Del Norte/Wolf Creek Pass Area, CO, Unit 81, 80, 79, 78 &

Does anyone that has been around that area or lives in that area know if the elk are bugling yet? Has the rut started? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks Guys and Good Luck this season.

The rut has started not quite in full swing yet but the bulls have been bugling for a couple of weeks now not to often though. there are plenty of elk down here there has been a confirmed 3,000 elk in the region

Thank you for the responce.

I will be down in this area the last week of archery season (sept 21-28).

Do you think they will still be in the rut by then? Any tips for a beginner archery hunter. i have an OTC E.S. Elk Tag and a Buck tag.
