if you bugle, squeal like a young bull and do cow calls - try and sound like a young horny bull with 2-3 cows and a bigger bull might come in

see, the big bulls let the smaller ones gather all the cows, they don't do it themselves, and then come in and beat ass and take 10-15 cows at a time. big bulls know how to play the game !

I would suggest some soft, very cow calling. I would try to calves and cows moving thru and feeding.

I have had a good amount of success of calling back and forth, sounding like a herd feeding. Usually keep it up for a period of minutes and then making them less frequent in between my responses. I will be trying it again this year for sure

Good Luck
