Everybody has that sweet spot on their pot calls.  I put a raised 2-3 mm adhesive sticker on wooden side of my call at the 12 o'clock spot of the area I like. I can reach down, without looking, and orient the call to begin calling.  Nice early in the am if you are using it for soft clucks or tree yelps.

Here's a tip that might help save a new hunter some agony! If your allergic to poison oak/ivy take your gloves off before you pee. Don't ask me how I know this.

I learn to estimate distance as I walked to work.  I walked bout two miles into work in the morning and I would pick out an object in front of me and make a guess then made a one yard step counting each one until I got very good at it. For many years I would do this about every where I walked for several years and have retained the accuracy amazing well for many years.

If you need to take pain killer's, medication or maybe hard candy to keep your mouth moist so you can play you trumpet but you are worried about the noise from the pills rattling around in the bottle or untwisting a celaphane wrapper then put them in one of the cinch sacks one of your calls came in. There is no noise and they are easy  to handle even if wearing gloves.
