Foxpro VS Wildlife Tech

Having trouble picking one of these E callers. I know both have great reviews. (foxpro fury vs wildlife tech ma21) for calling yotes and bobcats.

Has anyone owned both of these calls or at least had some experience with both? Most important for me is sound quality, best coyote vocals, true cold weather warrior and overall ruggedness. Good chunck of money being spent here and just wanting some input. Not trying to start a ******* match. My 4 year old son would win that

Thanks!

Re: Foxpro VS Wildlife Tech

When it comes to sound quality and range the WT wins hands down, if you want cool features and easy sound changes then Fox Pro. We run the older unit but I guess the new on blows it's doors of which is hard to believe. A lot of the sounds come from this area, some of the videos are shot in sight of my window

I know of about a half dozen guys with the WT and all of them sold of Fox Pro's.

Re: Foxpro VS Wildlife Tech

Boy did you just kick over a hornets nest. There seems to be diehards in both camps. Both are great units. WT used to have the edge on technology and sound, but that has all but disappeared with the newer models from Foxpro. I have hunted over a couple of the newer Foxpros and they are excellent. I ended up getting one of the older "K" models from WT. It wasn't that I felt it was better, but WT seemed to have more variety of digital sounds and I was able to work a better deal on price.

Re: Foxpro VS Wildlife Tech

I know you didnt ask about the FP CS-24, but I have been extremly happy with mine. Ive never used a WT, but never even gave it a thought. You asked about quality of sound, cold weather, and rugedness. The CS 24 excells in all of these departments for me, and from most reviews I've read. I am definately not the cold weather tester. i have never used mine in anything below freezing. I'm sure the WT callers are great, but I have been more than satisfied with my CS-24.

Re: Foxpro VS Wildlife Tech

One question to ask is what is popular in your area, if there are mostly FX then go WT and if the opposite then get the FX. You can call coyotes with poor sounds if they aren't what they've heard before, if you beat the same dead horse you don't get the fur. I'm going to have to make a big change I think this year due to a group of guys abusing the WT. I may have to resurrect the hand calls or just spot and stalk in my area this year or pull out the #3 Monties

Re: Foxpro VS Wildlife Tech

I have been only using mouth calls. I hunt a lot of private land where I am the only guy out calling. ( the gov. trapper has had to come out a couple times over the years, so he used one im sure) Im thinking both would be equal there...

I don't hunt that kinda good stuff Both will likely do good, the sound clarity and sounds over all are better with the WT, a good example is if you turn up the volume you don't loose call quality but you start hearing subtle sounds like quite growls after a bark or breathing. I call a lot with the volume way up here to beat the wind and the WT can get you more range. If you don't need big volume the clarity isn't as big an issue, I do like the way you can play with sounds with the FX and program a series, fade in and out, Fox Bang would be very cool!!! I'm fairly well spit on it!
