Elk bugling requires knowledge, skill and practice. I have witnessed some incredibly amazing bugles, coming from hunters, that even sounded better than the actual bull bugles-ha.
Everybody has their own tips and tricks on how to call in a bull, but a successful bugle ultimately comes down to sounding just like a bull, rather than a person trying to sound like one. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has an example on their website of a bull bugling and a couple of different cow calls, along with some facts about elk–click HERE. Hearing bulls and cows “talk” is important for anybody calling in elk. If you haven’t ever heard a bull bugle, chances are you will most likely just scare the elk away rather than call them in.
Below is a video of a hunter bugling that I recently recorded, and he got a response from a nearby bull. We want to see your bugling videos and get your tips. Post your videos on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/montanaoutdoor.
