Has anyone ever used their foxpro to call turkey? I just downloaded some of their turkey calls and was curious if anyone has ever had success with them?

I'm sure it would work just fine. Most of the fun for me however is using a manual call and interacting with them then getting them in close. Nothing wrong with a foxpro and it could have some benefits with placement also. Either way good luck and have fun.

So I guess this answers a question I had... electronic calling is legal?

Yes... on private land.

I don't think you can use electric callers on government land confused2

Calling Devices

Calling devices (including manual and mouth-operated), recordings, and electrically amplified calls may be used to hunt game animals and game birds, except electronic calls may not be used to hunt migratory game birds, unless allowed by special regulation.

Turkey is considered upland game bird I believe, so this rule would not apply. Correct?
