Has anyone tried the Bullldozer moose call with any half decent success?
Seen it on WildTV... looked pretty interesting

I havnt tried it but it's the only one I have ever seen advertised that interest me. I have called in well over 100 moose with just my mouth but the bull dozer sounds good
I've seen it advertised but cant find the appeal of it myself. A cupped pair of hands and my voice is much more portable, a tin can and a shoelace if I've got a sore throat.
I don't know about that one, but I had great succes with the pro bull from buck expert. I bought there first generation about 10 years ago and called in bull moose on every hunt, even in units that holds very low moose density. http://www.buckexpert.com/languages/CatalogBElowres2k9.pdf

I've had moose follow a brush mower 1/2 the day, but I wouldn't want to rely on one to purposely call a moose. Just saying anything can work sometimes.

Nothing beats a birch bark horn. There is no way the bulldozer could compete for sound travel with the birch bark. I heard lots of stories of guys calling moose in with chainsaws and other machinery but again loud objects. I don't have much faith in any if the moose calls. Cools trick like the can and rope are cool but nothing works like a birch bark.

Just use my hands as well.:fighting0030:

I use my hands plus a shoulder blade or equivelant. Or I use the can and shoe sting.
I haven't even heard of this Bulldozer call, but I doubt that it could match a Moose as well as the can and shoe string can.
Besides, you don't have to get all that close for the call to work.
I've seen folks use some strange things to call Moose, and it worked.
One fellow I know uses a small power saw. He cuts a couple of blocks off a log and then sits down to see if a Moose shows up. He gets a Moose every fall using that thechneque. Another fellow i know used to use a trumpet. I don't know if he still does, but I know he did because I saw and heard him using it. He claimed it worked, but I can't confirm that.
I use just my voice, I'm not good at mimicing a Moose, but I get them to come in. That's what counts, right.
I think knowing how and where to call makes more of a differance then the types of call you employ.
Just making a sound similar to a Moose, may works sometimes, but there is a lot more to calling Moose then just mimicing one sound they make.
Looks kind of gadgety to me. Moose can smell and hear like the dickens, but they are blind as bats, especially when their hormones are rushing. All of their sounds aren't that hard to emulate. You can beat the willow branches with an axe handle, beat a shoulder blade against an axe handle, pour water in the lake from your birch horn to emulate urinating, use things like a cut off plastic bat. Strangely, I used the sheath of my son's plastic sword once. It was amazing. Anything thing that makes a nasaly resonance works. And it should be nasaly, so you should pinch your nostrils together whatever you use.
Rock your arms in the air slowly, maybe holding a small branch in each hand. Heck this guy even held a beer up in one hand and look what happened!! Most hunters don't realize moose speak French.
