The Linguist is a new short film by Sitka that brings you through intense visual imagery on calling Elk - but also pays tribute to the pioneers of elk calling. Fantastic.

If you love elk hunting, then this 30 minute short film is for you. In typical Sitka fashion, the imagery, story, and tribute to the pioneers of elk hunting is classy and exceptionally well done.

Great mix of true legends of old and for sure some of the new.

Well done!

Linking the generational elk hunting path this video took is the best I can recall. Acknowledging these elk calling pioneers was very proper and deserving. Great men they are.

Many of us Dads were fortunate to pass the bowhunting passion on to our kids but few of us were able to document the events as well as you did. Well done Corey you are fine Son and Dad! C

Right on time as the Colorado bow elk season is just 26 days away. I have had the pleasure of meeting all of the "old timers" over the years and the passion for the hunt still burns strong in them. God bless each one of them for their contribution. my best, Paul

A great tribute of the pioneers. I watched the video of Isaac shooting his bull about five times......great video

SBH, I was about to say the same.....choked me up.

The whole thing gave me goosebumps.

What a great tribute to Will, Wayne, Rocky and Larry! Larry's videos were where it all started for me. I saw Elk fever at my uncles house when I was about 17. I also pretty much copied Larry's recurve shooting style from watching his videos and reading his articles.

Just watched it. If this doesn't inspire you to go bowhunting elk, you need your pulse checked. Awesome!

Saw the Randy Newberg podcast on this and could hardly wait to see it. I wrote to Sitka to thank them for putting this on. Very powerful and moving. When it seems like hunting is becoming more about inches and likes on social media this shows how I feel about hunting, the adventure is worth more than the kill. Helping others and passing on the hunting heritage is what it should be about.

What an awesome video. Corey is a hell of a guy, and watching his son take that bull gave me absolute chills. I can't wait for my son to be old enough to hunt with me.

Now follow up "The Linguists" with the Gritty Bowmen podcast Episode #266. They talk about the Sitka film......it's awesome!

From: GBTG

Awesome tribute to those involved for sure! Just have to throw one more name to my personal thank you list although not a call manufacturer.... Mike Lapinski the first I knew that talked about getting in close to make it happen. His videos were a hoot!

From: Barty1970

Epic. Abso-frickin-lutely EPIC. Kudos to Sitka and all the great elk callers...each of these legendary elk callers warrants a two hour documentary in their own right

Fantastic film. Makes me want go out and buy an OTC tag even though I don't have vacation time. Inspiring.

An amazing piece of artwork by Cana and Corey. Outstanding in every way. I've watched it over and over! Thank you for bringing us this piece of history! Is it September yet?

Very well done. Years ago, when we could hunt elk anywhere we wanted in Idaho, my buddy and I would pick an area and backpack in for a week, just to see new country. We found this great spot one year, and went back the next. After about a week, we started seeing strange looking hoof prints on the trails, and the tracks of some guy with size 14 boots. One day my buddy was heading back to camp and walked into another camp and it was Larry, Dwight and Jay, making the movie Elk Fever. They were in our spot, but since we had been there for a week, all they were finding were our tracks everywhere they went. They called us "those damn backpackers". We got llamas the next year.

Larry D. is quite the fisherman too, but don't let me try and help him land any from a boat.

I saved this for a rainy day watch, or just when I had the time. It was great ! I'm not an elk hunter, but I'm an avid elk hunter watcher ! It included some of my favorite people too, Larry D. ,Dwight Schuh, and Will Primos. Win, win, win !

Thanks for putting this up Pat, it was thoroughly enjoyable !

Corey is the man! Loved the video and will watch it again and again! It's all about the hunt and those amazing bowhunters in the early days. Makes me wish that I was in high country right now.

That was incredible! We need more quality video productions that represent the essence of hunting in a respectful manner, like this video. There has been a thread about outdoor tv recently and I agree with many of the comments. There are a few that I believe are good but many that I don't appreciate being associated with as a respectful, ethical hunter. If all hunting videos and productions had this sort of quality it would be wonderful and would put us as hunters in a much better light with the general public that are neither anti hunters or hunters. That is the group that will most likely influence our fate in the future.
