But the sounds you get depend on where and who you get them from too. So $200 might not be so bad if you get all of the sounds you want. Just saying.

Shipping was 9.95...I'm going to test it Saturday by work since I'm working.. we have a wildlife protected area and I've seen a couple of well fed dog adults walking around. Can't ever shoot them and I doubt they're call wise yet but should be fun just to see what happens.

Couldn't go out ended up having a crisis at work. I think I'll just head out to my friend's ranch when I can and really give it a go.

I got a Spitfire coming direct from FoxPro and got almost the same load minus 6 calls that got replaced with turkey calls. I am getting another SD chip and programming another set of 24 calls. It has plenty of undistorted volume this is clearly a best bang for the buck caller. In the Cabela's store here in St. louis this weekend we were lucky enough to have the Spitfire, the Fury, a Prarie Blaster, and a Primos remote caller, a Western Rivers remote caller, and a Johnny Stweart Attractor all demo'd. When the new FoxPro's were tested smiles went to the crowds faces. Two things were intuitively obvious. The FoxPro's have a lot better speakers, sound quality, crispness and volume. I always had heard that but never had them used side-by-side. As importantly, the difference between the new generation of remote FoxPro transmitters and all of the other calls were huge. The Spitfire worked all of the way across the large Cabela's store we have as did the Blaster and the Fury. The others were a real let down and there was a lot of transmitter pointing and swinging going on to no avail. The cheap Johnny Stewart did better than the others but it had terrible distortion problems. There are also big differences in volumes and the Prarie Blaster was very impressive but also heavy with 8 D cells not to mention the $700. If I lived where there were big open areas I might have to save my pennies for the PB. Who else but Cabela's would demo all of the calls like that. They may be a little pricey but what a great store.

My Spitfire came today and the calls loaded were the same as daveinwoodland above except for the last 4 that are turkey hen calls. I have some turkeys are just starting to gobble behind my house in the woods so I will try it out tonight. The cats love it - especially the bobcat in heat and the fox screams.
