      I was hunting a little ways off the road one time. A car came by and honked at a deer that was taking its time to cross. This car honking generated a gobble.

        I have gotten responses from a car door slams, .22 bullet hitting a pop can, tree falling, and me sliding down a hill taking every leaf down with me.

          Coyote howlers, pileated woodpecker calls and hawk calls are all legitimate shock gobble elicitors. Yelping loudly on a tube call works well, too. I've heard them gobble at factory whistles, police sirens, bellowing cows, braying jackasses and tugboat whistles, but not on such a reliable basis that I'd want to try to carry any of them with me.

            If they are going to gobble it never fails anywhere it is tried.

              So far, I've built a "bee vacuum" and a "swarm trap".
              When I deploy the trap this spring, I'll need at least one hive....I hope!...
