Calling is an effective technique for most animals. There are a variety of sounds that can be imitated to draw game to you.
- Territorial sounds: Moose “grunt”
- Feeding sounds: A duck’s feeding “chuckle”
- Distress sounds: Inviting a coyote, a lynx, or a fox to feed
There are hundreds of sounds that can attract all types of wildlife. A skillful hunter uses these sounds to attract animals close enough to him or her for an effective shot. Make sure to check state regulations regarding types of calls that are legal (e.g., mechanical/electronic calls may be legal for predators but may not be allowed for waterfowl).
