Call that sucker up and kill it if you arenít in town. I have used chicken in distress and a shotgun with good success.

Buddy was losing guinea and chickens. We set up literally on his back porch and had the call on his kids playhouse play distressed chicken sounds. First night killed 3 grey fox and thought we saw a cat. 2 nights later he got a young bob cat. Not losing anymore birds.

So far have coyote, bobcat, skunk and opossums on camera. I caught the skunk, the yote hasn't been back, but I'm missing 2 ducks and that's the 2nd pic of the cat. There is a subdivision on my left so calling may produce cats and dogs. Better start trapping I think.

Bobcat would be my first choice. Within the last month I saw a bobcat very late one afternoon carrying a Black-bellied Whistling Duck it had just caught. Those ducks used to frequent the corn feeder at the house , but since that evening they are not there as often and lot less numbers of them.

If you can legally shoot at your place calling is much more effective than traps, you can choose what you shoot, but not what gets in the trap. Youíll catch dogs and cats in your foot traps, live traps for bobcats rarely work...

That would also be my choice.

Yep, traps get unintended victims. Scoped crossbow is simple.
