I spotted a shooter bull last night at about 1400 yards right at dark. He had 6 cows with him. Just for fun I bugled at him and he looked up but did nothing. I threw a couple cow calls and same thing. Is anyone getting any responses. I was hunting in the Helena area.

I was hunting a nasty pocket about 3.5 miles off the trailhead last Saturday and heard (I think...) 4 different bulls. One bull was bugling from his bed at 1:00PM (which of course led me to bust in and make sure he ran to the next county). One thing I have noticed is that probably 80% of the bugling I have heard so far has been before 8:30AM. Good luck this weekend!

I was in the gates this weekend and the only bugling was asking 4:30am and one or two right before dark but it was really hot last weekend. Should only get better from here my friend!

Hear in Colorado I received a phone call at 23:45, when I went outside to get better reception I could hear a bull bugling. Pretty awesome!
