There are many sounds that researchers mistake for sasquatch. One of these is a domestic bull bellowing in the distance. The sounds can be very low and carry for a great distance. It bothers me to sit out on the deck at my home while my neighbor’s bull is carrying on. And that is 1/2 miles away and through the woods. It is not only the bellowing that bothers me but also all the grumblings and other sounds that bulls make to go along with it.
Recently I placed my recorder along the fence row that separates two pastures. The one bull comes up to this fence and paws the ground while he is vocalizing. Although they can see each other, the two bulls are separated by about 200 yards.
These two clips illustrate the bellowing that bulls can make.

This final clip is long, 43 minutes, but has so many sounds in it that I thought I would include it for anyone who wants to listen. This sequence has individual sounds from each of the two bulls, but in several places includes both animals bellowing at the same time.
