MISSOULA, Mont. — It was a good day to be the defending pro champion, and an even better day to be a member of the Jacobsen family at the 2013 RMEF World Elk Calling Championships presented by Leupold in Las Vegas. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s “First Family of Elk Calling” took home three first-place finishes, two seconds, one third and one sixth.

“It was kind of a party down there for us,” said Corey Jacobsen of Boise, Ida.

Jacobsen finished a mere one point behind Bryan Langley of McMinnville, Ore., who successfully defended his 2012 championship in the Professional Division.

“It’s pretty exciting. You just get up there and call the best that you can and leave it in the hands of the judges,” said Langley. “Once you get to that level, all the callers are great so it’s really anybody’s ballgame at that point. I feel very fortunate to win. It’s really a blessing.”


Corey Jacobsen won the inaugural Champion of Champions, an invitational competition sponsored by Leupold that featured previous winners in the Professional Division from the first 25 World Elk Calling Championships. To do so, he had to edge out his father in two different tiebreakers.


“My mom was there and in kind of a hard place. She wanted to cheer for her son and cheer for her husband knowing she would console whoever didn’t win,” added Jacobsen. “If there’s someone who would beat us we’d rather have it be each other. It was definitely a humbling honor.”

In addition to his runner-up status in the Champion of Champions, Corey’s father, Rockie, also finished in third among the pros. Corey’s sister, Misty took top honors in the Women’s Division while his sons Isaac and Sam finished first and sixth, respectively, in the PeeWee Division.

“For me the highlight of the weekend was watching my 10-year-old win the PeeWee Division. My 6-year-old also made it in the finals up on stage,” said Jacobsen.

Dirk Durham of Moscow, Ida., won the Men’s Division while William Card of Fallon, Nev., topped the Voice Division and Greg Hubbell Jr. from Belmont, Calif., won the Youth Division.


Winners received prizes and cash ranging from $500 to $2,500. The Champion of Champions winner will take part in a premier archery elk hunt with Opal Butte Outfitters in Oregon to be filmed for RMEF’s Outdoor Channel television show Team Elk. The championships helped raise awareness of elk, habitat and the conservation initiatives of RMEF.

“The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is an awesome organization that supports the sport that we all love and there are a lot of great people who put on the Elk Calling Championships with a lot of great callers,” added Langley.

“I’m grateful for RMEF and the bigger cause it supports which is to pass elk and elk country along to our kids and future generations,” added Jacobsen.
