You goin' to try to call sheep and goats to you? Sounds like fun.
You should be able to mimic them with your voice reasonably well. I guess the trick will be to find the pitch that works.
You're probably familiar with the way the rifle hunters do it? Wound a goat and let it bleat until other goats show up... not exactly humane, but "this ain't Hollywood."
My buddy was stalking a mouflon on Lanai a few years ago and shot over its back. I "baaed" at the 3/4 curl ram and it froze staring at me. I held its attention while my buddy slung three more arrows at it before finally hitting it. Steep downhill angle made it a tough shot--not to mention the mounting tension!
Congratulations! Were you packing a camera? It'd be nice to see a picture.
How'd the hunt develop? Did you stalk relatively close and mouth-call it or what?
I had a pig hunt planned for the weekend, but my buddy got smacked at an intersection day before yesterday by a drunk driver in Honolulu. His car got totaled, but Jason's all right. If he can borrow the family car, we'll still chase pigs. I hope I remember the camera.
Well it was a toss up between archery or rifle. It was rifle. Walked about 3.5 miles and decided to rest on the new lava flow. Well after resting for about 3 minutes, we saw a couple of ewe's walking on the top and then I decided to use my quaker boy hammer head deer call. It does sound like a sheep/goat if used correctly. Well after calling 2 times we hear A cry in front of us and start to get ready. Then the unexpected happend, Out in the open lava here comes a ram. Except it was walking right towards us and then stopped 20 yards away. Damm! should have brought the bow. Boom! the sheep drops. And this is what it looked like.
