Joel Turner of Eatonville second in Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation calling contest

Eatonville resident Joel Turner took second place in the professional division during the recent 2012 Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation/Leupold World Elk Calling Championships.

In the professional division, competitors are required to make specific calls such as barks, whistles and screaming bugles. The amateur-level callers have 30 seconds to mimic cow elk sounds, followed by bull sounds.

The competition was held as part of the foundation’s annual convention and expo, which ended Feb. 4 in Las Vegas.

Bryan Langley of McMinnville, Ore., won the professional division, while Corey Jacobsen of Boise took third. Turner won the event in 2008.
