I think evergreens are great! However in Missouri it seems like they dont really hang out in evergreens,(maybe cause theres nothing to eat?) we mostly see them in early morning or late in the evning, where i hunt it seems like they just use the evergreens as a road to come back from nighttime feeding or to get there.
Just look for signs, maybe if its hilly try to stay at the top or in the middle as opposed to the bottom.
Yes I would use a call
Early morning and evening
I've had success still hunting through cedars. Use the wind in your favor and keep low looking under the branches often with binoculars. Cedars filter your noise and by watching under the branches you can catch them before they catch you.
Rather than spend my hard earned pennies on those cool Shoot-N-See targets or even the preprinted targets at sporting goods stores, I save a few bucks for weekend plinking sessions by using paper plates as targets. A 100 count pack of paper plates costs less than a 10 count pack of preprinted targets.
If you are playing with something like a semi auto AK, or building a young shooters confidence with a 22 or shotgun, those big eight inch blanks are perfect for putting holes in all...
