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!

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting.
