    Re: Predator calling for bears

    To quote the synopsis: "It is illegal: 34. To use recorded or electronic calls
    to hunt wildlife except Wolf, Coyote,
    Cougar, Lynx or bobcat or any bird listed
    in Schedule C
    (see “What is Wildlife?”
    Section)."
    "The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living."

    Amazing what a fella can learn just by reading the regulations. What a novel idea.

    Well I am fairly certain you can use electronic predator call in BC. Its unlawful to use them for anything other than Wolf, Coyote, Cougar, Lynx, Bobcat or any bird listed in Schedule C. So to say that electronic calls are banned is not true. Took that word for word from page 15 of the regulations.
    You can take the man out of the wilderness but you cant take the wilderness out of the man.

    I don't think anyone is questioning the legal issues of the electric caller or even disputing the fact or questioning the regulations.

    No I’m using a old fashioned hand rabbit distress call. Looks like a doe bleat tube.

    Looks exciting. Maybe not “chewin’ on your arm exciting” but who wants that again, right? Any idea how Grizz respond to the sounds of a bunny panic attack?
    Pretend hunter.

    I would say the exact same way as a black bear...they would come right in looking for a meal.

    When I did it he came in full tilt. The image of that thing leaping over the snowbank at 10 metres is forever burned into my memory.

    Exciting? Yes. Recommended? No.

    They are an apex predator coming to what sounds like an easy meal.

    Inspired me to go out and get a predator call for this fall.

    I’ve just been wandering around looking for them. This sounds way better.

    Your right, my reference was to bears, should have been more clear!
    Take a kid hunting its more rewarding than shooting an animal yourself!!
