Man, I don't know what it is with me and lynx and coyotes, but I have pretty decent success calling them in, but I suck at finishing the job. Today I found an area that had a lot of lynx tracks and I set a couple snares and decided to make a stand to call one in. I drove my machine a few hundred yards away from where I had seen the tracks. Set the caller in the middle of a nice wide opening upwind from my position. The snow machine was on the trail about 20 or 30 yards behind me. The caller and decoy was about 75 yards upwind from me and about 100 yards from the snow machine. I started the caller. Sat for about 15 minutes. Looked to my right and behind my shoulder about 5 o'clock, there was the lynx. He didn't see me, but he started walking up the trail towards my snow machine. He got about 20 yards from my machine and stopped. I had to turn my neck as far as I could to the right to see him. He was right in the wide open, standing 50 yards away (I used my rangefinder afterwards to check). He sat there for 10 minutes. First he would look at the caller, then he would look at the snow machine. Then he would look at the caller, and then he would look at the snow machine again. Hindsight, looking back, I wish I would have taken the shot, but it would have been a left-handed shot. I have never shot left-handed before so I opted to wait to see what he would do. After about ten minutes, which seemed like an eternity, he walked back in the direction he came from. I was hoping he was going to circle around and come in to the caller from the other direction, but no dice. Oh well, another lesson learned. Maybe I'll catch him in some of my snares.
