Hey, I havn't been talking on the chat for a while but I was wondering if any of you could help me with calling bobcats? I have not tried it yet but have called a couple out of season on accident. Just want to know some techniques and calls to use. Thanks.

Bird sounds or busy sounds work good for Bobcat. Also a motion decoy works well since Cats need a bit more lureing.

Be patient, they take a while to approuch.

One thing to keep in mind if you have specifically cats in mind is, are there any in the area, and if so how many. Cats have about a 40 mile home radius. That is much broader than a yote's, therefore, that is why it is yotes come in more often than cats. Skinnykid is right on the birds. I use a "Yellowhammer Woodpecker" call that works really good. I called in a nice tom about 2 weeks ago using the jack rabbit distress on the primos "Ki-Yi". I really like the "Verminators" calls. The "Tweety, Long Range Tweety, and Psycho Tweety" are all excellent for cats. I use all 3 of them. Go to www.arkyyoter.net this guy makes some awsome custom calls. He has one called "kat Kaller" it is amazing on cats. I have called in big tom's with raspy jack rabbit distress calls, so it is hard to tell. I find a lot of cats around the river bottoms, and rocky, thick stuff. I have never used a decoy, but it couldn't hurt to try. By the way, you can coax a cat in, it just takes patience because they like to scan the area. They may sit in one sport for 5-10 min before moving in any closer. So, have patience, or be able to take those long shots. Good hunting!
