I just bought a FoxPro and plan to use from tree stand (extra heavy brush and I am fidgety anyway).
Where should the caller be placed in relation to the tree?
Behind me along the expected avenue of approach? Off to one side?I also read that use of a tripod will get you some distance. I got the FoxJack 2 to attach to the caller, so maybe the tripod isn't such a great idea.
Any advice for a novice caller user appreciated.

Almost for forgot, what is the best distance for reliable use of the remote control?

Thanks.
This is a bow only area (woods next to neighborhood), bordering farmland.
I saw a pair earlier this week while deer hunting. Got one to within 20yds with a mouth call I keep on my climber, but he stopped broadside with a tree blocking a good shot. Saw a single an hour later.
These suckers hardly ever stop moving and with the brush, I hear them long before I see them!
