Whenever I open your website it completely crashes my Google chrome. Something might be wrong with it.

Just pulled up chrome and opened it, and it worked fine for me, don't know what to tell you. Let me know if you find out anything.

They must not be on the move covering ground  as much since they are probably just chowing down on all the deer that are so concentrated down low. We have more deer, elk, turkeys  on our property and neighboring property than any winter before.  Tried calling the other day after getting trailcam pics of a cat several times in a week and finding crap full of hair. But no luck so he must’ve been content with the kill he had already.

You can never tell why they won't respond. Keep planning set-ups on it!

Speaking of planning....

I'll be out early Saturday for a morning hunt. Got a medium sized cougar on my deer cam last week. He's cruising awfully close to my parents house where my kids like to play outside. My buddy and I will see if we can call him in using a fawn mouth call. I've got three good spots to set up.
I laugh in the face of Danger. Ha ha ha Danger Face!

I don’t have a lot of faith in foxpro… I have an old Johnny Walker call that has more response but I think mouth calls are king.

I know 3 different people personally that have killed lions by foxpro.

They do work just fine can't call cats where they are not and lots of guys don't call long enough for cats.

I've called one in with FoxPro wildfire 2. Couldn't shoot because I was hunting with the thermal. Calling one in is one thing. Seeing it is another.

Pre-setting cameras then calling would be interesting.
Where else in the Constitution does it say "shall not be infringed"?

I'm definitely a rookie, I sure hate knowing little about hunting a certain way.  Watching more videos and reading threads. Called for a half hour straight with the female call, then waited about 5 min and then called again for a few.  But I realize their territory is huge so just have to get lucky and be in the right spot.  someday

Does the time of day make a huge difference?  I have to admit, after the regular hunting season is over, sleeping in is nice!  So, most the times I've called have been in the afternoon. One time we called till dark, didn't see anything.

I've never called in a cat.
But I'm always there for an hour min.
Sometimes I'll pause at 30 min and change sounds .
But my advise is pretty limited with little experience.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I find it funny how you are supposed to call for half hour straight, yet, I've never heard that noise in the woods and I've spent a ton of time in the woods. I believe you guys, just saying its odd I've never heard it before.
