Born in Yankton, South Dakota, Bogue received a B.S. from South Dakota State College in 1941 and was in the United States Army, Signal Corps during World War II, from 1943 to 1946. He received an LL.B. from the University of South Dakota School of Law in 1947, and entered private practice in Parker, South Dakota later that year. He was returned to the military as a Lieutenant in the JAG Corps from 1950 to 1952, and was thereafter a state's attorney of Turner County, South Dakota from 1952 to 1954, resuming his private practice in Parker from 1954 to 1957, and then in Canton, South Dakota until 1967.
