Well, Fedex just left and my new Foxpro FX3 is here! Right in time for my birthday. I was surfing the net last week from my hotel room in Ohio, lamenting the cost of Foxpro's, and how much I'd like to have one for my South Dakota trip in September. On a whim I clicked "shopping" on the Google tool bar and a big list of Foxpro FX3's came up for sale - one of them for $200! Yep - some poor soul had pawned a brand new FX3, and Topdollar pawn had it up on the net - 7 day return guaranteed. I jumped right on it.So I put the batteries in - set it on the couch and hit the send button on the remote and a doe estrus bleat starts up. Not two seconds later who should come running into the livingroom to check out the call - the wife's cat! Well - the Foxpro works! A quick flip to channel 04 - Coyote Locator sent the cat running for cover! OH I wish I had the camera ready!I'm gonna like this... Maybe I'll get a chance to head out to Jacumba when I'm back in two weeks.

Great buy man that's a great deal. That most have been funny playing with the cat like that. This Halloween you should have a blast with it.I need one to.I let some people have excess to fish the river and I thought it would be funny to crank out some lion screams one of these days.

Newbie newbie newbie <shakes head> The cat is soooo beginner..... You must aspire to reach the golden hieghts of scaring PEOPLE :signbummer8tl: Yes Im talking your neighbors, greenies who dare to go camping with you... The Mother in Law.... your wifes sister or that daughters boyfriend you just cant stand... Hide that bugger in the bushes, set it up outside of camp on the way to the bathroom area :good: Just for kicks alone that was well worth the money LOL Get creative and let the fun begin... BTW it works great for animals too :) GRATS!!!

That is a super good deal on a used FX3..By the way, Bobcat in Heat under the sink while the mother in law is doing her make up is my personal favorite.

That's for sure! I use mine on my neighbors guests every party they have. It's great when they're leaving and have had a few drinks. :signbummer8tl:

Man, some of you guys & gal beat me to it... and too funny too! Baja, congrats on your excellent steal... I mean purchase! Uh, btw, can I go with you to S. Dakota? I've been agonizing for the last couple yrs or so about going there or Wyoming. Wyoming is closer of course.Anyway, good luck on all your (foxpro) hunts and keep us posted.Frank

Ohhhhhh It is soooo fun... Late at night sitting in camp when everyone is telling hunting stories.. hit that remote on the mountain lion scream... :) Best time to do it is when someone heads off into the dark to take a pee :) Yes It will make grown men scream like a little girl :)

Halloween is my favorite with the calls. Just put it in a bush somewhere in the front yard and play kitten distress really low. It draws Mom's and small children like a magnet. Have one of your presets on Mt. Lion or Bobcat screams at max volume and punch it as they investigate the kittens.. Pig in distress works just as well.Then record the screams and use them for your haunted house next year....I'm lucky enough to have 5 callers at my disposal so the fun gets turned up a notch..
