I'm no expert here.
A friend told me with the electric calls ,never go above 3/4
Volume,that they sound fake at full volume.
More realistic sound at 3/4 or lower.
That's why I was using hand call for hi volume.

Another thing I did when I got the decoy thing.
Is I had my call on a tri-pod.
Cheap Amazon basic tripod.
I was trying to bring something up the draw,it didn't work out that way. But I've been putting the call about two feet above the snow level.
That way to make decoy more viable from farther distance.
Like said no expert here.
But those are other things I'm doing that I never did before.
Figured I'd share ,might help. Some one get more predators.

One more tip.
I had seen a bunch of cougar tracks there durring rifle season and went back. The one I shot was not the cat I was targeting. Mine was a sub-adult or juvenile cat.
Not a kitten,not an adult.
I was after big moma or papa. Which by the tracks would be twice the size.
HUNT where the animals live.

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.

Congrats that's crazy!

I just picked up a foxpro and did my first stand today. Only called in a Raven. Sightings and pics of cougar, bobcat , and coyotes all around my house daily all of sudden. I was imagining some kind of first time luck and how crazy it would be then 20 minutes in my kid demanded to go home.

Ravens and crows showing are signs that your doing it right.
I setup two dozen times last year with nothing.
I always plan on calling 45-60 minutes in my areas.
Just cause I think predators are to use people predator hunting..
And Good luck helps.

Maybe in April ,when I get a new tag for next year.
I've been wanting to take the boy out.
He still has a cougar tag.
And I kinda want to predator hunt more than ever now.
I've been waiting for a part for my 4x4 and I don't even know if that's gonna fix it.
Working on some chains for truck also.
The boy will Christmas vacation from school ,I'll try to get him out then.

Every dead cat is a good cat. You can't kill enough of them as with all of the other predators.

We should all put as much time into hunting predators as we do hunting deer & elk.

I ran into a couple guys years ago near Ellensburg that claimed every time it snowed, they jumped on snow mobiles and ran around looking for tracks. When they found a fresh cat track, they would walk it out. They claimed to have killed five lions in the last three years.
