So am I hearing this right, bears can be brought in with predator calls? If so, what range would the bear have to be in in order to hear the call?

Yes they can, I have had them come in to a piglet in distress on a e caller while predator hunting.

I've only called them in a couple times by accident so I can't suggest specific calls, I'm sure there is a lot of info on the net.
If you decide on south Cherokee on the southern side of the Hiawassee river, I know it like the back of my hand, every trail, campsites, whatever you need to know.

And btw, the wma does go straight into the dog hunts. The archery only is for private land. Doesn't mean you can't hunt it.

I can help you out with the Tellico ranger district, north of where catch dawg is talking about. They have a lot of open hunts there.

As far as how far they can hear? That would depend on the terrain and vegetation. In some areas sound will not travel far at all, but there are some other areas where it would not surprise me if they could hear you from a mile away. They have a pretty good sense of hearing, but it is their nose that is really outstanding.

I am willing to bet a fawn distress would work pretty good early on in the season. The hunts on south Cherokee start in September.

Looks like it started the weekend prior to the opening of the state archery season.

According to the state harvest record from last year, the best counties are Cocke and Sevier. It also stated that the archery only was for all counties listed for the dog hunts too.
That would be considered North Cherekee NF, Correct??

I would also think that if your trying to call the in you would probably want to be in a tree stand and not hunting on the ground???
