    I am in the market for a electronic caller. Thinking about the Fox Pro FX3 or should I step it up to the TX-500? Or is there another brand out there better.

    Nothing wrong with the Fox Pro but I decided to go with Wildlife Technologies 2030MS. Good call with excellent sounds. I had a Minaska M1 prior to that which was also great. Buy from the top three and you wont go wrong.

    Last Saturday I had three run in. Only one made it out alive.

    New here , but I have killed a bunch of yotes and several bobcats in the past few years . My percentage went way up when I started using a decoy with a wireless caller. If I had the $ I would make sure I bought a wireless caller that had a port to use a decoy by remote also . This will put all the attention 100 yards or more away from you and gives you a chip shot . I killed my largest cat this year , 40 inches from tip of nose to tip of tail and little over 40 lbs .
    Good luck on them , youll love it .

    Jasone, I got a FX3 recently, and have only used it on one trip for turkeys. I haven't seen or used a 500, but am very happy with the FX3. I wouldn't spend the extra money on the 500, but would invest it in the SP-8 speaker for the big animal calls. The FX3 remote will control the Foxpro Jack-in-the-box also. I agree with Car-ver, it seems like the decoy could seal the deal on a wary predator.

    I am also impressed with Foxpro's customer service. I like that they are made in America, too.

    Wade, good looking pair of retired fawn killers.

    Good hunting, Tom

    I would go with the Wildlife Technologies also. That one has by far the best sound quality available. Just my 2 cents.

    I have not yet tried the WT call. But i have used many different models of the Fox pro.

    IMHO judging from what i have used the FX-3 is an exellent choice!
