Learn How To Call A Bear

One of the most important things you should know regarding this matter is that the key to bear calling is to call (without any interruptions) until the bear is within your fire range. If you stop calling, the bear will stop advancing. Some experienced hunters affirm that sows are more attracted by the calling. It is advisable to shot bears only after you call them.

A common mistake that many hunters do is imitating the sounds of a sow in heat. Most people think that by doing they will attract the bear - totally wrong because bears aren’t very vocal animals. It is known that these animals can mate without making any sounds at all. As far as communication is concerned, only sows and cubs communicate on a regular basis.
Despite all this, there are certain sounds that will attract bears: one of the most effective sounds would be the ones made by two bears fighting for food. They can also be called using blowing or chomping – these two sounds are the expression of fear: lip smacking, teeth clicking or a big release of air.

One of the best bear calling tips is that human-like calls can be very efficient, some good examples would be: moaning, motor-like purring, mother’s cry, cub distress call and infringement call.

a. Moaning - fearful call. For example a bear that has been chased up or a sow that has been pursued by a boar will moan in order to “explain” that she isn’t ready yet for breeding.

b. Motor-like purring - usually cubs make these sounds when they are nursing or if they feel very comfortable.

c. Mother’s cry - females can make this sound when they are trying to locate their cubs.
d. Cub distress call - very attractive to sows, it sounds just like a human baby’s cry.

e. Infringement call - this sound is made by a very angry and aggressive bear when he is trying to pursue other bears to go away from his territory.

Biologists affirm that using cub distress calls isn’t recommended (or any other predator that sounds just about the same).

Mothers are drawn by any type of sounds which are familiar with a cub’s sound. They are so sensitive to this and that even the sounds of a red tailed hawk will make females react immediately. Females also confuse rabbit-in-distress calls with the sounds of a cub in trouble - in this case the female will send her cubs investigating the area.

Calling can be very effective during the autumn, but only if there are bears in the area of course. You will find a bear where there is a lot of food, so check these places first. In autumn time, good areas would be where breech corps can be found. After finding a place like this, use an infringement call (broken moan).

Using the regular rabbit-in-predator calls can be efficient on bears but unlike calling other types of animals, calling bears requires strong lungs. In comparison with the fox calling for example (where a hunter calls for about 10-15, intermittently), for bear calling the same thing should be done for 20 up to 30 minutes.
