I've heard bobcats in late winter that sounded like that. But also agree that a bear cub could be making the sound. Didn't think a recorded sound until it was brought up, but if someone had access to it on a Foxpro, it could prove successful in calling in a momma bear or even a mountain lion. Early morning would also suggest someone hunting and using a electronic call.  :twocents:

My first thought was a bear in distress. 

Sounds very similar to this:

All the cougar sounds I've heard sound higher and more raspy to me.  :dunno:

I'm thinking it really could be the Bear Cub distress call from FOXPRO as mentioned above. Here's a sound sample from their site. Given it is Bear hunting season in that area, it was likely a hunter using this call. Although the sound varied in pitch, tone, and depth...
Based on their sound sample I'm not sure if it varies the sound or if it just does the same sound repeatedly. In either case, it was likely a real bear cub in distress, or a bear call of one.
Thanks everyone!!! I think this mystery might be solved!

Pretty hazy to tell for sure. Cub distress or doe distress would be my guess.
If someone was calling bears/lions at night, hunting big game at night is not permitted so IDK.
Might been a cat or some critter killing a cub or deer if it was indeed at night.
He is a real life doe distress/bawl.

Could be setting the stand up. Explains the 4 sets every 30 seconds. Trying to get away from foxpro but can't use range finder to stay within the 200 yard remote control range. Also explains why it went silent for 30 minutes prior to them leaving. Waiting for daylight to turn it on and let run.  :dunno:

Or momma found it and they moved on.
