I just heard a strange call this past weekend. Having sat on my porch listening to woodland sounds over the past 20 years it was something I hadn't heard before. Initially I thought coyote but as it got closer I was thinking maybe bear or Moose. It was persistent and kept it up from 5 pm to around 7. It was repeated the next evening too.

I just checked out a site of Moose vocalizations and what I first took as coyote-like was the bugling of a Moose. The nearer close up grunting sounds were also that of a Moose. I had basically come to that conclusion anyway since it was mating season and the calling was so persistent that it seemed the animal was searching for something like a mate. Since early bear season had just opened I didn't think a bear would be dumb enough to walk a mile announcing it's presence.

We have both a Bull and Cow in the area so it was definitely was a Moose looking for love in all the wrong places.

Black bears are pretty much non vocal except in the spring mating season when sows in heat will make a bawl almost like a dairy cow.
I've heard them near Pharaoh Lake while camping in June.

Black bears make a variety of sounds for different reasons although most movies depicting black bears import bear sounds from other types when showing bear aggression. http://bearsmartdurango.org/bear-sounds/

well. They aren't exactly thinking straight. Did you hear the male rattling brush or the female peeing. ? The call by itself is neat
