Try using high pitched sounds, like a bird distress. Cats can be slow to come to the call too, so you might give them some extra time and keep a sharp eye out.

keep the call going continuously to keep the cats attention and at a lower volume. I totaly agree with the high pitched sounds....and the extra sharp eye.

Bobcats like real busy sounds. woodpecker distress works well. If your caller allows you to program new sounds, try this one. (see attachment link)

The main reason to hunt coyotes in the summer is to control their population. Here in Az I hunt them in the forest and in the open areas also during winter months, but come summer I stick strictly to the open areas where the antelope are. I figure every dead coyote in these areas saves an antelope fawn. I have seen coyotes just following does around waiting to drop their fawn. That is also why you always see a rifle in my truck.

Yep ... +1 to PW's post.... Predator control for game management....I used to see 12-20 does grazing behind the house w/ just as many fawns....Over the last few years, the resident yote pack has grown & the fawns have all but disappeared... Only saw 1 fawn last summer....
