I had one come into a cottontail distress this past weekend. Too bad we can't shoot them here.:frown As far as setups, I would just setup the way you would for yotes. At least that is what I was doing. I don't know for sure because I have never hunted them specifically. The way I hunt yotes on my farm is I set up to where it is very hard for them to circle down wind of me. But I'm not sure cats act the same. This one came in very fast, and never even acted like he was checking the air. Good luck, hope ya bag one.

Around water, in thick briars or brush....I prefer to hunt them during the day with a decoy but night can be effective

thanks, is it legal to bait them where you hunt?
