Default FoxPro was on fire this weekend

Went out to my BILís lease In Seymour, this past weekend to just get away and see some different country. He mostly deer hunted but I wasnít really keen on shooting deer at somebody elseís place seeing that I pay for my own lease. So I turned to the FoxPro for entertainment and I must say it was a blast. Ended up shooting 3 coyotes and a big female cat. Annnnnd.....I might have ground checked a big boar too, just as a target of opportunity.







Thanks for viewing

I have several sequences that I use, but this weekend Nutty Nuthatch was like the Pied Piper. Every animal was killed during that 6 minute session. Im a big fan of bird sounds, I believe a lot of predators are educated on rabbit distress sounds so I try to throw something different at them.

and if you're not using FOXBANG you're missing opportunities on follow up shots if needed but also multiple kills, don't drop one and immediately get up, stay in the saddle and keep calling with that pup distress. I guarantee you will see more yotes, maybe not every time but it will happen.

Oooooooh.....you lost my attention on the critters when I saw the fluted matte black barreled varmint gun. Maybe a Rem 700 22-250 or 223?.. Or is that stainless in a shadow?

I'm also interested in getting an e-caller. Not sure exactly which model is the best value for an entry level unit.

I hammer the Fox with the nutty nuthatch but have never been able to call a coyote with it. I do not have the foxbang function on mine but I️ will start to follow up with the pup distress sound afterwards manually.

For those asking about the caller that model is the Hellfire and is a couple years old. I believe it is now called the Banshee, which is the same thing with a better remote. They can be had for about 300.00. They have some smaller units that are cheaper but itís the loudest for the money in my opinion. Iím just about due for a new one and I will be going with the Shockwave I think.

If youíre wanting to ease into it or on a budget look into Icotec e-callers Iíve been pretty impressed and I think you can get into a pretty solid unit for about 130.00.

I've been wanting to get into predator hunting this year since seeing a lot of coyotes on our lease and less and less does (plus my son thats 4 loves shooting them ever since I shot one a couple weeks ago) . I'm going to start googling it and reading up on it, I tired this last weekend with a bluetooth speaker I have for music and some calls on an app on my phone but no luck. If anyone wants to share some advice for sounds to download and what kind of sequences to do, I would greatly appreciate it. Maybe what things are must haves. Thanks in advance. To the OP that looks like a dang fun weekend.

I'm 14 miles east of Seymour and I will charge up the batteries on the Fox Pro and get after it the second week of Jan, we see them more frequent than we would like. Didn't know they liked to eat corn! We killed 118 last year on a helicopter hunt but you wouldn't even know it today.
