F&W says I don't have any bears around me.  :roll:  In spite of that, I haven't had a chance to try it.  I've heard of people doing it quite a bit though.  Read several articles about it as well.

Might as well give it a shot.  O0  If I remember right, fawn bawls & dying rabbits were what worked.  :wink:

I'm not sure if it's legal here or not.

Guess I'll check and find out. I know they have increased the season in certain areas of the mountains to the north and swamps to the south so maybe it would be worth a shot.

I never even heard of calling them back when I hunted them. From what I have read since, it works pretty good.

I would want LOTS of big firepower, for sure!  I also think a fella calling them from the ground and in any heavy cover had better have a fellow gunner along to watch his backside. If the bear sneaks in, you won't hear him coming. And if he rushes in,...........................................!!!!!!  :shock:
I can tell you first had what it is like to have one sneak in on you and what it's like to be charged by one. Fortunately, I was packing a good bear stopper when the old boar decided he wanted another scrap that day. I left my bow in the vehicle that day, fortunately.

It seems bear respond really quick to a fawn bleat.
