I have had an ecall for decades, there are places they work well.
Decades ago I realized a better success rate with handcalls even when calling from the truck.
This is one place that sounding pitiful can be a good thing.
I can recall many sets like yesterday but here is a good example,
Sitting on a barren ridge in my truck with three finger draws extending equally and within minutes of letting loose on a handcall, three coyotes came charging up each draw.
I could only get one as the windshield gets in the way. Got a second one a few days after.
