I don't know about colorado but here in north idaho very hot and no sounds. Still seeing piles of elk out scouting and shooting bow everynight! 14 DAYS and a wake up!

Well thought i heard one right up the mountain from where i live but if it was he had to be small, was just a good spike squeal. Been good around here lots of water temp is starting to get cooler expecting snow any time but so far just rain.
Been having a lot of problems out of bears here lately, got a bunch of bear proof containers so they figured out it was pretty easy to get in houses.

Thanks guys! This is my first time here, but it is pretty cool knowing there are others out there that share the same passion for these big critters that I do. Please keep me posted on the bugling!!!

I heard some cows mewing and chirping around last weekend. I also heard a couple of grunts that I thought sounded like a bull, but no outright bugles yet. Don't usually hear much of that 'till mid September around here. I think the earliest I've heard a bugle is the very end of August and that was more like a half-hearted squeek.

I am an outfitter in Colorado and we have been up in the high country (9,000 to 11,000 feet) for the last month scouting everyday. We have heard alot of cow talk but no bugles yet! We have seen lots of nice bulls & bucks though!!

Seasons starts in 9 days!!

Again, thanks for the info!

I am from Indiana and yes I have a trip planned to Colorado for elk hunting...can't wait! We will be there opening weekend, same as last year.

Whole different ball game for me, we got huge whitetails and lots of turkeys but no elk. For me it is like hunting turkey while respecting its nose of a whitetail!!

Hunted elk before, yes first time last year. Outfitter, no...

We had a great hunt last year, my buddy was able to harvest a very nice 5x5 with his recurve! lol
