Solo archery hunting -- tips for calling/set up?

I hunt by myself a lot, as I'm lucky to have a job that provides me with a flexible schedule in Sept. Most of my friends can not take time off in September, so I'm usually alone, which I do enjoy. But I do feel limited as my solo calls usually allow bulls to pin me down petty easily.
Dave, I know you hunt alone a lot. I'd love to hear your thoughts on strategic set-ups when solo hunting and calling. Also anyone else...
I know that usually you're going to want to move/set up toward the direction you think the bull's approaching from after you make your last call or set of calls. But are there any other little tips I could utilize? I had a lot of action last year, which was my first archery season. I got in on bulls most days, but I was usually busted by cows, or by the bull himself before I could get a shot off.
I hunt with a recurve, so my range is limited to about 20 yards accurately right now.
Thanks in advance. Only six more months to go!
