I'm guessing if they are going to talk, it's going to be in the middle of the night during that full moon on the first couple days of the season.

Although I'm not banking on them talking.  Not to say they won't come in to check out a bugle or cow call, but I kinda doubt they'll respond.

They are screaming in Snoqualmie Valley big time. Bulls are really searching for the one cow

Muzzy guys are going to do well

Cow calls will be your friend

I got a response using a cow call as a sort of immature bugle/scream on Saturday 8:45PM.

Good luck to all you pumkin slingers out there.  I'll be in the woods Saturday and I'll have a cow call in my pocket.  Who knows?

Called in at least one bull with a cow call last weekend, never put eyes on him though. Lots of bugling too.
