Need whatever tips y'all can give me here. I've never actually sat down with a call and hunted before. I've shot them while hunting a deer feeder but never actually attempted to call them in. I have an old fox pro that I could definitely use but want to give y'all an explanation of the area and see where y'all would set up. The only place I could think of would be in the bottom half of the property where the creeks run through. There's a 20 acre field and a 70 acre field that runs along side the the creek. A road cuts them in half with mesquite trees on both sides so you really can't see into the other field regardless of where you sit. It's in a valley and I know they have a decent population because deer/turkey populations are low. We can't trap because landowner wouldn't give us permission. Would y'all set up in one of those fields and just put the fox pro out there? I'm in the beginning stages of saving up for a thermal so this would all be at dusk. Appreciate your help and feel free to ask more questions to gather more info.

kinda hard to give you a lot of tips without seeing the layout and whats beyond your fields but i would say the main thing is use the wind to your advantage because they aint stupid. they are gonna try to smell you first and if they circle and wind you before you get a shot then its over.

oh, and also just go and have fun. None of us were good when we first started but we learn as we go and that's the best way to do it because everyone will have their own ways of doing things and all of them may be good but just different.

This is a huge subject. I suggest that you watch some of the "how to" video clips. Back in the '90s and early 2000s, I made five different "how to" videos with Mossy Oak and then one strictly on calling bobcats in the daytime, CATASTROPHIC. Most of these were on DVDs but the early projects that I did were on VHS. If you can get your hands on any of them, they are the best teaching tool that I am aware of.
If you want to read about calling critters, get a copy of EYES FRONT.
Adios,
Gary
