Calling works great in the spring and sometimes it works extremely great. Find a location known to hold bears, get into your spot when the bears start moving from their dens and make sure you call from a position that a bear cannot sneak up behind you. An interested bear can sometimes be hard to chase off if it's not one that you want.
Be very careful and aware of your surroundings. Calling can cause bears to get very aggressive. I would suggest an electronic call. If you use a mouth call be prepared to blow continuously to keep your bears interested. Bears have a very low attention span when being called and they have a tendency to lose interest if the sound stops.
