Hey guys, thanks for helping me out with this!  I took a look at the
parametric equilizer settings sent by John Hartog, and I listened to
the recording edit from Aaron Ximm.  The parametric equilizer you are
dealing with, John, looks a lot different than the one I have on Sound
Forge 8.0.  I will try to duplicate your work on my software tonight
if I have time.  There is nothing labled "Q" anywhere, which is making
things difficult!  The edited clip from Aaron sounds about like what I
was able to do with the SF 8.0 parametric equilizer "hiss reduction"
setting centered at 827 Hz.  Is it just me, or do our elk sound like
they are underwater once the hiss is removed?  This may be something I
am going to have to live with, because it seems at this point that I
can either have background hiss or aquatic elk :)

Is the high level of hiss in our recordings due to equipment quality,
or some other parameter?

Once again, I appreciate all of your help!  I have decided to record
the marsh sounds this spring/summer when all of the frogs come out.  I
also want to record the squeek of a surprised muskrat.  This stuff is
pretty cool!
Take care!
