Yellowstone’s Fall Symphony: Wildlife Expeditions elk bugling, wolves & bears safari

Yellowstone wolf

A sound that could be described as both thrilling and bone chilling, the dramatic high-pitched bugle of a 700-pound bull elk is the lead in the wild seasonal symphony of Yellowstone National Park each fall. The best way to locate and listen to such unique moments is on one of Wildlife Expeditions of Teton Science Schools’ fall elk bugling, wolves & bears safaris. The three-day wildlife adventures take guests on a magnificent foliage-filled tour through Yellowstone’s backcountry, seeking wolves and bears on the prowl as the elk calls ring through the forest.

Expedition guests travel in comfortable customized Mercedes-Benz Sprinter safari vehicles into Yellowstone’s legendary Lamar and Hayden Valleys – known as America’s Serengeti for their rich wildlife offerings – with stops at iconic Old Faithful, the colorful Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and the terraces of Mammoth Hot Springs. Wildlife Expeditions’ experienced guides have the inside scoop on wildlife activity in the park, leading the small-group safari, which departs from and returns to Jackson Hole, Wyo., into prime spotting opportunities.

The Fall Elk Bugling trip is offered five times in 2017: Sept. 7 – 9, Sept. 14 – 16, Sept. 21 – 23, Sept. 28 – 30 and Oct. 5 – 7. Rate for the expedition is $1,450/person and includes two nights’ lodging in Cooke City, Mont., all meals, snacks and beverages, high-quality binoculars and spotting scopes, National Park Service entrance fee and more.
