-------------------------------Minaska calls are now "MAD" calls, by the decoy maker Flambeau.
I really like my foxpro. My buddy bought a minaska at the same time that they were bought by PLANO(I think it was Plano, they were definately bought out), he waited a long time to get his caller and wasn''t thrilled with the service. It could have just been because they were making a transition but who knows. I do know that you can't go wrong with a foxpro.

I was thinking about that model but I read that it only takes four AA batteries. I can't imagine it lasting for six hours of non-stop crow calling. If it was going to be used just for predator hunting that is definitely the one I would get. Can you plug it to an external power source to make it play for longer periods of time?
Give the Fox Pro Spitfire a look. For 200 bucks you get 24 sounds of your choice and mine works great and has called in at least 20 Coyotes and 2 Bobcats and i have not had it a year yet.

Those eastern coyotes called Tim in.
...and just so you know Tim Lewis moved back East. He moved several months ago.

-------------------------------------------Jim,I would love to see some photos of the patterns you are getting at 100 yards. I have never yet seen any choke/load combo that delivers anything even close to "sure kill" patterns on coyotes at 100 yards. Maybe yours will be the very first.
Call Tim Lewis. Foxpro rep in this area, and see if he can find one used someone's trying to sell cheap. I have the Foxpro 416b with 16 sounds and remote and it works just fine. You don't NEED 500 sounds to be successful. You probably only need a handful of sounds that are realistic to attract them. I'm sure the Indians did just fine without their e-callers. They are nice to have but you don't have to have the top-of-the-line model to be successful. I love all the whistles and bells not to mention decoys but it's not a necessity. Our bet our most successful callers keep it very simple. KISS. Keep It Simple, Seriously. You can go to Bass Pro and pick up "Coyote Rage" and Tim and Mike will walk you through what you need. It's simple. You can wear gray pants to match standing against a tree with an earth colored plaid shirt and blend in with your environment. Don't move. You don't have to have expensive camo and ghillie suits. I know two very successful predator hunters that rely almost exclusively on the shotgun. Also, my choice of comfort. I swear by the Benelli Super Black Eagle in 3.5 " with Carlson's Dead Coyote choke and Dead Coyote shot. It works out to near the 100 yard range. See the 95 yard shot taken in "Coyote Rage I." Go out there and do it. It's a learning experience every time you go out.

The unit plus rechargeable batteries, charging cord, and shipping came out to just under $465. I had my friend put my old sounds on it and I made an external battery pack out of two six volt batteries hooked up in line with a 4 amp fuse. It works great. I couldn't take a gun with me but I ran it out at a buddys place just to test it and it brought the crows in no time. Here's a pic of the crow hunting set up. For predator hunting I'll just use the unit by itself without the extra speaker and battery pack.
How much was the firestorm??
