Here is a crash course on how to call for jackal, this is a basic idea, by no means a conclusive assessment, but this will steer you on the correct path!

1.  Go out a week before new moon to a week after new moon.

2. Go to a place with tracks, sign or dead animals and a spot that’s got evidence of jackal movement and an area that looks active.

3. Mark out 8 places that offer good vision out to 150 m in a circle around you, flat terrain with little obstacles. Don’t make stands more than 700m apart

4. Start marking the places with toilet paper along a dust road and mark them out going with the wind. As you mark them draw a picture of every spot so later you know in the darkness how the land looks.

5. The final spot you mark, No 8 will be at the bottom of the downwind side, now turn and face the wind and await darkness.

6. Call into the wind for at least 40 minutes per stand and move to the next position, but before you pack up sit still for 5 minutes and just look now and again with red light, then pack up and move quietly. Work back into the wind and keep a watch that the wind doesn’t turn.

7. Use sounds at spots that match the jackal year cycle and know the procedure on how to call and imitate a small rabbit or fawn or jackal vocal sound, don’t call to loud or to long without pausing the sounds

********** MOERSA TIP !!! *********

Remember if you are calling and a dog answers, but he doesn’t come in or his eyes are far away all the time, put off everything, quietly climb down and walk with the wind in your face to him with no lights at all if it permits you, and walk 250m and call on foot with a sound softly. Take a red light and small battery with gun and caller.


Position, Visibility, Distance and Thermals

Now, remember this, these 4 things are important at any stand, first POSITION, so you arrive at a stand, check over the area and decide if its active with tracks or looks great for cats or dogs. Then VISIBILITY, check to see how it looks, can you see ok for a night stand or are to many dongas or blind spots around, then DISTANCE, decide and if the distance between each hunt spot is enough and that you have enough distance to call at this spot at least 150m in a circle around you that you can see, then THERMALS is the wind still correct so that when you come here later you are still working your way back INTO the wind and NOT with the wind!

Don’t forget to draw a basic layout of each stand and mark them so you know what drawing is what stand, then at night on your arrival, look at the drawing and it will refresh your memory as to how the land looks, you will then know the areas that offer the best approach areas..

These 4 things you must look at carefully.
