Looking at buying a electronic call and wanted to see what you guys recommend.

I have a Foxpro Wildfire ll. I had a Johnny Stewart before it. Most will work, just depends on how much you want to spend. I personally don't see the advantage of having a very expensive electronic caller which will hold 300+ calls. I use hand calls and diaphragm calls along with the Foxpro and the combination gives me plenty of calls.

We will be coming out with a new one, trying to get patents in place before we put it on the market. I am tired of getting "knocked off".
Adios,
Gary

Ive always preferred mouth calls to electronics. Much easier to control volume as the animal is getting close, plus I can work them while on the gun getting ready for the shot. Called 4 in on Thursday night within 1 hour.

Mouth calls are fun and I use them at night when I want the critters looking at me but in daylight which is my preference to hunt I like to use the Foxpro to get the sound away from my position and help me work the wind to advantage.
Last Saturday morning worked on these 3.... hit a barbed wire fence on the fourth blush

I have used about all the Foxpro models all the way back to the 416 made from a Flashlight case.... these days I use a Fusion with an external SP55 speaker all contained in a softcase designed to hold both so I never have to take them out.
I keep another Fusion for backup and a Krakatoa just in case the wind is over 50mph. wink

I just bought my first call and called in a coyote the first time using it. However it came out about 230 yards away and went across the road back into the brush and never saw it again. A buddy on my lease mentioned using a decoy that would have gotten its attention and probably would have locked onto the decoy and came right on in. So I would recommend getting one with a built in decoy or at least look into getting a caller and a decoy.

I doubt if the decoy would have helped but possible. My guess was the coyote was getting to the downwind side of the road so it could circle unseen smelling that area where the sound was coming from....happens all the time
