Hi predator hunters, Im a fox hunter from PA and Im somewhat of a rookie at fox calling and hunting. I was wondering How long I should call for? And also How long should I wait between calls till I call again?

I am from PA originally.  When I was hunting back home, I would walk into the stand and sit for 5 minute, let things calm down a little while being still and quiet.  I would use platinum grey fox on my fox pro, or a rabbit distress/mouse squeaker mouth call.  I would call for a few minutes at a lower volume at first.  Then sit for a bit, then resume calling again.  Time on stand for me was about 15-20 minutes total but I have stretched out to 30 minutes.  Time on stand also depends on the terrain you are calling.  Depending on how far away they will come from and obstacles they need to navigate, it may take more time for them to get there.  When you get up from your stand, be slow about it and check behind you.  They are sneaky.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

Yep.  It works for some reason.  Also bird sounds work too.

I've had pretty good luck using a high pitched cottontail hand call and just going easy on it, imitating a baby cottontail distress. they seem to like it.
