Mr. Chuckles

(Remember to pause music at the bottom of the page prior to hitting play)

As mentioned in my previous post, here is a short clip of the bull we encountered last weekend. The video / sound quality isn't the greatest since it is taken from my camera, but you can still hear him answer back from the dark timber below us. The first few bugles are from my husband enticing the bull to respond. I unfortunately cut off the bull's response a bit too soon, because he proceeded to give us about 10 chuckles after he bugled. Since he continued to chuckle all afternoon we nicknamed him Mr. Chuckles.

A couple more days until we will be trying again, looking for Chuckles. We are determined to find him or any other of his friends out there and will continue until we are worn out. As Winston Churchill said.. we will "never, never, never, never, never.... give up." I know that the connotation of this statement has much greater meaning than chasing bulls. However, I believe that whatever goal you are chasing in life should be done with gusto. Chase your dreams. Live out your goals.


  1. I agree. If you're going to go after something, you might as well give it your all.

    Good luck going after Mr. Chuckles or any of his closest friends.

  2. As you probably know, I am not a hunter, however I have enjoyed your last couple of posts on elk hunting. I love a bugling elk. One of the great sounds of the outdoors. Good luck with Mr. Chuckles!
