I made a single barred owl hoot with my voice and not one but two gobblers responded from their roosts. These gobbles allowed me to know without doubt exactly where these toms were for our round the next morning.
I'll never forget the anticipation I felt while packing to fly on my first out-of-state bowhunting trip. I thought I was going to wear out You Tube looking for videos on the best way to safely, and legally, fly bowhunting equipment without setting off any alarms or being added to a watch list. I was thankful when I found out the truth of how these items are handled. As long as I remembered some basic principles, I had very little to worry about.
I give dozens of game calling seminars and demonstrations each year. Every single time I pick up a call, I explain to the folks watching and listening that the device in my hand, although it is described as a game call, is really no more than a musical instrument.
