I volunteer for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. This morning I conducted an elk count on some ground just south of Denver. The bugling was intense. I counted 22 separate branch antlered bulls, three of which were humongus (like Greenhorns). I watched four different pairs of bulls sparring. Interstingly, I only saw one cow. Pretty cool, especially given that this area is only four miles from my house. I wish I had taken a camera.... I would have had some great pics to share.
