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.
You are correct ,I've never hear distressed sounds in the woods.
I believe is something most predators hear when learning to hunt.
I have had success hunting coyotes ,loud blasting sound for 20 min ,then tone it down to some kind of high pitched sound for another 20.
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.

No grey fox pups around here but coyotes will respond to my FoxPro set on it.
Where else in the Constitution does it say "shall not be infringed"?

Did Donald Trump hurt your feelings? Let me get you a tissue.

I killed lions over WT and Minaska, but if you read the call-in stories, there's lots of foxpros in there! (I have two right now, myself!)

Constant sound isn't natural, but it is the most effective way to keep cats coming. One of the interesting things in the video story just posted... they stop!

90 min is pretty standard for a lion stand... they stop! If you know one is there (tracks, kill, etc) then go 6 hours!

Cougar in heat won't get you many coyotes. When I hunt multiple predators, fawn in distress has appeal to all.

Cats loose interest very fast and also like to sit and listen a lot. Iíve had bobcats sit and watch for 20/30 minutes just listening and observing. Lions will do the same thing.
Cats were killed at 45 mins/ hr 10 and hr 35 from the guys I know. You catch a lion thatís run down hungry sure they might come hammering in full bore to a distress. Most are cautious, probably thinking. Saying who is in there doing the killing when coming to a distress. Kinda puts most on edge I think.

One of those cats was killed with kid goat distress the other 2 lion vocals. Talking with lots of people and watching videos and seeing the posture. It is my opinion that they may take longer to come into vocals but once they commit they are a lot more relaxed and not on high alert or offense.

The video that rainshadow just posted in prime example. Cat shows up and stops and listens. Then come closer and sits and listens and then commits. Comes into where he feels comfy and just lays down to watch. then the hunter shot him. That cat was very relaxed you can tell by his posture.

Carpsnipe is right on... good perspectives.

I don't like the heat call because I'll take ANY cougar. Heat calls will as likely runn oft smaller cats, especially if they know big boy is around.

They breed any time of year, and keep their cubs with Mamma for up to two years, but spring is definitely the most common breeding time.

I sent a PM to BMeyer, from predator masters to see if I can get it fixed

Are they just press fit?

I live pretty deep in the woods and I hear rabbit distress and fawn distress a lot, I know they aren't from callers as they are about 5 feet from my back patio sometimes. They last for hours on end, sometimes the rabbits literally go all night. They aren't very loud so I don't imagine they project that well.

I had a fawn go off at 4-4:30 am squeeling to beat hell, does were going absolutely ape nuts, one old doe ran 1/2 mile and splashed into the river and bombed across.  I got a binos and a rifle out and homed in on the squeeling fawn but couldn't see it due to the 6 foot grass it was in and brush.   I tried to see what had it, no idea what got it.  Whatever it was didn't spooke out like a yote with does on its butt.  I figure bear, took a while for the squeeling to stop.

I don't hear snowshoe hare go off too often, can't remember one.  I've seen two different weasles chasing hares, one literally ran between my elk hunting buddy and I, stepped on his foot running from the weasle.   

We interrupted the weasles hunt so didn't hear the weasel get it to see if the rabbit went squeeling


Are you hearing actual rabbits or hares?  I wonder if they're fighting when you hear them squeeling ?
