heard em hooting last night..

last night around 8pm- ish- wife and i unloading stuff from car, the bears were hooting like crazy. at least one on each side of road. one of them rght out behind house, within (maybe) 150-200 yrds. the one across road was on other side of pond, 250 yrds away. with a crystal clear night, sounds may have been further away. one out behind house sounded close enough to make hair stand up on back of neck!! Big smile --yeah!! awesome, when kids heard it three of the four took off like there buts were on fire!!! lol unfortunatly havnt been able to get out yet, :( --but after listening to them going back and forth last night, decided to stretch the day little further.

they kinda sound like an owl, -sort of- as far as calling them in i'm not sure. i'm still all to new to bear hunting. last year got skunked, they avoided me! lol but i'm sure there others here that can be of more help. very good question though. srry not much help on calling them.

Hoot? Never heard of a bear hooting. Are you sure that some one is not pulling your leg?

I don't know...... Think

I have seen bears do crazy things and heard them make crazy noises, but never a hoot like an owl. I have quite a few bear vocalizations on DVD and MP3, but none would qualify as a hoot.

Maybe a woof or snort could be construed as a hoot, but I would have to see/hear it to belive it.

i guess i'll have to check it out on some videos, maybe what i'm hearing is classified as something else. my neighbor is an 'old timer' (his words, not mine) thats what he refered to it as. like i said i'll see if i can come up with something. i'll post what i find.
