Hey Guys! 

I posted three new videos, and a new story (O-19) to my Call-in story page...

http://rain-shadow.com/cougar_callin_stories.htm


I've been starting to learn to video edit, hopefully this year I'll get proficient enough to have my tutorial be in DVD format instead of audio, but these are a start! There's 4 videos there amongst the stories now.


If anyone else has any call-in stories, PLEASE let me know! Thanks!

I have heard that there are people who call in black bears.
Truth or just a myth?

There's a video called "Callin' Bears" put together by Wayne Carlton. It's really pretty good!

I have a friend who calls bears while lying on his back and waits to hear them rushing him... It's worked for him many times, but then again, he's crazy!

Yes. They call bears.

Hogs can be called, the e-call makers are getting into that.

I've heard turkey calling stories, more elk calling stories than any other though.

I gotta write up that cougar call-in that I think I told you, when the cat sneaked up close unseen and then growled at me when I picked up the motion decoy. My call in stories have more examples of mistakes not to make than of dead cougars! Am heading for the east coast and post this mostly as a reminder for when I get back.

That call -in story section of yours is way valuable, a real service to anyone who wants to call cougars. I go back and read the stories again every once in awhile, still picking up bits to make my calling better.

Oregon Cougar numbers are rocketing off the charts. I have out of the area family that wants to hunt with me, if we do plan a trip I'm going to go hunt the east slope NF in Southern Oregon. It's just the best opportunity for Cats in the West right now.

Saw a video of a guy bowhunting cats with a couple of hounds.
Hounds treed the cat and the hunter was able to make a good vitals shot.
After a minute or so the cat bought it and kerplunk down into a couple of feet of snow. Lotta adrenalin ! Cats don't seem to wanna tangle with dogs, even if they outsize them.
This will go into my bucket list of "prolly never gonna happen" !
Really enjoy the well told stories here !!!
Keep 'em comin'

If you love to work dogs, then hound hunting fits. It's pretty much a slam dunk if you've got good dogs and have some athleticism.

I'm focusing on the calling.

I prefer TOA powered calls like the FoxPro CS24. I have the Krakatoa version of the CS24. I haven't tried the new FoxPro call, shockwave or whatever. For the money I was impressed with the FoxPro Hellfire, I recommend it, and I'd buy it if I needed one right now.

There's really not much competition for FP these days.

I have called in over 20 lions. I have killed 8 of them myself and others another 5 or 6. Quite a few have sneaked off to live another day. There is a guy here in town that averaged 20+ lions a year. He used lion sounds to call them in.

I have also called in more than 20 bears. I find that bears are easier to call than lions. I take my dog with my now as she can hear/smell them coming way before me!

I have called most of mine with hand calls but prefer a foxpro now as I have had a couple of cats sneak up behind me.

I called one cat in AZ, first day of 3 days hunting. Had a vocal response, but it kept its distance and I could never pick it out (next ridge over, 300+yds). I think it saw the truck down in the flat. Cougar paradise down there!

Do you have any stories written up that you'd let me use, dennisinaz?
