Re: Bugleing elk!
Don't give up just because you think it is too late to call one in. On Nov 2nd we were cow-calling in Montana and got one within 80 yards, but I could not get a clear shot and his cows pulled him away eventually. The next day, in the same spot and probably the same bull, we bugled and he came charging over the mountain from the next valley. Even after I pumped the first of 4 hard hits into him he kept looking attentively at my spotter, who was still bugling at him the whole time.
