3 Surefire Tips for Calling in More Bobcats
Make your next bobcat hunt a success, with these tried-and-true strategies.
Notoriously wary, bobcats challenge the most experienced hunters. Because of bobcats’ fine-tuned senses, they can certainly be difficult to call in. Even so, successfully calling in one of these wary cats provides an adrenaline rush unlike any other, as many hunters have discovered.
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 of AA batteries; neither is ideal for creating a premium sound quality. Convergent’s Bullet HP, however, features a powerful, integrated Li-ION rechargeable battery and conical speaker design, which is the style of speaker most often used for the best sound quality today. Because it produces a more vibrant, fuller sound, the Bullet HP is a simple yet effective way to draw in those leery, call-shy bobcats that never present a shot.
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, making these notoriously skittish critters even more challenging to call into shooting range. A call with poor sound quality is a great way to give a free education, which is why a quality call, like the Convergent Hunting Solutions Bullet HP Bluetooth electronic call, is so crucial to the success of your next hunt.
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. A premium electronic call helps newbies, and hunters of all experience levels, to produce the most consistent calls. Available in the Google Play or Apple App Store, Convergent’s Predator Pro app features a sound library with the most reliable calls, from distress sounds to different bird noises. In addition, the app can be used to pair your smartphone with the Bullet HP calls wirelessly up to 300 feet away, with four presets to save your favorite calls.
