Just go hunt there for a while and the call will come. But don't look for them hunt other things.
I know it sounds stupid but it worked for me.
Nothing sounds stupid when nothing has worked so far. I do recall hearing the calls when doing my Reindeer hunting and could care less about the ptarmies so I totally believe you. Thanks RB, I'll give it another shot, you gave me a lil hope
It's a pain in the ass to get the calls- I remember doing the rock ptarm one - I laid on the rocks in VDB forever, I think it was one of the holiday things you had to do (if memory serves me right) - no way I'd ever do the regular ones unless it was all I had left
- So I started shooting them with the 30-06 (works great btw) and I finally hear some weird call and that was it! I bet it took me an hour- The ones on Hemm were simple enough. I found a spot they had been pooping and walking around and layed down and within 15 min I think they started fluttering around and finally landed all around me, they were practically walking on top of me and I got those calls- In those hills around the stone thing.
I'll second Stan, the birds really messed up ibex and Hemm hunting for me- One of my best bear bait spots is now filled with birds 9 out of 10 spawns so I took it down. The ones on TGT are no problem, I don't hunt those areas anyway and besides, if it weren't for ridgeback I wouldn't even know where they are-
