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: Deer "rattling," elk "bugle," or a turkey "yelp"
- Feeding sounds: A duck’s feeding "chuckle"
- Distress sounds: Inviting coyotes, bobcats, or foxes 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.
