Our Herd Members 

The Herd Members are the true stars of Elk Calling Academy. I love hearing their stories about their success, the lessons learned out in the field, and watching their confidence and skills grow. Here's what a few of the Herd Members have to say about Elk Calling Academy. 

Larry G

"Michael has a deep understanding of elk behavior, speaks their language, and teaches his students how to do the same. If you want to learn how to communicate with elk, dive into what Michael has to offer."

Anthony T

"Before starting Elk Calling Academy I had struggled through numerous instructional videos and apps trying to learn basic calls. It was clear I needed a coach. By the third week of joining ECA I had made 10x the progress of trying to self teach. If you want to learn calling, hunting strategy, eScouting, and even a little about life, I would whole heartedly recommend joining ECA and working one-on-one with Michael."

Jim G

"Our elk hunting has evolved after joining the Elk Calling Academy with Michael Batease.  After learning the elk vocalizations and blind calling techniques, it's a game changer.  I called a bull into my wife using one of his techniques, blind calling, it took 45 minutes to call him in to within 6 yards of her.  An experience I will never forget.  I would recommend the Elk Calling Academy to anyone!"

Joe C

"While there are a lot of resources and expert callers out there, I don’t believe there is another individual out there that covers everything the way Michael Batease and his Elk Calling Academy (ECA) does as comprehensively as he does when it’s all said and done. Michael offers access to pre-recorded videos and Wapiti Live Q&A that focuses on topics such as e-scouting, shot placement, reading the wind/thermals, and obviously calling among other things. When it comes to calling, he puts a huge emphasis on knowing more than just how to make the sounds, he focuses on what each sound truly means and I believe that makes all the difference when you finally find yourself in a real elk encounter in the woods.
