    Has anyone had any success calling hogs with electronic or mouth blown calls?

    Not hogs but I did call in a big hawk or owl one night. I had the speakers mounted on the wheeler and was jamming to, "piglet in distress". A dark shadow went swooping by a couple times and I figured I better shut it down before I got a face full of claws. Another night, I'm pretty sure my snoring called in a little boar.

    It may be more likely an owl, but I have had a hawk come in at night.

    Hog calling, when it works, it can work dramatically well. On the downside, I have seen it chase away hogs (using sow hysteria) on 2 occasions when we were trying to pull hogs onto the property where we were hunting. Most of the time, I find it to be a failure.

    I have seen it work twice and twice the pork never paid any attention. It does work when it works though and a bud has seen it work a bunch of times. We have had them come within 5 to 10 yrds of us. I was laughing so much I couldn't shoot straight. Another friend has the ones that come with FoxPro stuff (I think) and he has even had luck with that too. Fun times fo sure!! BANG BANG!!

    I have called a big boar with a grunt call. I also own a Convergent caller. Convergent Hunting Solutions

    If you want to learn about hog calling,,,watch all of the Glenn Guess videos. He is one of the best!

    The video is long,,but worth it.

    The hysteria call is a part of Guess’ calls. I also have a grunt tube but do not get a chance to use it to often. Here Piggy Piggy!!:)

    Yes it works but it depends on the sound you use and the sounder. I watched all of Glen's videos to try and figure out how to stop scaring some of the groups off. The below video was taken four minutes after shooting the lead sow out of this group, they all came back. We have also had good luck on big boars with piglet distress calls.

    My experience is nothing scares off a hog better than noise. Even whispering to a buddy, " there's a hog out there" and the hog will exit.
    I bumped something in the blind one time and the hog left. Quiet is key. Switching off the rifle safety doesn't seem to bother a hog like it does a deer. Nothing calls a hog better than a pail of corn or cracked corn. I have seen sow urine work but not always.

    I kill most of my hogs while hunting alone, not sure why.

    Hearing the thumps of rounds hitting their buddies scares them off pretty bad
