Default Anyone used a game call for black bears in the fall?

Curious as to whether anyone has had success using a game call for black bears in the fall?
I understand they work best in the spring when using cub in distress for calling them in but haven't heard much about using them in the fall.
Had the trail cam out and this bruiser has appeared several times and sure like the size and the color.
The enviro Nazis have made baiting illegal

I've never tried it myself, but I know of a couple of guys that have done it. I've also seen videos of called bears. One fella I know does it on a fairly regular basis.

Modern call makes a cub bawler that sounds really good. Electronic callers can't be used in KY. We had three coyotes respond to it last fall during bear season here but no bears. I was told by a bear guide that they are the go to call when electronics can't be used.

Thanks for the input everyone Going to see it the Bear Cub 1 sound works but still putting in a lot of shoe wear trying to pattern and locate the above bruin it will be a perfect mate to the Large Black phase I have already have.
It is good to be back XNAVYORDIE the trip last summer kind of got waylaid due to 2 deaths in the family and being pulled off the horses due to surgery, developed a hernia the size of a golf ball that had top be pushed back in everytime I lifted a saddle or pack, Did make it all the way across ID and to Malta MT, (approximately 900 Miles of the 2200 mile journey)
