First of all I hunt on public land in timber ranging from somewhat open and mature hard woods to the thick brushy stuff, no open fields to speak of. I use a Alpha Dogg and been using the Randy Anderson territorial and denning sequences with the idea that they are nearing the end of mating and probally denning up. am I right? if not what calls should I be using? (I did try distressed juvenile cottontail once and brought in 2 domestic cats , I just figured they were living breathing decoys/ And how loud should I be calling. I have been calling fairly loud, with no luck. Then I got to thinking..I only have a max of maybe 80 yrds of visability at best. So maybe they are closer than I think and blasting them to loudly with calls is spooking them. Anyone wanna put in their 2 cents?

One of the spots I hunt is thick hardwoods. I usually do a howl at night and see if there are any in the area. If there are they will usually howl back. This late in the season I use distress calls first. If they don't work I use a female howl or whimper as their breeding season is wrapping up.

Start off on a low volume and if nothing comes in then turn it up. I hope this helps!
