I am thinking about getting into calling for bobcats in PA, in 2F. I have called in coyotes, but thought about giving this a try with a FoxPro. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

yes do your scouting and be prepared to stay on stand longer than you would for fox
What should you be looking for when scouting for bobcat habitat, other than prints or scat?
Litter boxes and catnip are dead giveaways.

I have using a fox pro and believe or not grey fox distress. Shot with .221 fireball and did a lot of damage. It's tough to find sign with no snow. They act just like a house cat. They take there good old time coming in.

Using a rabbit in distress mouth call during this past bear season I called a bobcat in to about 20 yards. My first up close encounter with a cat - i hit the call softly sitting above a rhodedendron covered cliff hoping to draw an opportunistic bear out, I worked the call about 3 minutes, again, on the soft side, but only managed to see the cat....
