We live in a rural area outside Denver at about 8400' and we usually see elk throughout the summer. This year we've seen very few, but last night was different. We had a herd of at least 8 legal bulls (there might have been more - I couldn't see all of them) and several cows and yearlings. All the velvet was off, though some still had a piece or two hanging on the antlers. Two of the really big 6x6 bulls were sparring. I heard one bugle, but it was earlier in the day, and the only sounds they made were mews, even from the bulls.
My neighbor bow hunts the area, but I usually don't as I feel like it's not a fair chase if I can shoot an arrow from my bedroom.
Sorry for the blurry pics. It was right as dusk and it was the best I could do with the small, point and shoot camera I have.
