Hope this helps.

I want one of Elmer Fudd's double barrel shotguns that shoots 15 times before reloading.

I have called jacks to within a few feet several times over the years though unintentionally. Just a plain old closed Reed call. I've also seen them run away more often than not.
I carry a gun because a cop is to heavy.

Average response time for a 911 call is 10 min.
Average response time for a .45acp is 900FPS.

I've called a lot in cottontail country and never saw a cottontail come into a call. I've called jack rabit country and had a couple come into a set in thick cover and there was usually a coyote along soon afterwards and just assumed the coyote flushed it through the set. I've also called in areas that were thick with jackrabbits, they would scatter all around you going into a stand and never had a jackrabbit respond on it's own.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Make mine a Minaska.

We used to do it in the Carrizo Plain area of California. Spring was the time to do so and don't be over-aggressive with the call, just some non-gravelly wails to start. You can get a bit more aggressive if nothing shows, but there was never a pattern you could definitely follow. It was always cool to see the ears bobbing through the sage on their way in! Btw, I think Tim Wells does his calling in the North Antelope Valley of CA.

I need a mesquite leaf one. The rabbits around here like to graze on mesquite leaves. It probably wouldn't be very effective though considering how many mesquite bushes we have.

I just came here to post to see if anyone has ever called rabbit because on recent episode of Tim Wells he was in Canada and calling in snow shoe hare with a call and shooting them with a pellet gun and blow gun. Funny this thread was resurrected and someone mentioned Tim as well. Why don't the rabbits around here come to a call, I love rabbit pot pie!

I have had cottontails respond (not very often, 4-6 times) to high pitched rabbit distress calls in the backyard from early spring to mid fall. A couple of times it seemed like it was momma bear coming in looking to whip whatever was messing with her babies. I have never tried to call 'em on purpose. I think I'll try some calling come spring.

For wabbits you need to sound like a carrot, not another rabbit.

I have more jack rabbits respond to my rabbit distress call than coyotes where I hunt, and ravens too.
