How much money are you will to part with? I started with a home made caller and a wireless reomote controller. I spent probably 200 bucks in parts and stuff, after 2 seasons I bought a Minaska Outdoors M1 Bandit. should have saved that first 200 bucks, and bought my call the next year. I have a buddy who uses a Foxpro unit. He started with a FX3 and now he has the FX5. When we go out we take both callers. I like his caller and I like my caller. the last 6 months there have been new models added at the lower end of the cost spectrum from Johnny stewart calls and Primos.

My Bandit was $450 3 years ago. Foxpro is releasing a new caller called the fury, which means a lot of guys are upgrading and selling their older models. check out the foxpro HSOforum, they sell refurbished units as well. Minaska is a great caller, but they have been suffering some growing pains as a company and have been suffering with customer service.

I always head out with electronic calls and hand calls.

The foxpro's have two speakers, one dome and one horn speaker. I don't really notice the volume difference between mine and theirs.

Hope this helps some, definately look online at the company's HSOforum and other sites where people sell stuff globall-E!

any of the calls will work effectively with the right set up, including hand calls. I have a preymaster from johnny stewart and i love it. All i use to use before was hand calls till i won the preymaster from a banquet. Now i use both my hand calls and the preymaster. I do have more yotes comming in to the call and closer with using both calls compared to the hand calls though. Sure you can go out and spend lots of money on calls if you want. Think about what your accutally doing with the animals you kill. Are you selling the fur or just shooting them to get them out of the area? I figure with what little i have invested in my calls and for how many coyotes i shoot and sell, I could go out and buy a 5,6 hundred dollar call but i'll just stick with what is working good for me!

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
