Re: Primos Alpha Dog E-caller - likes & dislikes?

I do have a question about the Primos decoys, the Alpha Dog caller does have a output jack for activating a decoy. But I have been studying the published documentation on the Primos decoys and I do not see a input jack being mentioned for external control by a Alpha Dog. There is a poorly worded statement that says "for best results use with Primos Aplha Dog or Turbo Dog predator calls." Wondering if the Primos decoys actually have an external control jack on them?

Thanks,

Ya. My problem is if they did not preload a primary extreme cold weather prey species call, then perhaps the caller won't work well at 40 below. Or even 30 below. We've already had 30 below and its just getting into Nov. . Trapping season isn't even open yet except on coyote. . We can use a light at night during trapping season on furbearers. Fox Pro comes pre loaded with snow shoe hare. And they have a good reputation in the cold.

I will likewise confirm that a portion of the resonances good to go on e-inquisitors are tricky to double with mouth calls.
I feel a great place to begin is with two coyotes. How do you murder two coyotes?

The sounds are very good they can be to loud at times especially on calm days even in the sand hills or on the open plain. i think it may be a little heavy and somewhat bulky when you carry for some distances. usb works great easy to use and the whole machine is easy to use after a little use. You can put in your favorite sounds in a sequece you prefer or use the professional calls and sit back and get ready. I still say keep the sounds down unless it real windy. You can even learn to mouth call just listening to randy anderson call.

Not trying to bash the Alpha Dog. But, the foxpro wildfire is just as loud, better warranty, better CS and built here in the USA. You can add an external speaker for $50 if you need more volume. Allpredatorcalls.com will but 35 sounds of your choice, don't need anymore than that IMHO.

You can add extra speaker to alpha dogg but who cares if you have to play your caller that loud it must be really windy or there are no coyotes and anyway what can you tell me about open reed calls I have been using them for 35 years with real good succes but I won,t mention any names their probably no good. wow
