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.
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!!
What do you do with those empty nylon feed bags or dog & cat food bags? Can you say recycle? I use them for target practice for the youngsters. Take your empty shopping bags, stuff them into an empty nylon feed bag. You can also use old clothing or rags, (but put them in the bottom so it doesnt get top heavy). When your bag is full, fold the top over, punch some holes into the top and zip tie the top shut. Paint, draw, paste, or have the kids decorate their new target. Set it out 10 or 20...
