As far as I possibly can (the max distance my FoxPro
remote will still work). I'm usually hunting solo, so they have the edge on me. They've scouted me like this twice and bailed out on both. My next set I'll try to figure where they're coming from and get side-wind to the caller in that direction, hoping to catch the scout, it'll at least give me a 50/50 shot at it.
If two guys were to set up with one guy way farther down-wind to catch the scout. I think it'd work quite well (at least around here, they seem to act a lot different once they've been pressured by hunters a couple times)
We've only been able to hunt em for a couple years now. So my advise isn't what I'd call sage-like by any means. Just what I've seen em do in the field a couple times. I think the best thing to do is to get with the AK or Canadian guys who've been hunting em for years, and pick their brains as to the proper techniques.
