ok, been working w/ mouth callers for a couple of years now. time to break down and get an e-caller... i just don't have enough wind to call a critter in and hold a rifle steady...

so, who's got the best?

I'm not real high on electronic callers, however the best i've ever seen is the Wildlife Techs unit by Bill Martz, by far it has the most volumn, clarity and wide ranging sounds i've ever heard, last i heard they were about $800.

 i got the loham called . had to send it back 2 time to get it fixed. they fixed it for free but missed alot of crow hunting because it was down.  a buddy has 1 of the new 1s that has the little chip in it. no messing with the tapes. i think its the game pro. lots of vol. and no speaker wires. they get cold and a pain to rap up.

I dont actually sell calling tapes, sorry! but the tapes i use are the sceery vari pitch call and the critter call pee wee, i recorded them myself and they have proven very effective on Bobcats and Coyotes. The caller i use is a homemade little unit with a 20 watt mono amplifier, 12 Volt, deck source is a sony walkman and the speaker is a radio shack 15 watt horn, the 20 watt amp overdrives the speaker and produces a very loud high pitched sound, the battery is a lead acid 2.2 amp hr. Approx cost of unit $150, Sorry about the calling tapes, the only tape (Video)i sell is Hunting and Skinning for Profit, which involves Skinning and Fur handling.

thanks much for the input. sounds like i'll avoid the lohman!

i was considering a foxpro unit, but have doubts as to it being loud enough... not sure though.

blaine- how do you control volume on your caller? manually, or do you just record in volume changes?

On my unit the volume is controlled on the Walkman, i do have a remote Decoy system, but i dont use it much anymore, just one more thing to carry out to the stand and set up! Personally, the number of stands i can get in is whats most important to me, I want to get out there and get it done, peel my Fur then get to the next stand immediately. I like electronic units which are Compact and Loud! When looking into buying a caller, my advice would be to check the wattage rating of the Amp,(not the speaker, its meaningless) If the wattage rating (amp)  is not at least 15-20 watts, in my view, its a waste of money.  Out west here, it is wide open country, and at times very windy, and just because you have a very loud unit doesnt mean you have to use it loud at all times, check the amp rating before you pull your wallet out.
