How/Why-wildlife calls-Hawk

I was stalking some elk when I found this Red Tail Hawk. I had good cover available and when I got to the top of a ridge I should have a opportunity for a close up. The wind would be in my face so camera noise should not be a problem.

He had no idea I was there I took a couple of bursts of around 5 each.



I used my crow call. Very soft and only 1 call. I wanted to get his attention but not scare him.



Maybe more attention would be better. A soft Elk Calf Call and he raised his head a little.



As you can see same hawk same time and 3 very different looks to choose from for a keeper. I decided to keep #2 & #3. I think #3 is the best because of his proud look. This is why I use wildlife calls.

TOTALLY WACKY roger

Very nice. One does not often get that close to any kind of hawk without seeing them from the rear as they fly off.

Number 3 I think is the best. His head is standing taller giving him that proud appearance.

Didnt read everything until after I wrote the above and see I had the same thoughts as you did:lol:.
