    late rut

    anyone else been seeing this late rutting going on? ive hunted elk in middle of oct for many many years and ive seen the post rut goin on with a few bulls but this last week it was no post rut. there was screaming going on everywhere! i was talking to several of the hunters hunting there and they all said the same thing, one ole boy called a big 6x7 in cow calling and others were doing the same.

    I saw some late rut activity watching a couple a groups of elk in the Salmon area last weekend. A few bugles and the bulls weren't chasing the cows much. With the 6 or 7 bulls around, only heard 2 bulls and that was early. Seems like the rut is about over in that area.

    Things are running later too here in NV. Early to mid September not much activity, then things are hot and heavy toward the last couple weeks and carries on into October for quite a while. Seasons are changing for some reason.

    Ditto for MT. Can't wait to kill a big bull on Saturday here in central MT!
