Bear calling

Anyone ever try using calls for black bear? Any information would be appreciated. I'm experimenting here in VT and wondered if anyone else has had any success.

Bear calling

The sow breeding moan works well, but primarily in Spring... But i've heard a boar will sometimes respond in the early fall. The aggressive bear calls are supposed to work well too.

Bear caling

Thanks for the information. I've been trying the aggressive calls in conjunction with cub calls. Believe it or not, I had a deer respond. Stayed just out of sight but would blow through her nose in response to my call. I guess curiosity can be a big factor in gane calling.

Have a good season.
