So I recently purchased a Foxpro wildfire and took it out yesterday, here is my experience with it after about dozen stands.This thing is smaller and lighter than I expected, easy to carry. Caller uses 4 AA batteries and remote uses one 9 V battery. Plenty of volume for where I hunt in my opinion, and you have option to connect an external speaker if needed. Remote range is more than enough, I usually put caller within 50 yards and itís well within remoteís range.Caller comes with 35 rounds from Foxpro, Sounds are stored on a removable micro sd card, but you can easily re-program it on your PC with a micro sd card reader (less than $10 may be) and the foxpro programming utility which can be downloaded from foxpro website for free. After you done with sd card, transmitting the new sounds list to the remote is even easier, connecting the remote to the caller with the cable comes with the caller and it takes less than 30 seconds. The 1GB micro sd card comes with the caller actually can store more than 35 sounds, itís just the remote can only display and play the first 35 sounds. You can use a couple of micro sd cards for different group of sounds if you like, and easily transmit to the caller on the field. 35 sounds are more than enough in my opinion.If there is one thing that I wish this caller can be made better, that is the text size on the remote. Itís rather smaller. You can change the text to a bigger size but only the sound number will be displayed, not the sound name. Overall, Iím happy with the purchase. Hope this litter review will help you make a better choice when you purchase your next e-caller.
