Come to think of it, I have noticed later than usuall bugling the last couple of years... at least the year before last. Didn't get out much last year.

Re: Elk talk

last night i was heading up a ridge wher i knew they would cross,
hadn't gone more then 300 yards and a rip snort bugle came from my right.
I tossed around just intime to see it depart over the ridge.
i guess i had smacked my partner at he time, but didnt notice.
then all crap cut loose.
they were infront of me, to the left side then the right.
I currled up to lissen.
there infront of me popped up a couple cows then some more.
as I sat there curled up they walked to with in 20 yards,
then past me, not once showing me any concern.
I had good cover-up sent on and my camo blended in perfictly.
wow! that was cool but where were the bulls.
I hit my cow call with a couple mews and instantlly got a scream from the right side, jurking ever so slightly and stairing into the shadows of the dark timber i catch some movement.
could it be my bull?
nope just a nother cow and she was going to cut the same trail as the last ones.
she was being followed by something cause she kept looking back.
she gave a slight mew bark which was followed in by a mew in responce by something on her far side and just a little back, 2 caves.
This is so sweet to see, so close, and no clue I even there.
Then a small spike appeared in the side of a distant knole on the side of the hill.
Called a couple times w/ just short squells.
then headed towards the cows.
He stopped short, say 50 yards out, when
from just aroung, behind, and in back of a couple anchent huge old groutho pines, came this horific bellow. had heaard bull all over it.
sh--ittttt, just about crapping my camo,
I fipped around,
my partner grabbed me and shook me vilantly.
jim jim jim ----what,,what,
jim wake up your having those dreams again came from her mouth.
8 days from know I'll know the rest of the story.
