It defintely works! Elk hunting in the September turned into bear hunting when we spotted one crossing a meadow about 150 yards from us. Crossed the creek and squealed on the elk diaphragm for about a minute and I looked over my shoulder and there was a different bear stalking in directly behind us probably 40 yards away! Talk about adrenaline. No clue where that bear came from cause we had literally walked through there 5 minutes before that. He or she spun around and ran off. Rattled and excited at the same time. I thought my buddy was just reliving the moment saying “here comes the bear” only to realize he was telling me the original bear was running in what from the other direction. He stopped broadside, my buddy gave me the range, and he got schwacked! Pretty crazy how quick they came in. And definitely a crazy adrenaline rush regardless, but especially calling in two bears with only bows! Not the greatest picture but he was a medium sized boar. Not a lot of time to judge when they’re running towards ya.
