Default Fox pro has been good this week!

Called in two cats this week, they seem pretty easy to call in. Name:  IMG_1421.jpg

Iíve been successful with the adult cottontail or eastern cottontail. Last month I called two coyotes and one bobcat with the jackrabbit distress.

I think calling in cats is not at hard as people think, not saying it’s a piece of cake but it comes down to being able to find out and have an idea of where the cats are before you throw the caller on the ground. Congrats on a few nice ones!

Night time. That's when they're moving the most. If we could night hunt here I wouldn't even jack around with tryin to kill them in the day time.

Either one. I've always had luck later in the evening closer to dark if you can only find time to hunt during the day. But there isn't necessarily a set time either. I've called them in during the middle of the day too. But I'd say the highest probability for success is in the morning,evening and definitely after the sun goes down.

Most of my success is 15-30 minutes before dark, I donít have a set up for night hunting but Iíve done it and it works. Iím at it again as we speak. I like to call one time early then wait till close to dark. Also hunting pigs and or a cull.

Any distress sound will work have killed them over jack rabbit and cottontail sounds most of the time but if they hang up or lose interest swapping to a really busy high pitched bird sound usually does a good job of bringing them that last little bit or getting there interest back.
