Greater Rocky Mountain Elk Show Scheduled


Summertime is not when you expect to hear the bugle of a majestic elk, but if you head over to the Idaho Falls Civic Auditorium later this month, your ears will ring with the call of the wild. That's because two world renowned elk calling champions, Al Morris and Dan Whitmus, will be sharing their skills and talents at the Greater Rocky Mountain Elk Show on July 22nd. Doors open at 5:30 pm, and the program starts at 6:30 pm. Cost per person is $10.00 at the door. Children 12 and under get in free. All proceeds generated from the event will go to benefit elk in eastern and southeastern Idaho.

Bring your whole family and enjoy the sounds of these two elk calling experts as they provide instruction on basic skills and cutting edge advanced tactics. The presenters will speak in detail about each type of call and how to use them, and will discuss tips for calling in elk during pre-rut, rut, and post-rut scenarios. The audience will be treated to fantastic video footage and elk photos as well.

Event organizer and a featured presenter, Dan Whitmus, says, "This is not going to be like any elk seminar you have seen before. Besides the demonstrations, there will be stories, laughter, twists and turns throughout the night-with some activities never done before a live audience. We have a few surprises up our sleeves."

Before and after the show, you can visit the Idaho Fish and Game Citizens Against Poaching trailer where you will see mounted wildlife and skins from illegally harvested animals. Learn the stories behind the seized wildlife, and take a few moments to visit with officers and biologists from Fish and Game. Various area sponsors dedicated to outdoor recreation and elk conservation will also have their product booths set-up. Check out the latest equipment available for hunting and other types of outdoor recreation.

The Greater Rocky Mountain Elk Show is sponsored by Taxidermy West, Teton Toyota, Idaho Department of Fish and Game, ASAT Camouflage, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Archery Idaho, Montana Decoy, and Digital Color.

"Our goal is to send people home arguing about which part of the event was their favorite," says Whitmus. "Then we hope they call their buddies to tell them they should have been there."
