Are there any callers worth having besides a foxpro?
I have a simple Primos Power Dogg.. I'm actually really impressed with it for what it is. Great size, durability, range, volume and clarity.
Circe, it is my favorite call. I have used it for years and works very well.
I like my Power Dog. I picked it up when they were just introduced, and have had fairly good luck with it.
My thought was to replace it with a Fox Pro when I could afford it. Even now that I can afford the Fox Pro, I just do not see the need to replace what works.
Wildlife technologies is better then Foxpro IMHO. I've had 5 different foxpros and all had to go back for service,repairs and upgrades I still own an FX3 but use mouth calls most of the time.
I have only dabbled with electronic calls and not had really good luck with them, when we did use them but that was a long time ago I am sure they are much better now, I enjoy doing the calling myself, something about you making the noise and watching him run full bore thinking dinner is waiting then the surprise.
I bought a power dogg 4 years ago for $89.00 dollars it has 12 sounds and I have killed a truck load of coyotes with it

don't spend more than $150.00 on a ecaller, close reed distress calls are easy to use and work.
right on man the power dogg is a great caller for $90.00 had mine for 5 years , you can see the teeth marks on it from dogs hitting it on a full run. hahaha
I got mine for like $60 a year or so ago.. Natchez.
Thanks or varmint hunter, great question. Thanks for everyone's in put . I was looking to invest in an electronic call and a mouth call for a combination of the both of them. ...HotRod
Looking to get into coyote hunting once I get my precision AR finished up here soon. Is an electroNic call setup going to be that important? I was kind of hoping I could get out into the field with some carefully suggested mouth calls and practice with them and be good to go.
wait until you get a few kills in, save the money for gas ammo ect.
when your ready do not spend more the $150.00 on a call. stay with a close reed call until you get some time in a few kills.
pm me I will send you a free close reed distress and some camo to help get you started also check out coyote 101 the only copy of Dr. charles Shawley's research on the coyote instincts this is a must read.
