It's hard to go wrong with a FoxPro.

You could probably find a refurbished Shockwave for under $400. If I were going to get a new one that's the route I'd take. I've used several different FoxPro calls and liked them all though.

The Banshee is a good call. I use an Inferno and a Deadbone. Not the most expensive call they make but they'll get the job done. I also like Johnny Stewart calls. My buddy has the Bloodhound and it has good quality sounds. Another buddy of mine has a Primos and although I've shot coyotes that came in to it I don't like the sound quality. It's really choppy and almost fake sounding.

Iíve only hunted with a fox pro or a mouth call, they worked pretty good, I will take a look at the Johnny Stewartís, but heard mix reviews on he Primoís.

I've had good luck with the Foxpro Banshee. We also have an Inferno as a backup that does the job.

Killed two coyotes yesterday morning. Just ordered the inferno with a mojo. Iím done with the coyotes, been doing baits for three years, just not enough. Did catch one in a snare not too long ago. Great video, I donít think Iíve posted to here, Iíll try and do that tonight or tomorrow.

I’ve run a fox pro crossfire for the past several years called in several bobcats and tons of fox and a few coyotes. From talking with people in contests and a friend that used to work for Johnny Stewart Foxpro is the way to go just due to the quality of their sounds

Dude that's wild! I have had great success with my coyote caller, the Bullet HP by Convergent Hunting Solutions. Most coyotes I ever got in a night was 6. It also has hog sounds, and they work! I brought a whole sounder out of the woods once.
