A few suggestions for you who just starting out.
They like rabbits and rocky terrain with thickets. With fresh snow on the ground you can find their tracks pretty easily if you cover some ground. If the snow gets hard and crusty they stay on top and their tracks don't show as well. They take a lot shorter stride then Coyotes and never show claws.
Cats tend to be more cautious then coyotes but they are much more curious. If you can get a rabbit decoy that moves, it will help. Expect the unexpected, quite often bobcats will climb a tree or a rock and check out the situation before committing and coming in. Many times like Mountain lions they see you long before you see them and slip away before you get a crack at them and other times they stay put for quite a while listening, so mix up your calling to entice them. Call longer at each site, up to an hour before giving up and moving on. Use a rabbit distress call and also try bird distress calls, like a woodpecker. Hope that helps, Jeff

It can take up to an hour for a cat to fully come to a call

It's true not all of them will take an hour but some sure will. Sometimes they'll sit and watch for an hour and as soon as you move....they slip away and you never knew they were even there....that is until you see their tracks or as PH said you see them on the way out of there but then it's to late.
