No just sleep with your gun, that’s always my theory on concurrent bear tags during the rifle seasons. If a bear wants to get my food it’s gonna have to fight me for it. And it would make a hell of a story! Hopefully a set of claw marks across the chest!
I called my bear in with an elk diaphragm first doing low- long coyote howl then after a couple minutes switched to a pup distress.. bear came down the tree toward us real quick. Don’t call unless you’re setup. even after 100 failed attempts… multiple times I’ve had elk keep grazing after a coyote call when I thought they’d bump. The deer bump on coyotes but are intrigued by distress most times for me..Yes. Hell, grab two, most of the leftovers are B tags. Chat it up with the elk hunters and, like others said, they might turn you on to a carcass. Too many Yogis in our woods but they're still darn hard to hunt spot and stalk. Word to the wise...predator calls do work, but they'll spook the deer and elk, and irritate those hunters, around you. I've had bears come in to nice, calm, high-pitched cow mews before, those are probably safe.
