Which calls are you having most success with bringing in the bears?

Fawn in distress works best for me, but sometimes the calling gets so crazy that the only way I can describe it is all out chaos.

I have two calls I love to use, the circe 3 in 1, love the long and med range calls and I have had a lot of success with a javelina call.  It is loud and coarse which I have found for me to work better then the higher pitched calls.

In the country down here elk calf or high pitched cow calling works pretty darn good.  just remember they are coming in for red meat.

Up north, deer or fawn calls work well.  If theyare in hearing distance and there isn't a feed bucket in fornt of them, they will come into any meat call.

Aint that the truth.
I have also had very good luck with a cow/calf calls as well as distress. I have had bears within 20 yards walk up a grade slobbering. Boy do they look confused when they see a human, but hear an elk.

Dont forget to breath.Thought this was funny. Wayne carlton talking about using his mouth calls on the ground.You know you are blowing too hard when your calling in a bear and the next thing you know you wake up missing a leg.
