I use a Primos Rabbit distress mostly and it works great.

The first rabbit I shot at 8 years old I wounded, the resulting “cry” was horrible and I cried too. The imprint of the sound on my memory has made me very successful with this call.

I have an iotec gc320 too.

We used to do that with Murry Burnham cassette's. He took us out on his property near marble falls in the early 90's. Great guy.

I would call the guys at all predator calls. They will get you fixed up and will load sounds based on your hunting conditions and what you are hunting. Wished this is what I did but I was unaware of them when I bought mine. I think I have an inferno. Works great for me but I got a bunch of sounds on there that I never use and I wish I had some different ones on there.

How do you like the ICOtec? I just picked up the GC500 as it is on sale at MidwayUSA and saw it as a cost friendly alternative to the foxpro.

Latest greatest by far is the Lucky Duck line of calls. Heard great things. I had a FoxPro and it was ok. I'm currently running a Primos Alpha Dogg and like it a lot. A lot better than the FoxPro i had.

I would agree with latest but not greatest (Made in China). They are new and everyone wants the new thing.

Foxpro is tried and true and always been a big supporter of hunting (Made in USA as well).

Foxpro is the gold standard. Lucky Duck is gaining followers and Icotech as well. I’ve run Foxpros for the last 12yrs and had very good luck with them.

I've got a FoxPro CS24C. It's pretty handy. Mr. Gary Roberson (owner of Burnham Brothers) is on here. They make a pretty excellent product as well.

I have a mini-blaster that was given to me by a game warden relative of theirs that's called many a critter. I like it cause its small and takes little air

What I've been doing lately is just using my phone with my Bluetooth speaker
there's free app to get sounds from and I have the hog pro app that has a lot of hog calls on it haven't tried that one yet.
Best thing if you or your kids have a speaker its free !
