Do Bears making a Hooting Owl Sound?

Do "Black" Bears in the Northeast make a Hoot sound similar to an Owl, but long an drawn out sounding? The sound starts off like a hooting owl, then sounds deeper and more like a bearish moan/ growl at the end. Do Black Bears make a long drawn out hooting mating call in the Fall?

I do believe bears hoot. I have had a bear biologist try and tell me they don't, but I have witnessed it with my own eye while bear hunting.
