Default Opinion on hog calls

Primos has 2 types of hog calls, a squealer and a grunter. Are these effective? I've called out 3 piglets before by squealing but I've never seen anything bigger walk up.

The one I have is the Knight&Hale with instructional hogsounds tape. If you don't know the sound you're making, you might be giving them the Alert sound and you will never see one. Hogs are very vocal among themselves. Every sound they make has a meaning!

I've seen video of the squealer call being used and it was effective at calling in sows. The caller was imitating the distress sounds of a pig and the sows were just charging right in to the call with destruction on their agenda!
I've also seen video of the grunt call being used. The key to using the grunt call was to keep at it for up to an hour. The pigs that responded didn't come raging in, they were more like feeding in to the sounds.

Even though I sell both, I find the Grunter to be more effective. I use it to cover my noise walking in and to mimic feeding sounds after the feeder goes off. I've seen the squeler work to bring the pigs back after a bow shot. You can convince a sow to come back with it.

I just got a grunter. But soon realized that I don't know what sounds to make. Anyone know of where I can hear the sounds? Any websites with good sound bites?

I want to get this back to the top because I am interested also in a place to hear the different sounds. I have a grunter and a squeeler and tried to use the squeeler once to bring one in that I could see in some thick brush but it ran as soon as I hit the call. Obviously I told it there is a hunter over there and to run
