First bugles of the year

I was on horseback at 2:00 in the afternoon and bull bugles at us three times, presumably because he heard the horse hooves clicking. It must officially be fall now

Bugles

This news should get people's blood flowing. Hopefully we get some cold weather soon to get the rest bugleing.

Glad you heard some.  I was

Glad you heard some.  I was out all weekend north of DeBeque and didn't even see a elk and only 5 deer.  The friend of mine that I was with couldn't figure it out but we came to the conclusion that the elk were midway on the mountain and not on the top like they usually are.  But it looks like he may have his work cut out for him when he heads out on the muzzle loader hunt. 

We did see tons of blue grouse (I refuse to call the dusky) with a lot of juvinals in the flocks.  We also got a few pictures of bears and a mountain lion on his trai cam.  I can say one thing that cat has been eatting well, he was a huge one.
