What Was That Horrible Sound?

My wife was out for a walk in Horseshoe Bend (the nearest town to us), and she heard a horrible sound that at first she thought was the pained cry of a horse breaking its leg in a gopher hole.  Her friend walking with her is married to a game warden and is an Idaho girl, explained that was a bull elk bugling.  Shortly thereafter, the female elk responded.

I was camping at Jennie Lake last year about this time, and the male elk bugling from the surrounding mountains kept us awake most of the night. One sounded like he was getting progressively closer to our camp, but luckily the sun came up before he got there.
