Default Calling boars

A good while back there was a thread on calling hogs. Someone asked about boars. I've been tinkering with calling boars only for some time. here is a video of boars only being called.

Cool video. Will the sounds work on a FoxPro e-caller or do you have to buy a convergent unit to use them?

You buy the app from Convergent for 5.00 (I think) and you can use it on any bluetooth speaker. I bought the app a while back and...... for 6.50 you can buy a bag of corn

I was a nay sayer until we were calling coyotes in a field, and a 3 legged boar came full sprint to the call. It was pretty crazy

We were using some sort of rabbit/distress call.

For foxpro and other mp3 callers I downloaded the app, then played the sounds through my truck speakers and used a recording app on another iPhone to record the sound files and put them on my foxpro

The sound quality is degraded seriously through some calls and even some high quality bluetooth speakers. But it appears that it still works on some level I've had some cool stories shared with me. Most eventually bought the other speaker for quality of sounds.

For sure, the speakers lack bass to provide the low guttural sounds that are native to your sounds. But if you gotta use what you have and/or can’t afford a convergent, it mejor que nada!

Weird. Me neither. They show up when you quote them though. @Michael what’s wrong with YT links on this site?

When I posted YT link it gave a disclaimer of sorts and the links didn't show. however if I just post the link they stay. Just not as a youtube thumbnail.

especially with the new Boar Specific sounds the bass sounds are very important. Believe it or not a lot of guys just use their truck or UTV speakers, it's in credible to see hogs come charging in to a truck in the daytime. I've experimented with it some as well just to see how they would react once up close. I've had them in the daytime less than 15 yards from the truck and act like it wasn't there. One guy sent me video of him on a farm to market road with hogs all around his truck, daytime. I enjoy seeing all the pics and stories from successful hunts. send them to me on my facebook page please.

I bought the app and used my Bose Bluetooth speaker. Called in six hogs first time out. Was my youngest sons first time behind the gun. He missed but he sure ready for round two.
Great calls imo.

for many years I said if I ever figured out how to consistently call hogs I'd quit calling coyotes. Okay so I just lied a little, just a little though. LOL

Very neat! Might have to try on public land here in Tx. So green out and the pigs are staying in the thick thick. No bow shots.

they were designed to sound the best on The Bullet HP from convergent hunting solutions. Also the range is way longer than traditional bluetooth speakers. Their predator sounds are free except for the tournament series which I created.
