I think this poll should be "who doesn't use an electronic caller" lol. I don't read too many posts anymore that don't start off "I placed the caller". I'm one to talk though as I recently got my very own e-caller :lol: I still like using hand calls but I will say them remote e-callers sure make things easier for a solo hunter. I made a few stands when I got it....first stand.8ac1fb40.jpg

I have an f-x 5. I dont use it that often. i think if you have alot of coyotes they work great. I think that they are a great tool to suppliment your mouth calls. Just my opinion.

No e-callers for me just seems like anyone can sit down push a button and wait to pull the trigger....Id rather use my hand calls and call nothing in all day(which has not happend in a looong time) then use some call that some guy sat down in front of a machine and hit record button and recorded a sound that i can make myself... but hay who can blame him with all the lazy Americans now I would laugh my azz off all the way to the bank too!!! just my two cents but to all there own :D:blink:

I use a mix of ecallers and hand callers. Also, I use the Predator Supreme decoy (not Wayne as I don't have feathers on it yet). My hand calls are used with the ecaller so that I can create different noises at the same time. Helps to tell a story when calling.Youngster - I thought you tested your ecaller when you were fishing at Pyramid lake just the other day?Darren

RayGun, I think you and Frank H. were making cassette e-callers and remotes before they ever came out to the public. They had the 45 record players and even 8 track e-players in the 60s and 70s but not cassettes.I don't know who made it, but I remember the "Coyote Coffin" back in the 70s. It was a remote e-caller in a ammo box powered by some C battiers as I remember. Do I use remot e-callers, hell yes. You blow on a hand call long enough and you'll probably change your mind too. :blink:

i used my 4 month old boy once, the lil woman didnt care for that too much though. im tempted to get an electronic rig one day, but for now the hand call is nuff and easy to tote.

I've been doing this for 20+ years, with mouth call only, and I get alot of satisfaction knowing I called the critter in with my skill and abillity. I've gone with guys that use E-callers, and to me it's just not the same,are we going to see remote control guns on the market next? ,,,300wsm

Those e-callers work and work well but I still like calling them in and wacking them using my own calls I make. After having hunted over e-callers from back when Johnny Stewart had the old 45 records up to an FX3 I still derive greater satisfaction knowing I coaxed them in with just my mouth calls or lip squeeks. But you can't arque with success and those e-callers will call them in. A lot of contest guys use them I know...Walt

I have a Minaska Ultimate One. It's been great so far and has a built-in decoy. It has the volume to get out there if I need it. Sometimes I start off with mouth calls and then let the electronic caller take over.

Who really cares...Hand call vs e-caller. Go out there and enjoy what God gave you.

If I have a really smart coyote that I am trying to kill I prefer the hand calls . the only advantage i see to electronic call is that you change the situation from calling them to YOU ,to setting up an ambush. i prefer my sounds on the e-calers ,but still not as good as the old stand-by hand calls.

I use both.. in a couple of instances they would respond to hand calls, and not the Caller.. I think both are very useful tools..

If you're happy with it that's great. But those things are way over priced for my taste. Model KAS-2030 $849.00. This price includes the remote control wildlife caller and 32 (studio grade) wildlife sounds of your choice. You go broke buying from their sound library. Additional sounds cost $33.00 per sound and you can't add any of your own sounds to the library! Of course I would never drive a real Hummer either because it's an over priced Jeep. They supposedly have excellent sound quality but if that's what it took to get coyotes then how are people with a hand call doing so well? I've heard the owner of the company isn't very well liked in the predator hunting community either. As he was originally from North Carolina I know coyotes aren't that thick there. I hear their customer service sucks too. Man I don't mean to trash your caller but customer service and a down to earth price mean so much more to most people. This review went badly sorry. :eck05:

Yeah it sure is pricy. The WT don't call critters any better then a FoxPro, Minaska or a JS caller or even an old 8 track. Bill Martz on the internet said his caller would out call 5 to 1 the amount of animals any caller on the market would. He was challenged many time on that statement and never responded because he knew he couldn't. Yep, the expert predator caller from North Carolina meets his match. He found some real predator callers from out west.Mr. Martz sent my hunting partner and I one of his callers to field test it for him, we thought that was nice of him. We tried it out a few times and thought the caller was to bulky, but it would work just fine. Since that time he has made the caller smaller and has the best sound library in the business. But his caller is not worth that kind of money, unless your rich.Government hunters ( ADC ) usually trap, poision or shoot coyotes from the air, most do not use predator calling as a major tool of the trade, they have better ways, how do I know that? Just take my word for it. Like I said before, just go hunting, who cares about what's best..............I just had to say something about the WT though lol.

No, that was $33.00 a sound. :signgreatreport3kg: And Danny, thanks for Bill's last name I knew it started with an M but I couldn't remember it to save my live.
