Any bugling yet?

Just wondering if anyone is hearing any bugling yet, since the temps are still so high?

I haven't heard of anything

I haven't heard of anything in Utah just yet. They usually don't start for another couple weeks around here though.

I heard a couple of them the

I heard a couple of them the second week of August in Southern Utah first thing in the morning.  It was a weak one but it was a bugle.  We were above a heard of around 60 cows, calfs, and small bulls while they feed in a meadow.  I believe that the one that let loose was a small 4x4.  The larger bulls were still up high on the hillside a half mile away from the heard.

Heard back from some customers

While they were getting into the elk, the mature bulls were mostly quiet still.

They are starting to heat up

They are starting to heat up in RMNP. The park rut is normally a week and a little ahead of surrounding areas in Colorado.
