I have been using the ultrasonic caller for three years now and am seeing predators react strangely to the realistic sounds. Three years ago, Mike Connor, Steve and I witnessed a cottontail mama run to the caller and sit down within three feet of the speaker when I switched to the baby cottontail from a grown cottontail. She stayed there until I walked down to pick up the caller. Good thing is Steve captured the entire sequence on video for CARNIVORE.
To date, I have witnessed (on three occasions) coyotes getting my stink off the call when getting downwind, leave there running and come back to the caller when I turned it back on. I have never had a coyote come back to the call once they got my stink.
A couple of weeks ago, I was calling in the Panhandle when walking into make a call, coyotes began howling about half a mile away. This triggered coyotes to my left as they began barking at us. I was disgusted as I knew the coyotes to my left were about 300 yards away and had hear us drive in. I decided to use a canine pup distress and on the first series, I heard a coyote "yip" two times while running to call. I have never heard this in my life. A total of five coyotes responded on this stand.
Week before last, I was calling about 9:30 AM when a bobcat stepped from the brush 30-40 yards from the call. He was carrying his head really high and walking straight legged and fast. When I clicked the baby cottontail on to coax him in, he broke running and appeared to bank off the caller. I have never seen a cat respond to a call that aggressively in the daylight.
Using the ultrasonic caller that produces a full spectrum of sound has made calling predators a new game.
Adios,
Gary

We are having a difficult time securing semi-conductors to build put into production. I have a few scattered with various field testers and others being tested for drop tests and other government tests. I am hoping to have in full production this summer and it should have been two years ago.
Since we have some much money tied up in the R&D on this product, the only place that you will be able to purchase one will be from Burnham Brothers for at least a year or two.
Thanks and Adios,
Gary

This is like post ban automatic rifles...lots of cool stuff that you can't have.

I know supply chain disruption is real and you're trying, Gary. Hopefully you'll be able to make enough for the demand

Yes Sir, right now we have over 9,000 folks wanting them. I sure would like to get some money back as it has been going one direction for nearly 5 years now.
Thanks,
Gary

Yes Sir, most likely it is going to be called, FREQ pronounced "Freak" which is also a play on "Frequency"...What this caller is all about. We are getting 45,000 to 47,000 Hz on the top end where all other electronic callers peak in the 15,000 to 17,000 range. To date every distress sound or vocalization has gone over 40,000 on the high end. The first baby cottontail we recorded went over 90,000 Hz!!!
Adios,
Gary

Six patents in place along with the name "FREQ" trademarked. Trying to get enough semiconductors to build 5,000 units. Looks like Aug-Sept.
Thanks for your patience, hope we get them on the market before I go broke...
Adios,
Gary

Well I've hunted with Gary using both of his callers and can say from experience there's a hell of a difference between them. I watched the cottontail incident and witness a Jackrabbit do the same thing at the same spot, had a yote come in and that kinda screwed things up. Since using the new caller we're calling in more cats than before, last trip we had a cat come in just a few minutes after Gary shot a Yote. I haven't seen a cat or a yote veer off once they started coming in.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

Gary,
You still have the original list of names on a waiting list? I bought another FoxPro X24, but am chomping at the bit to get one of these. I put my name on it back when you first said these were coming out.

Microchips are still in short supply but we have been told that we should have some in October. We increased our PO to 5,000 units. I am putting the finishing touches on the packaging right now.
Adios,
Gary

So the sounds are recorded with special equip to get the high frequency so I’m assuming the speaker will be able to output high freq? I’m looking forward to it.

Yes.

He had one at the TTHA and talked about it, there are two speakers one for low and one for high.

He should post a picture of it.

Will do.
Had to laugh on Saturday evening as a young man came by the booth wanting a FREQ. He said that he was willing to trade two Foxpros and a Lucky Duck for one!
Adios,
Gary

When I started this project five years ago, I thought that all I needed was the ultrasonic speaker. After using this speaker, we found that the ultrasonic speaker does well producing sounds from 15,000 Hz to 50,000 Hz but cannot produce the low end frequencies. This required us to build a speaker designed to reproduce the extremely low frequencies down to 200 Hz. This speaker works in harmony with the ultrasonic speaker, phasing out in the 12,000 to 15,000 Hz range as the ultrasonic speaker employs as frequencies increase.
At my age and after firing thousands of rounds of ammunition, I cannot hear frequencies above 10,000 Hz. Therefore, I only hear sound produced by the specially designed low frequency speaker located on the bottom.
Adios,
Gary

I assume this is still just the prototype and not an actual production caller? Are you still looking at Oct as a release date?

That is a prototype. Still looks like the end of October...praying we don't have another disaster. doggit, we are going to start with the folks who have been on there the longest, hopefully that means you get one of the early ones.
Thanks,
Gary

Cost is going to be much higher than what we originally thought two years ago. At this time, I am estimating $1,500, most of this is due to the cost of semiconductors and the cost of R&D over five years.
Adios,
Gary
