Bull Elk Sounds: Bugles, Barks, Grunts and More

Why do Elk Bugle?

Elk bugle because they want to attract females by their sounds. They are calling for the females and trying to impress them. An elk can get more than 20 females at a time in a herd! If another male elk wants females, it would either have to try on its own, or be brave enough to try to steal the females from another herd. If an elk is brave enough to do that, the two males would fight by pushing their antlers against each other. They don't do it very often, although it's a real treat to watch it in action.

Rocky Mountain, Flora (Plants)

On the hillsides of the Rocky Mountains there are quite a bit of plants. Some of them are, lichens, wildflowers, mushrooms, and other trees and shrubs. Get ready for a nature walk, you won't believe your eyes.
