Tips on bobcats
While calling in a bobcat is anything but easy, a few simple strategies can help you get the most out of your next hunt.
First, up your game by using a higher quality electronic call that produces better sounds. Many older electronic calls feature a horn-style speaker system and run off AA batteries, neither of which is ideal for creating a premium sound quality.
Second, don't give the local bobcat population a free education. With so many new and inexperienced hunters heading afield, it's common to see older, cheaper calls getting a lot of airtime in the field. The result is a highly call-literate population, which makes these notoriously skittish critters even more challenging to call into shooting range.
Third, stick to the basics. Instead of getting fancy with exotic call patterns and advanced hunting strategies, the best way to improve your bobcat hunting game is to drill down on the fundamentals. The fundamentals include setting up appropriately for wind direction, maintaining concealment, and mastering the use of an electronic call with a few go-to, high-quality sounds.
