Called what appeared to be a young cat in a few years ago using  cottontail in distress with Foxpro Fusion witha  decoy attachment.  It winded me as it passed on the road I was hidden next to, and stopped.  The decoy started again and the cat just started creaping towards it.  I blew the shot otherwise I'd have a pic.  Had been told by a couple guys who have called in cats, that they like higher pitched sounds and continously calling, so that's what I use. :twocents:

I'm using a closed reed fawn call. Should I be doing five minute runs on the call, or even longer. I set up yesterday mid day and was calling for about 20 seconds every few minutes but I realize e callers most likely run longer continuously.
I laugh in the face of Danger. Ha ha ha Danger Face!

My favorite call ins are with cougar vocals.  Much easier to find them when they are talking back
