    I just bought a Western Rivers Predator Stalker and a Predator Deceptor. The stalker (a caller)fits on top of the Deceptor (motion stake) and is supposed to run on one 9 volt battery. It has 3 - 9 volt plugs and I can't figure out how they go together. If I plug in 2 batteries into the stalker it over heats. Anyone that can help me? I have attached a picture of the set up.
    Thanks

    Just guessing here but I'd say you plug the connecter from the stake into one of the connecters from the call and plug a battery to the other connecter from the call.

    I tried that and it works somewhat but there isn't enough power for the both of them. it moves real slow.
    Thanks for trying to help.

    What did the company tell you when you called them?

    They never emailed or called back. Maybe their still trying to figure out how they did it?
    Thanks,

    Well, this makes it simple. I know exactly what I am NOT going to buy in the future.

    Sorry I couldn't be of some help. I'm just going to make my own using a wild weasle pet toy and mounting the parts on a wire post. It doesn't work on sound. But, from what I've seen they work really well.

    Write me and tell me how it works. I haven't had a chance to use mine yet and am getting anxious to get out there.
