    I have been looking at both FoxPro and FlexTone calls. The FoxPro calls are all over the place with price and features. Trying to figure out just what I need from an electric call is getting kinda frustrating. I am using mouth calls right now, but would like to step up to an electric call without breaking the bank. Any one have any experience or recommendations?

    I've used FoxPro but never Flex tone. I actually prefer mouth calls but there are times and conditions where an electronic caller is the answer. For me, battery consumtion and weight are my biggest hang up with e-callers. Foxpro is very good though, and i've heard they have excellent customer service.

    Fox pro is my favorite, I have Firestorm it has been a great call good battery life easy to use remote and loud. I picked up a power dog a few years ago and hated it. I like to use the electronic when I am hunting by myself otherwise I most always use mouth calls.

    I use a Turbo dog and at half the price of most FoxPro models... way worth it. Plus you can load more sounds, if you download a MP3 mod file, you can make your own call sets. The 4 main hunts on the system work great. They had some issues when the 1st released, but worked them out.

    IMG_0777.jpg I am VERY NEW to predator hunting. Mainly big game and Thunder Chickens. I just bought the ICOTEC GC300. $69.00 through SHOPDEERHUNTING.COM Very simple, sounds great and in my price range.

    The main story to this saga is knowing the gun and your scope. The last three critters that i have come acrossed or called in got too close too fast. I have been shooting under them. The bobcat was 100 yards so i got him fine. I hit his neck and lights out. I am trying to get mama to let me buy a gopro so i can get some video. More to follow. Turkey opens sat. And things look good

    I can't wait to get a cat! I hear we have a lot of them in my area. I haven't seen one, but the yotes are definitely plentiful!

    I have been thinking about going down into Kentucky with my MVP for a bobcat hunt. We have spotted a bobcat at my families farm here in southern Ohio, but there aren't enough of them here to legitimize killing them for management. I guess I am sticking with coyotes for now!

    Hate to bring up a dead post, but also hate to start a new one if its unneeded.
    Talked to the local Rangers here. Northern Cleveland Nation Forest in SoCal. I live less than 1/2 from a trail I can access tens of thousands of acres.
    The ranger said the coyote and bob cat hunting should be easy. No pressure on the predators at all. He did say to avoid a mouth call do to the massive amounts of mountain lions. There's a ton of them because they're protected here. He said I would be taking unnecessary personal risk using a mouth call.
    So, I'm looking at remote electronic calls and saw some with wiggly furry decoys, I believe Mojo makes them.
    Any input would be great.
