I still heard some bugling through this last weekend, but it seems to have died down this week. I'm in northwest Colorado and the rut usually ends by about the first of October around here.

Good luck on your elk hunts!

Usually the rifle seasons are completely out of the rut, especially seasons 2-4. If you want to hit the peak elk rut, you'll have to go archery.

Or muzzleloader. That season is usually the second week of September.
