How to Call in a Black Bear

OI PODCAST: How to Call in a Black Bear with Clay Owens

Clay Owens and Cory Glauner talk quickly about predator calling for black bears. This podcast is only a few minutes long, but if you’ve ever wondered how to call in a black bear, here’s your answer.

Bears will come into a predator call!

It’s really pretty simple…much like calling coyotes and other predators.

  • When you’re calling black bears, use a jackrabbit/bear cub distress sound…being as “sorrowful” as possible.
  • Call loudly and don’t let up for 20 up to 40 minutes.
  • Seeing bears before you begin to call always ups your odds of success.

Our hunt was excellent.

We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.

What an amazing experience!

The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
