A bear makes a deer or moose sound loud compared to them, especially coming in to bait. They're dark color and pretty much soundless, they are just suddenly there. I forgot bobcats, they are one of the few sounds that make the hair on the back of your neck stand right up. Hunted up here all my life and walked the woods in the dark, in and out from stands without any real fear, coyote pack run up on you in the dark going into stand will give you a real rush. Walking up on a bull moose during rut is what made me start carrying a gun up in the north woods ( a chainsaw and the LORD kept me from getting rearranged that time). But a bear good and close that you don't even know is there gets my vote as the biggest thrill of all. Glad there's no grizzlies up here!The close up sow ate my first game cam pretty good for taking a close-up.I seldom heard them coming in, they can be very quiet. I just bought a pair of 454 Casull Raging Bulls I'd like to try but my hunting days are over. Make up 4 hooks out of wood round handrail with the flat on the bottom & a 60p common or sinker bent nail so you can hook them thru the wrist front & back to carry them out & get them cool asap as bear meat doesn't last like deer. Wish I could go. Hope you get a bobcat close screaming. Enjoy!
