaho this September which I am gaining confidence in weekly as the trip draws nearer.

    I have hunted elk for 25 years without success, mostly with a rifle. I had a great friend get me into archery hunting rutting bull elk about 6 years ago… and OMG! I was hooked for life! I chased rut crazed bulls for the last 6 years, never getting the outcome I had so longed for…that very first bull elk on the ground. I purchased this course last year, and as a result, I killed my very first bull elk, a 5×4 that same year. The UEH course made a tremendous improvement in my confidence ans knowledge. Of course with the help of that very good friend, I have finally acheived the ultimate goal of being successfull in the September elk woods. So much so, that I’m renewing this year! Amazing course. Thank you!

    Am glad I took the course. My father and I elk hunted once with a guide. It was an unsuccessful venture. Of the 6 Hunters in camp 1 ended up with a “legal” bull after 5 days of weather setbacks and lack of finding the elk. Could have used this knowledge then, I will hopefully be able to draw and put it to use. Now I am actually thinking more and more about a solo archery hunt. I thought about it before, but would have had no idea how to begin to even attempt to be successful. I’ve only hunted deer in western Nebraska beside that guided hunt in New Mexico.

    I am a long time hunter who converted to bowhunting about 9 years ago at the age of 52 at the urging of my nephew. I had hunted whitetail’s exclusively and continued to do so but about 7 years ago I was introduced to hunting Elk in the rut with a bow and every other hunting experience paled in comparison. It has been a consuming passion ever since!

    Since I was a little late to the Elk bowhunting party, I began to read every article, watch every DVD, and talk to every experienced bowhunter about the sport. That journey didn’t take long to find Corey. His calling and experience and patient, honest teaching in the UEH Online Course couldn’t have come along at a better time for me. What an incredible resource for those of us who need a fast track to catch up on valuable Elk hunting techniques with an ongoing resource. I signed up as soon as I could and just renewed as I don’t want to miss out on a single piece of information that might just be the difference in sealing the deal on my next fall Elk adventure.

    I would recommend the UEH online course to anyone as I have not seen anything more up to date, relevant, thorough, and easy to understand. Thanks to Corey and to all who make this information possible.

    We all want to be the kind of hunter who beats the odds of one elk every 9 or 10 years. How about more like bagging an elk every year? To be that kind of hunter takes decades of high quality trial and error OR an extremely generous mentor who truly understands what it’s like to work up the learning curve because he’s done it himself.

    Corey’s Elk101 is like having the elk hunting mentor you wish you had…in your pocket…no matter where or when you have a question!

    Most of us only get a one week shot at our elk per year, and after thousands of dollars of investment it’s crazy to not spend another $100 to make it all come together. Corey under-promises and over-delivers. Buy this course and receive the equivalent of 10+ years of elk hunting experience in just one season. And while you’re at it, makes some new friends through the amazing communities Corey has created for members.

    At first i was skeptical about buying the online course because i figured, 100 bucks.. are you kidding me to read about some tips that i could probably find somewhere else. you must be crazy? and then I thought to myself there has to be a reason so many people are buying it and I finally decided to buy it. and Ive only been elk hunting for 5 years now but as a kid who had to teach himself really his own stuff (other than simple tips from other people) and me having to find my own spots i’m really kicking myself with how i didn’t hear about this sight when it first came out! this this is easily worth every penny of the price! I just wanna thank Cory for openly giving out his wisdom he has on the game of elk hunting. By far the most help I’ve ever been given and i feel 110% more confident with this next Archery season. I realized all the mistakes i’ve made and how to fix them over the video and can’t wait for this coming September. if you’re serious about hunting Elk then this is a must read!

    If you just started hunting elk, have been doing it for a few years like me or have been doing it your whole life, you need to take this course. I have literally went through every chapter 3 times now and keep picking up on things I’ve missed. I’m from the Midwest so I have a huge disadvantage over you westerners when it comes to elk knowledge and just being used to the higher elevations, but this course has helped me level the playing field in most other areas. If you can put in the work to get in shape and be as deadly as possible with your weapon, Corey has put together everything else you need to make your hunt successful. I’m not saying that just taking this course is going to guarantee you will kill an elk, but if you study this guide, are consistent and work hard, it is going to extremely help. Thanks Corey for taking the time and energy to put this whole thing together. I’ve recommended it to everyone I know that hunts elk. Also if you haven’t watched Russ Meyer’s video for getting into elk shape, you should. That guy is a bad ass. I don’t even think he gets winded during his whole workout.

    “If only this information was available when I first started elk hunting.” This comment is one we hear so often in the first few sentences of a review of Corey Jacobsen’s University of Elk Hunting. While that statement is 100% true, I believe that it is just a small description of how this information is so valuable. For the rookie or novice elk hunter, all the way through the ranks to the most experienced successful elk hunters out there, this Course provides incredible value.

    Even though I have been elk hunting for over 30 years and been fortunate to take a few nice bulls and cows along the way, what I found in the University of Elk Hunting is an unmatched level of detail, quality of information, and specific direction. I started hunting initially with a rifle, and for the last 21 years with a bow and arrow. This program is for everyone regardless of what method of take you prefer. What I value most, is that this information is available NOW.

    To reiterate, this information is available now and not just in “one-shot”…this is a “living, dynamic program”. As our individual needs change, so do what we take away from the program. For example, whether you are hunting that well-known, stand-by OTC unit or you drew that once-in-a-lifetime coveted tag, there are key takeaways in this course for me to hone my ability and be successful each year as my needs change.

    For instance, last year after I went through the whole program, I came back and focused on the “where” to hunt and the “how to” find new hunting locations utilizing the tools Corey presented and explained. I am still in this process, and with boots on the ground again this year, I am confident that I will be into elk this September. This year, as I work my way through the program, I am going to revisit and refine my hunting techniques and practice my calling. Knowing this is an area that I need to improve, and with Corey’s help and instruction, I am confident I will.

    As a dynamic program, I have the flexibility to pick and choose what I want and need to bolster my hunting experience when I have time or when it fits into my schedule. Plus, as I mentioned, it is “living” program, with Corey committed to the continual improvement and refinement of the overall program. Much like his new diaphragm elk call, the perseverance that went into the design of that call is the same methodology that goes into this program. I, for one, look forward to making this part of my hunting experience every year that I am fortunate enough to be able to pursue such an animal as the American Elk.

    Thank you Corey!
