Event Details

The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge will be conducting "Bugling Elk" tours for the general public during September and October, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. The tours will take participants into the Refuge's Special Use Area during the height of the elk mating season, thus, offering a unique opportunity for wildlife viewing.
At this time of year the bull elk compete for available females to form their harems. To vent their feelings of frustration and aggression, the bull elk produces a high-pitched whistling sound. Tour participants have the opportunity to hear the bugling and to search for elk in their natural habitat. Other species of wildlife such as bison, white-tailed deer, and wild turkey are not uncommon during the tour although weather conditions make wildlife viewing opportunities unpredictable.
