Here are some recent shots from a trap I created a few weeks ago.  I was after a large great horned owl that I know lives in the area.  I got this barred owl and a coopers hawk instead.  I used a trap bait caller and my S600.




Coopers hawk



Here's a pic of the "trap."

Hi pastorJim
That is a very interesting setup. I have a pair of great greys that I just can't get close enough to for my liking. I am very curious about these bait callers, how loud they are, and where you get them. I really think a quiet (SQUEAKER ) type would work for owls but I don't know much about them or if they are even avaliable. Great images especially of the hawk!

The lucky duck trap bait caller can be purchased off ebay, amazon, and a few other places. They run on 4 AAA batteries and last about 3 weeks. I noticed the other day when I was checking cams, I could hear it at about 50-75yds away. Of course there are variables such as wind that could affect that. The great thing about that is that it calls even at night when the owls would be most active.

I've opened up two Trap Bait Callers and put them in a build so the operate only at night and run on four AA batteries. My post on that is here  -- http://www.diytrailcams.com/post/caller-build-8433326?pid=1295008055

An owl can certainly hear the sound from much further away than any human ear; it's a good question as to how far that could be.

The barred owls cant resist the callers and the coons cant either.....I recommend that you stake them down because I've had coons walk away with them(eventually found them a couple hundred yards away) and I have had the owls pick them up and fly away with them (I found one dangling in a tree branch) before dropping them. They are certainly lots of fun though!
