Basically any with any closed reed distress call, cup your hand aroung the front of the caller to control volume and a little bit of the tone, open and close your hands to kind of "waahhwahhh" the call as you blow in the other end.

A wounded rabbit really raises cain when it is hurt, so don't be afraid to really lay into the caller. 15-20 second burst, then wait 2-5 minutes and hit another 15-20 sec. burst. Start out with a little less volume at first in case one is close by. move the call side to side as you call too. Good luck....

Thanks Val, congrats on the addition to your lineage, Gramps, or are you going something more trendy like Boppy?

Tanman, where are you located and where are you hunting? Welcome to FM by the way...

I used to deer hunt right across the river from Houston, so I know you are thick with coyotes in that part of the state. Lots of ravines and "coulee's" down there.

TANMAN I've hunted with some people that blew a call so bad I was embarassed for them but they still managed to call critters in. Hard to screw up too bad with a rabbit call if everything else is done right they'll come in if in the mood.

Houston is down around rushford and lanesboro along the root river. Basically SE of you about 60 miles. I will hunt coyotes where ever, flat land is hard unless there is cover for them to be in, I like some hills so I can get in with out letting them see me. get a good handle on the calls, and be ready to not move. If you goose hunt and call, you should pick it up pretty quick.

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
