Start by mimicking something small and suffering, such as a distressed fawn, calf, varmint, or rodent. Just be prepared for anything. Distress calls can attract bears, wolves, coyotes, foxes, bobcats, and lions. There's nothing quite like watching a coyote or wolf materialize in the timber or suddenly appear in the wide open, trotting right to you. I've also had bears come to my cow elk calls, and lions slip in on my coyote cries. You never know what might show up, and that's half the fun. —B.R.
