We've had three calfs killed in the last week. Problem is these dogs have been called at by our neighbors and they are extremely weary of the calls at this point. We are going to try and make a few stands on Saturday morning and any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Without any other information, it sounds like your bait is your calves and that you may need to shoot around, near, amongst your herd. That isn't necessarily a dangerous thing to do, depending on how dispersed the cattle are.

Get some coil spring traps and learn how to make a dirt hole set or use snares. Another forum (trapperman) can teach you everything you need to know. Otherwise Follow Doc's advice and get a trapper out there. Traps hunt 24/7...
They are attracted to the afterbirth from calves being born, calves are secondary target. Usually mama cow won't let yotes near calves...killed 2 of 3 couples weeks ago worrying the cows away from where the calves wee born the night before... Hunt near your herd like others said above. No need to call they will come by looking for groceries sooner or later.
