My buddy has a spitfire that we use along with mouth calling. Seems to be a good unit so far, but we've only tried it a few times. It's becoming our go-to when they won't respond to any of our mouth calls.

Re: Need some advice

My setup is a fox pro wildfire and a mojo critter. I've even had the critter attacked before I turned on the call. To this point I haven't needed any additional sounds but they can be easily downloaded. I also mix in some hand calls as well. I don't know how you could go wrong with that setup. Just remember that the deeper that you get into predator hunting you'll always be wanting the bigger and better mouse trap.

+++ I agree 100%. The FoxPro will definitely bring them in, but for best results use it in the same way as you would a mouth call. What I mean is don't let it just keep going and going. Shut it off in between calling intervals for a couple of minutes on lower volume. Then after a couple of times doing that you SCRAMBLE call for 45 seconds at high volume. There is a technique for using an e-caller too. The mojo critter is awesome, because once they see it, you almost can't do any wrong.

Good hunting!

Forgot to mention the bullet. For my 223 the Vmax was the most accurate that I have used. but I only have a 16" barrel on my AR so couldn't get the speed to even blow apart a p-dog. I have nice exit wounds with Sierra 55gr. varminters.

Re: Need some advice

I use the same setup (16" Ar, Foxpro Spitfire and Mojo), I don't consider myself a expert by any means but I do love all 3 and they work better than anything else I have tried. The only thing I would change is the spitfire seems to lack volume in those wide open areas. At least it seems quiet to me but twice it brought in coyotes from over a mile away. If you can spare the money I think one of the more expensive foxpros would get you the extra volume and would be worth the money on those windy days. That being said the spitfire gives you a lot for your dollar.
