Yes, absolutely............. CHARGE YOUR CALLER!!!!

Great call-in! Probably 2ish year old littermates, or grown young with Mamma still hunting together. Would love this story on my website, did you take any pics of the spot?

caller is all good with fresh battery's!!!! I wish I had taken a pic of the location. I did take a pic of the track. After wards I kicked my self for not taking a pic as I went over the hunt walking out. I did mark it on my gps and earlier in the year I found tracks down the mountian  lower.  For now on I will.   Last year I found deer bones scattered all over this mountian! I'll be hunting it again in the future.

Your welcome to use the story

Here's one where I called the cat in, but never saw it. I got a vocal response and sat for a long time throwing the kitchen sink at it, but nothing. This video was with a little digital camera right there on stand. The cat was very likely within rifle range as I took this video, but probably knew I was there.

Finally starting to work with some of my video footage, learning to stack together and edit and stuff. This isn't great, but it's a good start!



Some Call-In stories re-told...







Didn't recount this one.......... but you might like it even better!!!

Actual video footage, before, during, and after, taking a foothill neighborhood "problem cat!" Actual footage! Real time! No edits!




Here's one where I called the cat in, but never saw it. I got a vocal response and sat for a long time throwing the kitchen sink at it, but nothing. This video was with a little digital camera right there on stand. The cat was very likely within rifle range as I took this video, but probably knew I was there.




5 total videos... so far... still working on this!


Here's one about the infamous "Cougar Scratch" or "Pile" or "Mound"...

This was on my friend's ranch.  Haven't seen much sign the last couple years on that particular ranch though.  Some years the tracks are all over especially around the water troughs.

Thanks for sharing all your information, it has been very helpful to my many failures in this area, knowing what I'm doing wrong.  Seeing the set ups you do on video and you explaining your tactics is very helpful.  The two cats that I have not been successful getting have both come in from downhill from me and I was set up facing uphill.   :bash:  I guess you just never know.

thats interesting. I have only ever had one cougar approach from down hill and it was while I was talking to 2 cats above me. It came from below but went around and came back on same level as me.
