FAQ with Gary Roberson

1. When will the new caller be available?

As soon as we get a patent in place. Hopefully in March.

2. How good is a coyotes hearing?
As a rule his hearing is about 7 times better than ours.

3. How long do you sit on a stand?
Normally 15 to 20 minutes, unless I am targeting bobcats, then 30-45 minutes.

4. Do you call continuously on a stand?
No, I try to be realistic. Critters are incapable of making sound continuously.

In big open country I like 22-250. In cover, when calling them in closer I like 223.

6. Favorite hand call?
Mini-Blaster – of course.

7. What is your favorite place to call coyotes?
For sheer numbers, south Texas. For best calling terrain, northeast New Mexico.

8. What is your favorite rifle for predator calling?
The Ruger American Rifle Predator because it is lightweight, shoulders quick and agile and it has a good trigger.

9. What is your favorite scope?
The Trijicon AccuPoint 3-9 X 40 Rifle scope with the Green Dot.

10. What is your favorite ammunition?
Hornady Varmint Express 22-250 Remington 55 gr. V-MAX.

    Hi Gary I really like your coyote hunting videos,and your style of hunting. I have been using 55 grain 223 ammo for coyotes,but all I can find now is 40 grain isn’t that too light for a coyote? Thank you Larry

    Hi Gary, a few questions! – The cassette tapes have been a staple for many years in my father and uncle’s arsenal with much success! Will those sounds be updated to mp3 files so we can purchase/download?
    Do you have any recommended calling sequences for coyote, bobcat, gray fox in a typical 15-20 minute set? (I know that might depend on where you are in the US, but I hunt in Texas!)

    I believe my wife and I have a mountain lion on our property in Indiana. I know we have several bobcats. One day last summer a bobcat came within yards of us one day while backing the car out of the driveway. We watched this cat come from the east walking west down a dirt road we made going to the back of our property. This cat walked approx. 200 yards straight to us. I have pictures of the encounter I would love to share with you if I can. We also like someone to look at a picture of what we think is a mountain lion, we caught it on our game camera back by our deer feeder. After watching your show for the first time today, you have gotten me intrigued in predator hunting for coyotes. Lord knows we have plenty of them to hunt. We also know it’s illegal to hunt the bobcats and mountain lions in Indiana. We just want to get our coyote population under control, with one of your calls. You have a very informative show on predator hunting and enjoy it very well.

    Gary, I’m fairly new to predator hunting. I got the bug when I set up my call and after about 10 min watched come in rapidly to the call. My question is this, how do you decide which call to use? Do you rely on distress calls, i.e. cottontail, jacks, or other varmints? Or do you use challenge howls or locator howls? This is the one part that throws me and I’m not sure I’m doing it right.

    Saw the rabbit come to the call. Saw a show where in Alaska they used caller to bring in snowshoe rabbits. They recorded sound a male rabbit makes when he claims his territory. They used air rifles.
    Maybe you could develop a call that would work on cotton tails.
