Stupid rainy day, we need rain but dying to give her a run.Tortured the weiner dog with it last night- seems to be put together well and is easy to use, Wiley beware! Coyote contest this weekend but I have to work so I'm going to loan it to a team and see how they do.

    You'll like this thing....doesn't always take the place of a mouth call, but a damned handy tool to have in the arsenal...

    Please report further on this when you get to use it. I'm thinking about one for myself.

    Which model did you get? We have 2 Foxpros and would not trade them for nothing. We still use mouth calls, but the Foxpro just seems to be the Go-To deal. Enjoy your new toy.----Riflemann

    Spitfire2, mouth calls have still been my main way of calling since you can stop or repeat quicker if you see something reacting to the sound, I have an Edge E-caller I've used for two years and can't complain about it. E-callers give you hands free operation if you're by yourself for shooting, also can be played at low volume while you look for incoming varmints ;keeps your movement to a minimum. Not mention this one being wireless the sound is away from your hide, they can pinpoint that sound very well as the critter comes to the call ,giving you a chance to line up a shot.

    I carry my mouth calls with for backup, I am a little bit overweight so sometimes after a long walk I am alittle out of wind, so I tend to sit alittle longer before starting to blow on the mouth call. This is why I like the Foxpro, I can sit down and start calling right away. I also have 2 JackAttack decoys to go with my CS-24 and Fury2, these decoys seam to work pretty good.

    I am afraid the decoy option is going cause further $$$ winging its way across the intrawebs. Alas, I will probably wait til next fall to throw down for a new decoy to attach to it. By the way how much do yours weigh? I am trying to keep from packing a lot of cumbersome crap around. I keep all the predator calling items in a small day pack.

    I have both my Foxpro JackAttacks mounted on a small camera tripod so I don't have to try and push them into frozen ground up here in the north country. I would say with tripod and decoy maybe 2 pounds or so, I have never had an issue with the weight. I have a sling for the E-caller on my one shoulder, My AR on the other shoulder and the decoy in my hand when walking out to place them up.
    I try not to park my pickup or ATV more than 1/4 mile from where I call. I hide them in bottom of ditches or behind shelter belts. I have a hard time walking long distances so call me lazy but I do manage to shoot a few yotes per year and I have fun doing it. Good Luck on getting some yotes this year,----Riflemann

    Riflemann thanks for your response. We had a coyote calling contest yesterday, I had to work so was unable to participate:cuss: But the winning team shot 5 and the 2nd place team shot 5 (Tiebreaker by weight of combined dogs) 3rd shot 4. Got to BS with a bunch of the hunters after at our bar, was a real hard day to call strong North wind pretty much all day. Heaviest coyote weighed 42 lbs. and was an ugly mangy -but somehow FAT critter. Proceeds to benefit local pool and park.
