This is my first season bear hunting. I hunted with dogs as a little kid.
I decided to give calling a go for my first season. I've had good luck! I've learned a lot. Read Billythekidrocks article Good stuff.
I've used a few different calls with different results.
Snowshoe Hare distress call-1st. time got a Grizzly
2nd.& 3rd. time-sow with cub in different areas.
Elk cow/calf- Both times Grizzlies different areas. Done doing that!
Fawn distress- Sow with cub in different area than the others. Twice. 3rd. time out saw nothing!
Rabbit distress- Coyote who got chased away by a grizzly.
Coyote who barked at me when I got up because I didn't know he was there.
No black bears that are legal game.
Could there be something I'm not doing or doing wrong?
I've tried different altitudes, habitats, etc.. I called today where I saw fresh tracks and scat without cub tracks. Sow w/cub.
