I think you should read the manual first. That lens has minimum focus distance 150*(95) cm / 59.1*(37.4) in. That means you need to stay away that distance, otherwise it will not focus.

Also I read one review, they said the "Macro use is restricted to 200-300mm." https://www.imaging-resource.com/lenses/sigma/70-300mm-f4-5.6-dg-macro-apo/review/
