Default Went out Sat

I received my fx 3upgraded to a 5 about 2 weeks ago. Finnally had a chance to takeit out sat evening. Set the quivering rabbit and call 129yds in this old clear cut. Within two mins a couple ravens were taking notice, but thats it. Called for about 35 mins using differant rabbit distress sounds. Nodda nothing. But thats okay, there's always next time

just curious do you always set the caller and decoy that far away from you?

I agree ilyotehunter thats about a 100 yards farther than I do it,but if it works good maybe I'm setting up to close to my caller for the last 10 or 12 seasons,either way good just being out there hunting!!

Not knocking your technique BlackLab,I just always liked to set up within about 30yards of my caller or decoy,but I live in KY and a long shot may be 2-3 hundred yards and a lot of times you cant see over the hill a 100 yards unless your in a treestand,it seems they might be less likely to see you when they come in,but more likely to see you if they are close while you are setting up.If you kill them like that,then I wouldn't change a thing .If you are calling in coyotes,then there is no wrong or right ways.I just like to see the look in their eyes when they realize that there is no rabbit or it's fake,I have a FX3 and thought about the upgrade but dont like the 2hundred bucks part,how long did it take to get your call back?

three weeks from ship to return. Glad I did it just wish the lettering onthe remote was bigger. Just so I don't have to mess with the reading glasses
