I can answer a couple if ur hunting in a area were u can take bobcats foxes start with a distress call like rabbit then switch to vocals .here recently fawn distress been working in my area. I'm not talking about a baby fawn just regular fawn. Fawn can be used year around. But when deer start having fawns i would switch to baby fawn. Lets say u use rabbit distress a lot in a area switch to fawn or bid distress as soon as I switched I had a immediate responce. I was using rabbit a lot. But everyone has there own opinion this is just mine. Not real sure about the pups id say around may.

To find a bobcat is harder to find then people think around here. Foxes? Most of the foxes arent around now (atleast i never called one in using distress calls) but seems like coyotes ran them off. I tried fawn distress once this hole year. Not baby. Problem were having is getting them to yell back. Got one spot that has active dens (trail cam) but they dont come out to respond. Anyways Thanks

Bobcats are thick in my area for some reason but if u go 20 miles down the road u will hardly see any bobcat sign. And yea no problem.

I haven't heard a cat in awhile last time I heard one was 3yrs ago while I was bowhunting.. It was getting hurt or something talk about something that will make ur hairs on the back of your neck stand up real quick. Never did see it. It Was a pretty thick where I was hunting at that day. I saw some cat tracks were I thought the noise came from didn't see no hair or nothing but coulda been a different one. It was probably up on the hill above me with its buddy like lets see if we can scare this hunter so he will fall out of his treestand . Haha

Lol i heard one once. Never seen it. We get set up early bow season here. Its about a half hr before dark. My buddy went 100 yds over the hill in his stand had his 357 on him so he had no problem. On th other hand im in my ground blind and i hear this "baby cry" outta nowhere about 75 yds down the pther side. My eyes light up and i was like oh ****. My buddy texted me and said shut your light off dont move and yell if you need something. That was a bobcat. At this point i was like dumbfounded. We walk down to where he was at. He was only 40 yds from my blind!

Answer to #1, You shouldn't be hunting this time of the year. Due to the fact that coyotes are raising theri young. Shoot an adult and the babies starve. Hence no targets in the fall/winter.

Answer to #2, See answer to #1

Answer to #3, Probably never. I have a Foxpro with about 100 sounds and I use about 3. Don't need any more.

Just my Humble Opinion

If they yell back, chances are they know you are there and they probably will not come to the call.

His first post on a 5 year old topic with an arbitrary website link... Not to mention an edit 14 days after the original post? Garbage
