Calling. I like Tweety, my Quaker Boy Super Screamer, or anything shrill. It seems also that cats are a sucker for the woodpecker distress. In my opintion bobcats have the attention span of a 3 year old, so keep calling at them. It will be a trial an error method at first. Keep in mind that you probably call in a cat every 5th stand, in an area with lots of cats. They are just so dang hard to see.
Okay, you have a cat coming to the call, you see him and he is hung up. When his head starts going back and forth, you better shoot. He is thinking about bugging out on ya. This is where you put the crosshairs betwix his running lights and tip him over.
Sounds simple right?
Good luck!!!! Keep me posted on your success!

Good advice already. If I feel there is a bobcat in the general are, I will spend much longer on a setup than for coyotes. Sneaky critters indeed. Over the years of all the bobcats I have taken I can only recall 2 or three that I saw moving in. The rest were "just there". Lots of times all you will notice is a bump on a log or a dark spot in the grass that you have not noticed before. This cat just showed up as a dark spot in the CRP that was not there 15 seconds earlier. I had left my electronic caller playing a mouse squeek for about 10 to 15 minutes straight when he showed up.
I'm new to bobcat hunting. Anyone have any tips on hunting them? I'm in the Albany, NY area.
