    E callers

    Looking for recommendations for an electronic call. Mostly be used for coyotes, however we do have foxes and bobcats. I have been giving the FoxPro fusion some thought but there are just so many makes and models available. Couple that with none of our local stores carry more than a handful of calls and making an informed decision gets difficult, quick.

    I really like my primos alpha dog, especially for the price.

    I like any FoxPro with the TX-1000 remote and FoxBang feature. I recommend getting the Foxgrip II also and attaching it to your shooting sticks or bipod for quick adjustments as a predator approaches. I'd probably buy a Shockwave if I was buying today.

    I have an Alpha Dog also and while the sounds are great I don't find the remote nearly as user friendly. I end up spending to much time looking at it instead of running it by feel while watching for predators. Just my personal opinion.

    I'd probably look at the more compact FoxPro models, Shockwave or smaller. I'm guessing you will be carrying it a lot on your back and while I like the volume of my Prairie Blaster 3 it weighs almost 12lbs. FoxPro's can be customized by places like Allpredatorcalls.com. They can put the sounds you want on it. I would probably get the wolf vocals and prey sounds from larger animals like deer and elk calf, stuff like that. I haven't called wolves so I'm just guessing.

    For coyotes I think a prey imitating motion decoy really helps keep their attention off me while I'm getting the gun on a coyote. I think that would be worth considering, I use a Mojo Critter or the one built into my FoxPro.

    I would be packing it in, so weight is an issue, thank you.
