And I'd really like to see the animals come in to just a general range around the call spot, rather than exactly to it.
As it is now, it's super easy to get a broadside when treestand hunting. Get out of the tree, walk 30m perpendicular to the direction of the animal, and call there. Get back in the tree & wait. Perfect broadside almost every time. Not a "cheap trick", just using the caller to the best advantage according to it's design.
Hit the nail on the head.
