    FoxPro "hare in lust" is a solid call.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Trix is for kids tearbear.. Fox pro makes a solid call.. they run 375-575.00 though.. bigger and better more spendy version gives you more options.. Bunnie in distress.. hare in heat etc.. I think tinks 69 makes a spin off version of their famous whitetail lure called fu fu fragrance.. its deadly on those willey hares.. kinda spendy though for a few "hares"..

    Hoytguy gave you some of the best advice. He took 27 hares a few weeks ago, thats a hell of a day compared to everyone else's reports.

    Why cover a ton of miles when you can call them into 1 location.

    True, the money you save in fuel, or time walking, would be worth the cost of the FoxPro call.

    But then again the going rate for a cross hare is what, $4? I might be wrong though.

    Either way a small investment can have a big payoff.

    Doing the low crawl through alders after getting eyes on a hare gives you the tactical advantage when spraying 223fmj, less branches means deflection. A stern vocal "yip" tends to lock them in place log enough to get off a shot. I think they start sniffing for a possible coyote.

    Not sure if you frequent taxidermy.net but many trappers here sell they furs there and from what I've read, anything with "Alaska" seems to sell at a higher price..wolf, fox, lynx etc.

    Wouldn't that be a 'Haralope' up here in Alaska? A trophy lope for sure!

    Also be advised, the hare # have seemed to declined this year which they should have peaked.

    Snapped a pic of this guy in 14C. Might be the cause. Shope papilloma virus according to the game bio.
