How to Make a Moose Call

How to Make a Moose Call

Even if you never call in a 60-inch bull, you’ll be able to impress your hunting buddies with your backwoods acumen when you pull out your handmade moose call.

I made one of these a few years back when the instuctions were in the magazine. It was alot of fun.
I didn't take it on my moose hunt as I was pretty sure the guide had his own. I wish I would have as that would have been way cool to harvest my moose using a call that I made. JB

make sure when punching the hole for the string to place the hole in the center of the can bottom.

another very simple moose call is to take a 1 liter apple juice can and remove one end with a can opener. using a small nail and hammer make a small hole in the bottom of the can, insert a cotton shoe lace through hole and knot both end. the lace should be quite snug in the hole. with the string hanging out of the open can top, dampen the lace with water. hold the can by the bottom edge, with the open top facing away from yourself and pull the string out from the bottom end of the can slowly. it produces a lonesome cow bawl

an even easier call to build for moose is to take a 40 oz PLASTIC liquor bottle and insert a 1.5 foot piece of dowel 4-5 inches through the neck of the bottle. secure the handle with duct tape. using a knife remove the bottom of the bottle.
hold by wooden handle and rake it across brush and saplings's, it produces the sound a bull makes when scraping its antlers. very effective when used with the birch bark call. it makes the effect of a cow in heat with bull nearby. really fires up mature bulls.
