That depends on what you mean. I've had some that worked best for seeing if there's anything in the area and I've had some that would make the dog come running in the fast trying get a shot off before its on top of you is a sport all on its own.
I've been told that the pup distress works good just about all year round, but is best during the spring and summer. So far I'm going to agree, it had brought a few coyotes in over the past couple weekends.
There's also a rabbit in distress which usually works pretty good for the areas me and a buddy go to. Another animal in distress that really got the suckers going nuts was a fawn.
One that can really get a dog moving or at least howling back at you, I sadly don't know the name of. It's basically like a gathering call, it sounds like a bunch all howling and barking in the same manner they would just before a hunt.
So really it kind of depends on the day and how the dogs are feeling, as well as what animals you've got roaming the area you're in.
