I called one in last Fall in WI, it came running. We didn't get a shot at it though.

"I've heard of a book that discusses all this....it was Ultimate something..."

I've read that book about 10 times.  Usually after I go out looking for Smokey in the I-90 corridor and totally strike out. That book is chocked full of good info (and stories)...  If I could ever figure out who wrote that, I'd sure thank them for publishing it. 

PS -- I wonder if humor comes through online.  :)

Good info, thanks! I brought my electronic call tonight in the water shed, in a place the inspectors told me is a good bear area.  I used a cub in destress call pretty much non stop. So my questions,  itís late in the year, the bears are almost dening up. What is the best call to use now? I thought a cub call would be money since they are looking for some last good calories.  Also, how long should I stay in each area calling before I move on to another place, and how far away should I drive to start calling again?

How late are the bears typically out. Worth it to bring a call during last weekend of modern elk?

It's worth a shot. I almost always have a bear or two on camera into December. I have bears on camera right now so....

I donít believe there is a time thatís too late to call in a bear. As I believe our bears this far south donít really hibernate.

I saw three different bears (all within 250 yards of me) while I was out walking in the woods with my gun looking for the unicorn elk in 460 during modern firearm season. Also saw a fair amount of really new scat that was mostly still berries.  Not sure what type of berries, because I didn't see any ripe berries in my human travels, but the bears were still apparently finding plenty all the way until last week.  Couldn't shoot any of them because I'd already filled my tags.  Oh well...let's them get bigger for next year, although one of them was a full-on bruiser that's probably going to eat the last 5 deer in 460 this winter.
