For 10-Time World Champion Elk Caller, Corey Jacobsen, there is nothing like the high-country in mid-September. Finishing in the top 5 in the Professional Division at the RMEF World Championship Elk Calling contest 18 times in the past 19 years, he has become one of the most sought-after resources for elk calling and elk hunting instruction in the nation. In 2013, Corey was also named the RMEF's 'Champion of Champions". Corey recognizes that success on the stage doesn't necessarily relate to success in the field, however, and he lives for the “real” contest that takes place in the elk woods every September. It is there, on public land, over-the-counter archery units that he has been hunting elk for over 30 years.

Corey's passion for elk hunting led him to create, a website devoted to elk hunting education, instruction, and entertainment. offers a wealth of elk hunting information, along with interaction with other elk hunters, elk hunting videos, and gear. In addition to the standard content found on, Corey also created the University of Elk Hunting Online Course, a comprehensive resource for elk hunters of all experience levels, aimed at increasing their elk hunting success.

Now living in Donnelly, Idaho, Corey and his wife, Jennifer, have three children - Isaac, Jessi, and Samuel.
