    I have a called in Reedbuck, Zebra, jackal, Lion, Duiker, Steenbuck with mouth calls. Thinking about it, just about any territorial animal should respond to challenging calls!
    When animals have been spooked during a stalk, I often use a long high pitched whistle to get them to stop and look back. Most often fatally! I have used this for Zebra, Kudu, 'woundebeest', Impala, Eland, Buffalo, Sable!

    Ole Bally I use the same but due to the lack of my whistling skills I use a Green stone dog whistle they also use this in Chamois and Tarr in NZ, it is fatal as you correctly mention.

    Have a good one!

    Very interesting Ernie and Jaco, we must get together for some lessons. I can't whistle and even my wife ignores me when I call, so I've got no chance with animals. I just creep up and shoot them..!
