Also, for me calls seem to wear off after about 4 minutes.
Yes, if you mean real time minutes, (4 real time minutes = 8 in-game minutes) this is about the time a turkey box call stays effective. As I said, this is species-specific. A deer calls last ca. 6 minutes (12 in-game minutes). The elk call lasts even a little longer, but I did not measure this one precisely so far.
wiki says: deer - long, turkey - averrage, elk - short. So, elk shorter than turkey (4-6min) or longer than deer (14-15min)?
Never measured any times but Elk will only follow a call for 2-3 minutes, then turn around. A deer is lured much longer before using interest.
