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.
