Called a couple in in AZ with the Wayne Carlton Bear call. Don't know if they still make 'em? It is a squaller, a loud fawn bleat. It came with a video that was helpful. I never had any luck blind calling but, if you can spot them, they will usually (or sometimes) come over to check it out. They come hungry and planning on a free meal so, it's a good idea to have a buddy calling and you can watch each others backs.

Which states allow scents but not baits? I never heard of such a thing.
Thanks for your time!

I am looking at calling in bears this fall in Montana. Sounds like a good alternative since I can't seem to draw an elk tag.

I seem to recall an older Video it was called Calling in Bears by Wayne Carlton. He uses various calling techniques in his video. Hope this helps. I myself have hunted bear but strictly over bait, it is legal here in Ontario. And burning honey or molasses would be considered baiting.

I have called in 14 bears so far. I like a raspy sounding call better than a higher pitch call. I like to cold call, since it's pretty thick up here in NE WA. I call pretty much non-stop for an hour and I set a watch out in front of me, because calling for an hour is a looong time and without the watch it is hard to judge how long I have been on stand.

The thought of calling in a bear is pretty exciting and a little spooky!

I might suggest an electronic caller if they are legal in your state. Especially if you are hunting alone. Put the speaker 15-20 yards in front of you with an old rabbit fur to draw their attention. Then run the call for at least a half hour.

check the rags on the use of scents.. I've called in three bears with a simple squeeling rabbit call. All three came running. (one to with in 5 yards!) Have fun.

I read a "bear warning" poster in Montana that advised people to wear little jingling bells to alert bears to your presence and to carry a can of pepper spray. It then also said, and I quote: "It is important to learn to identify black bear feces and grizzly bear feces. Black bear feces will contain berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear sh*t contains lots of little jingling bells and smells like pepper spray."

Think I will add calling to my bear hunting trips this year sounds as if it works pretty well.
