We were all told by our outfitter in advance to bring bear spray as the FS would not let them take any hunters without it. I was there during the rut and heard NO bugles. We found one small group of about 10 cows and a small bull on the opposited side of a canyon about 1/2 mile away. My guide cow called and the bull grunted back. Within 10 minutes there was a pack of wolves on them and they scattered like a covey of quail! My guide told me that happens a lot.
