Default Calling Bears - The Coyotes Came Running

Used my new FoxPro Firestorm on Saturday to call black bears. No bears but the coyotes sure did respond! In one calling session we called in four big dogs to within 15 yards of my location with the caller placed 40 yards in front of us. I was sure fun to get those dogs that close without them even knowing we were there. The Firestorm was easy to use and really made the day fun. Hopefully a bear will soon find the calls as interesting as the coyotes did!

I have had good luck with deer and calf elk sounds and lightning jack.

for bears, I have had better luck just letting it run. no on and off routine. keep the sound going and keep their interest up !

We used the Snowshoe1, 2 and 3 sounds. Our setups were 45min to an hour in length. Calling as loud as the FoxPro would allow. All the coyotes for the day came to the call in less than three minutes. The first came in at 1 minute 43 seconds. We were deffinetly in bear country as several had been sighted the week prior to the season opening. It was sure fun and we will give it a try next week.

Hello everyone,
I have called several bears in with the blacktail fawn distress on my FX3. Because we have alot of thick timber and brushy clear cuts my set ups run about 40 to 60 min. This call has done very well with bobcats.

Good luck
