Anyone know of any cats in NWA? Has anyone ever seen any in the Madison County refuge?

Thanks guys. Ive just hammered my ground hard. I have alot of timbered ground but hate calling in the trees. I also hate public land but cats are stupid and can be called over and over.

My neighbors say there is one around here, but I've only got 10 acres, and could get permission on another 40 around to call on. They keep seeing it on the road in the morning. There are lots of yotes around too.

I think the rabbit sounds are best. Some people use bird sounds too. Just play something that is real busy. I use baby cottontail, adult cottontail and lightning jack in that order. I just put on a sound and let it play. Change sounds every 5 minutes or so. Stay on stand for 12 to 15 minutes. The biggest deal is to sit extremely still. They dont always come charging in like a coyote and are alot more likely to see you. Im not a cat calling expert by no means, but Im friends with some of the best cat killers in the nation. I get some inside tips. :cool:

Well I went against my better judgement and went and called cats on public land. I should have knew better. I finally quite the charade and went to some of my private land. I called in a hard running pair right before dark. They were on top of me before I knew what was happening. I couldnt do nothing with them. They scattered like quail. I managed to get the female to come back for a second look. The male wasnt having anymore to do with the situation.
