My hunting partner suggested the baseball bats when he saw how them came in. And no I haven't tried calling them but have thought about it. After seeing the results from this guys video we just might try it next year.
I have a Randy Anderson preditor hunting tape here somewhere. On it, they are hunting in Arizona. It the hunt in particular, they have a bunch of grey fox coming. Toward the end of that part, the camera switchs to the guy doing the calling and out of nowhere come a grey fox that jumps at him. It hit's him right in the chest and takes off! Funny !
