Youll have to look back through the threads. There are a ton of posts on calling for bears. I have only been successful once so far. I was calling elk for a friend of mine and a bear came running in on us. Came within 30 yards or so. Really small. I was just cow calling.

bears can take a long time to respond i will sit for at least a half hour. bears are ussually very cautious. i have called in several while calling coyotes with a fawn bleat call.

I tried to talk you out of the good one but when you said I could have it I felt bad so bought another one. Wish I could make calls sound like you can. Have you heard how Rick did.

Yes, there are a few of us. As stated above, take a look through the bear forum as there are dozens of threads on calling bears. Good luck.

I've called in one large bruin with a fawn bleat but he was just curious and very very cautious; I've never heard of one coming in fast hoping for meat but they will come in if you're patient...oh ya and rainshadow makes the best custom calls I've ever seen.

Keep calling and you will see a whole range of behaviors, including caution, rushing in, popping teeth and swatting brush.

I've had them charge in. Pert near make you crap your pants.  As more and more people call though I have found that happens less and less.

I had a sow and a cub come running into my elk cow calling and stopped 5 ft from me, I nearly *censored* myself. Pretty scary to say the least.  :chuckle:
