Most bizzare thing you've called with a predator call ?

I've called in a few things with a predator call, Coyote, Fox, Bobcat, Javalina, Feral Hog, House Dog, Crows/Ravens ,other assorted birds and Mule Deer. The most surprising was a Black Bear shot him at 25 yards when I first saw him. But the wierdest thing was a Porcupine, To this day I can't be sure he was coming to my call but that little sucker was sure headed my way in big porcupine hurry.

Once called my pet dog, a young black lab, with a turkey call.

Did I mention I was about 25 mles from home?!!

A small herd of antelope once came to a dying rabbit squealer. They were so interested they had their necks craned out like giraffes.

A couple of cattle ranchers that were curious as to what all the squealing was. I didn't shoot them though.

My friend and I were once chased out of the back of the truck we were sitting in by an owl which came to the sound of a squealing rabbit tape. It hovered within a few feet of our heads.
