The elk rut is in full swing now. You can hear bugling bulls all over the refuge. The Bugling Elk Tours have been very good. Last Sunday evening was one of the best of the year. A nice bull came to drink at Medicine Tank while we were there. We were told by some passengers that had been on numerous elk tours, it was the best one they had ever been on.

Did you know elk bulls use wallows they have urinated in to attract and excite the ladies? This bull was still damp from visiting one.
