Hey Guys,

Heading to SW Montana in a week to archery hunt elk with my son, who moved out there 2 years ago. He's telling me he doesn't think the elk bugle much in the units we plan to hunt. While I haven't hunted there before, I hunted a unit in Wyoming last year on a limited draw tag that isn't too far from where we are going to be in Montana, and we heard elk bugle there. Any insight would be appreciated.

Elk bugle everywhere from my experience. If he isn't into calling elk, he isn't in the elk. They do get more daytime silent in areas with high hunting pressure.
