Need Help with Choosing an Electronic Caller

I'm looking into purchasing an electronic caller before the winter. There are so many out there, I don't know where to start. What are some of the brands and models you guys use or would recommend?

I was looking at some of the FoxPros. They seem nice, but are they really worth the money?

I'm in the northern woods like you. I love my spitfire. It's plenty loud.

So far I think I'm leaning towards the Foxpro Firestorm. Looking at all the features, it seems to have a lot to offer. If I don't go with that model, then it will be the Spitfire.

Re: Need Help with Choosing an Electronic Caller

I've used a foxpro the last 3 seasons, I have the older 416B model. My only knock on it is the very limited range of the remote. I understand I can get this updated, got to get around to that.

Otherwise, I'm very happy with it! Very easy to download new sounds.

FR3,,
What kind of remote distance can you get line of site? The Spitfire looks like a good buy except I don't think it has the Foxbang which is a great feature.

Re: Need Help with Choosing an Electronic Caller

I have a FoxPro Fury. It works very well. It comes with 100 calls and seems to be all I need. My success rate is very good with it. A bit pricey , but you only cry once and they seem to hold their value well. Like other high quality equipment, a fox pro seems to sell pretty fast when advertised used.
