I do alot of calling, bear, lions bobs and yotes.  I have had alot of luck with the Circe 3 in 1 call.  Love calling yotes and bobs at night.  Big Red saucers come bouncing in on you  :):)

I do quite a bit of calling for coyotes and the occasional bobcat.  I usually shoot around 30+ song dogs a year.

Rick - I go by Billythekidrock most places, not riverswild anymore...but thanks for the complement.

As Rick mentioned, I love to call bears. I also call a little for coyotes (tough on the coast) and bobcats and I am always waiting on a cougar.

I'm not the best, but give it a whirl every now and then.  I got the fox this year, that was one goal, the next goal is a cougar.  I am much better with the hooved animals, but practice makes...well not perfect but better.

I have called in exactly 1 yote and smoked him.  i need to get out at the in-laws and do it again one of these days
i killed a red fox while deer hunting back home in upstate new york and pretty much ruined it with the '06, but gave it to a taxi to use as a display piece in his shop and he fixed him up pretty good.
have not seen a fox in wa.

I had been calling for years in Calif.  Taken coyote, bobcat, bear and fox with my bows.  Moved up here in 93 and want to start calling again with my grown son, but not familiar with the area (need help there). Use an old weems all call and the Crit-R-Call.  Never had to much luck with electronic calls....

Bearbait - What kind of areas and critters are you looking for?  Bearman makes great calls for all critters.

Reside in the Spokane area, mainly interested in Bobcat, lion but like to see coyote also.  Will hunt mostly with camera, but some bowhunting, so can hunt some pretty tight areas.  Would like to find some moderatly brushy canyons.  Someone suggested the Snake river breaks, where may that be?
Rick: do you make open reed calls?
Thanks, Berarbait

bearbait...lots of yotes on the snake river breaks...that'd be a couple hours south of you. problem there is finding land to access, but the mention of coyote or lion shooting should come across good to the farmers down there. they don't like all the yotes, especially this time of year with fresh calves on the ground.

along the snake river. no where specific, just the lands that border the river. a lot of people who hunt there will access it by boat, but if you can find a landowner, maybe feel free to hunt land, you'd be golden.
it would be about a 2 hour drive from the spokane area south on 195 to around clarkston, wa.
you definitely don't have to hunt the snake river to find coyotes. they are everywhere.

I coulda swore I posted "I call predators"?

I also posted I make calls, and some pictures, did my post get deleted because of that?

Krusty, I don't think anyone deleted any of your photos or posts. When that happens we have a "recycle bin" and there hasn't been anything in there from you.

If I was going to delete someone's post I would tell them when and why, or would usually do so when they ask me to. If you plan on selling calls on our board you should read our policies under the Classifieds board

I spend some time calling in the winter months...Ive never had anything come in that I know of other than coyotes.  Have been doing some spot lighting this last winter too.  There is alot of ground to drive and spot light out here.

Bearbait, you should check out the MILES upon MILES of BLM land west of Davenport off Hwy 2.  If you ever want to go sometime let me know, be more then happy to show you around out there.

Add another die hard predator caller to this list.  My primary cals are a Slydog Howler, Syco Tweety, and an Arky Screaming Demon.  I'll also go to an old Faulks Jackrabbit, Primos Ki-Yi, and I like Wayne Carlton's old green bear call too.

I also have a couple of Arky's early calls. The only custom calls I have are Bearmanric, Arky, and my own. I do have a couple production/mass produced calls but I don't use them much anymore.

Krusty,

What you could try, is to save some calling sounds to your computer, and if you can't practice at home copy them to a format you can use in your truck.
Record them like a foreign language tape, let the sound play a series, then mimic it.

Using a predator call, or most any game call, is like using a musical instrument.
It's just gonna take time to learn, and nobody can "give you" that talent.

More than anything though, I believe, the sound you make isn't really that important.
If you sound like something dying, or something mad, or just plain something interesting, there's a chance animals are going to come to check it out.
Hopefully it'll be the animal you're trying to call.

What calls are you using, and what are you having trouble with?
