Alpenliter, Go to your local place that sells any closed reed call. As they are the easiest to learn to use. Go to the site ShooterJohn showed you or stop in at the Pred. Masters site and read what they got there. Don't worry about the lions. They usually come in and are gone without you ever realizing or seeing them, The same goes for bobcats also. It is all about being stealthy and watching what you are doing, the wind, your approach, and not moving around to much. Sit in front of the brush to break up your outline and don't wear bright clothing, Although I often call in nothing but shorts,tanktop and sandals in the summer months.not real camo looking believe me, but I still call in and shoot a lot of coyotes dressed like that. If the ranch you are going to call on hasn't been called before than you stand a better chance than 90% of us callers that have to call public land. Just go set up where you can see, call, watch for movement and when that coyote comes trotting in don't be in a big hurry to pull the trigger,Watch what it is doing and wait till it stops as most of the time they will stop and give you a decent shot.I kill the majority of my coyotes under 50 yards the rest out to 100 yards and a few over 100 yards. Don't give up and keep at it,You will call them up even if you think you sound lousy. If you sound like a crying baby and you call in birds you are on the right track. Good luck and really, don't worry about them lions, and if you do call one up and see it, Well I am not gonna tell you to shoot it but , but, but good luck...Walt
