World Champion Elk Caller
For 9-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 17 times in the past 18 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 Elk101.com, a website devoted to elk hunting education, instruction, and entertainment. Elk101.com offers a wealth of elk hunting information, along with interaction with other elk hunters, elk hunting videos, and gear. In 2011, Corey teamed up with longtime friend, Dirk Durham, and launched Extreme Elk Magazine. In 2015, they sold Extreme Elk Magazine to Elk Hunter Magazine, and Corey is back in the saddle creating elk hunting content at Elk101.com.
Now living in Boise, Idaho, Corey and his wife, Jennifer, have three children – Isaac, Jessi, and Samuel.
