“WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!”  The  simple call baited about 400 through the gate. I was planning on opening the gates into the next pasture in preparation for our move in a couple of days.  It worked out that a large portion of the herd was close to one of the gates and figured giving the call was worth a shot. Within a few hollers a small number of cattle were headed to the gate. A few hollers more and a few more cattle perked up to what was going on.  Within 20 minutes easily 400 had made their way through the gate, some traveling a good distance to get there.
