I coulda swore I posted "I call predators"?

I also posted I make calls, and some pictures, did my post get deleted because of that?

Krusty, I don't think anyone deleted any of your photos or posts. When that happens we have a "recycle bin" and there hasn't been anything in there from you.

If I was going to delete someone's post I would tell them when and why, or would usually do so when they ask me to. If you plan on selling calls on our board you should read our policies under the Classifieds board

I spend some time calling in the winter months...Ive never had anything come in that I know of other than coyotes.  Have been doing some spot lighting this last winter too.  There is alot of ground to drive and spot light out here.

Bearbait, you should check out the MILES upon MILES of BLM land west of Davenport off Hwy 2.  If you ever want to go sometime let me know, be more then happy to show you around out there.

Add another die hard predator caller to this list.  My primary cals are a Slydog Howler, Syco Tweety, and an Arky Screaming Demon.  I'll also go to an old Faulks Jackrabbit, Primos Ki-Yi, and I like Wayne Carlton's old green bear call too.

I also have a couple of Arky's early calls. The only custom calls I have are Bearmanric, Arky, and my own. I do have a couple production/mass produced calls but I don't use them much anymore.

Krusty,

What you could try, is to save some calling sounds to your computer, and if you can't practice at home copy them to a format you can use in your truck.
Record them like a foreign language tape, let the sound play a series, then mimic it.

Using a predator call, or most any game call, is like using a musical instrument.
It's just gonna take time to learn, and nobody can "give you" that talent.

More than anything though, I believe, the sound you make isn't really that important.
If you sound like something dying, or something mad, or just plain something interesting, there's a chance animals are going to come to check it out.
Hopefully it'll be the animal you're trying to call.

What calls are you using, and what are you having trouble with?

I agree 100%.
I have been chastized on a few sites for stating this, usually by callmakers.

I have called in bears, and yotes with my javelina call...last time I checked there weren't many of those running around here :)  I like it becuase it is a bit coarser call and the bears seem to respond a little better, at least for me.

Fred,

The question begs, though, were you making javelina distress sounds?

There are only about a dozen "enclosed reeds" from which most predator and hog calls are made from.
Many of the same sounds, can be made, and will be just as effective, no matter what the call was originally marketed for.

I have a Quaker Boy wood duck call, and a Carlton's Lonesome Cow elk call, that are among my very favorite predator calls.
While they will make good duck and elk sounds respectively, they both also make many good predator calling sounds.

A very famous call maker and caller says "Sit with your back against some cover, and blow a call, any call, and if predators are around to hear it, chances are they'll come to see what all the ruckass is about."

The best teachers there are, are out in the woods, running and flying around.
You'll know when jays and crows, hawks, and deer, start showing up, you're doing it right.

If you really want to find success, you just have to keep trying.

Just to play devil's advocate a little bit... The more sounds you are capable of reproducing will help you in several situations.  These include:
1) Coyotes that have been "educated" to distress sounds by a missed shot, a shot that took out one of multiple coyotes, or heavily called coyotes on public land.
2) A coyote that you have visually spotted that shows disinterest to your initial calling.
3) Relocating and recalling to a coyote that has come in and "busted you" usually by sight.  Recalling a coyote that has winded you is rare.

The ability to reproduce a wide variety of sounds will hopefully enable you to find the sound that will make them curious enough to come have a look. 

With bear, I don't think the sound is as important.  It is rare that they ever hear a call.  I can't speak to cougars, since I have never knowingly called one in.
