Dogs still vocal up your way? They have shutdown down here in south Georgia. Very tight lipped right now and denning is in full swing. Having more success going back to rabbit distress. Males are hunting hard to feed two mouths.

They are still vocal if you can get in close, but we aren't hearing multiple packs light it up.

Let one slip in behind us on weeping woodpecker, he took off when I turned around and saw him. Then switched to rabbit and had another come in around 250 yds, saw another come down the hill, but he winded us and took off. The third could've been the same dog we saw first that had worked around us.

At first set we did have a huge sow come into field. We treat hogs as targets of opportunity and tag teamed her with the creedmoors.

Just got a new ICOtec GC-350. Tried it out this afternoon. First set up was on a road along a fence line. Started with the ICO Young Rabbit and had a good sized yote checking it out within minutes. He started going away from me and I used the opportunity to get my rifle into position and switched to the Mouse/Vole sounds to turn him around. He came back, but kept to the edge in the brush and finally spooked and took off. I never got a clean shot, so I passed. Didn't want to educate him. At least I know the caller will draw them in.

1. 15 May 2018 Afternoon
2. 1 hunter
3. ICOtec GC-350. ICO Young Rabbit, Mouse/Vole
4. Savage Axis .223 Rem w/Sportsman's Edge 4x32 Scope
5. Warm, overcast, slight sprinkle at times
6. Liberty County farmland
7. 1 seen 0 heard
8. 0 killed

Temp 78, 99% humidity
Fields in southern Grady county
After a couple of dead sets we moved to another property. Rabbit distress yielded no results so we used a locator howl just to try to see what was in the area. Within 5 minutes this female came in silently. She was a poor female most likely from nursing. Her bag was dried up and I would guess her pups were not nursing any longer.

Raining but we thought we would try it. Met at our staging point to wait rain out. Wouldn't stop raining so we decided to scrap the hunt. Before we left I powered up my thermal to scan the field next to the house we met at. Two dogs in field. Played pup distress 3 and brought them in on a string to within 150 yards. One of the pair started circling downwind so I barked and stopped the pair and we both..........missed.
