Matt, 8, is the son of Fred and Donna Lux and is a second grader at Faulconer Grade School. This is the third year the young- ster has competed. He plae third last year in Reno, Nev., and com- peted for the first time at age 5 in Seattle. Making elk calls "is kinda fun," Matt said. "I get to be with my dad and he knows when I make a good bugle. He hunts elk and I bugle." Matt's bugling paid off for his dad last September when he bagged a spike elk that the youngster had called. Bugling for elk is easy for Matt. "You just put your tongue up to the top and blow and it sounds like an elk." Matt has learned how to sound like a bull elk calling for cows and also how to do a bull elk's bark, the sound the animal makes to alert the herd of danger. The youngster hopes to eventually bag his own elk. "I'd like to bow an elk when I'm older," Matt said, explaining how he'd rather use a bow and arrow than a rifle to hunt. Matt waveled to Denver with his dad. In past years his morn and younger sister have also gone to the contests. He may travel to Salt City next year to compete and is looking forward to the 1993 compe- tition in Portland.
