I'm thinking of Gettysburg call from Rick
I'll tell you what I haven't felt a rush like that in a long time!! I'm addicted to trying to call bears in

It is NOT boring!!!!!  :)

Good info guys, thanks. I just started trying my hand at calling in an area where I know there are bears, but the density is pretty low. Using a cottontail in distress. So far, I am 0 for 2 sets, but apparently I haven't been calling long enough or waiting long enough. I have been employing my coyote rule (2 calls 15 minutes apart, sitting for a total of 30 minutes). I have yet to shoot a bear, so hopefully I will have something to post up this year! Thanks again for the tips and to the OP for posting the original question!

Called my first bear in on Saturday!! I only heard a couple twigs break and some bush moving and then he stood up about 15 yards in front of me and got me totally by surprise. I was knelt down and squealing and bam he was right there, it was a small bear to say the least but then he started kinda popping his jaws and making a sloppy chomping sound and within a second he was gone like a bull in a China shop

WTG!   :rockin:  It is incredible to me how loud the teeth popping can be.  Hard to imagine how the teeth keep from breaking!

Machias, good theory, something to consider and likely correct. 

Rick, thanks for the good words.  You are the man when it comes to calling WA bears.

0/2 isn't too bad.  I'm probably 18/300
