I hunted with a hunter who owned 1, it looked plain, built very well though, and it had very good sounds. He killed 2 fox that night, seemed those calls bring fur into the owners, lol. I have been studying calls. Good sounds and calls that bring in the game should be at the top of the list. Having a $600.00 electronic call and spending $500.00 in gas driving around not killing anything means nothing. If a $35.00 call gets me 2 coyotes in PA. and breaks in 5 months, is that better than a high dollar call that you never kill a coyote off of and spend countless nights afield and see nothing. So sounds make a difference. Johnny Stewart has good sounds also. They all have there place.

Excellent caller but there is a couple of things you need to know. Their customer service is absolutely terrible and their owner has a personality to match. Additionally their sounds, while good cannot be added to as you can a FoxPro. For the money I would stick with FoxPro a true and tested company that has served us predator callers in the utmost respect for many years.

In 2000 I was in South Dakota and a buddy asked me to go coyote hunting with him, He had an older WT caller and being I was the new guy he asked me to carry it from the truck to the first setup...well let me tell you, that thing needed wheels on it. It was very heavy and I would never get one. I have to say it did have a very clear sound to it. All we called in was a big mule deer doe. Saw her coming from about 700 yds out on a dead run. She must have thought that woodpecker distress sounded like a fawn. Anyway,I have a Fury and I wouldn't buy anything but FoxPro again.

I just checked out their web site and they have some neat sound information. I have never used one of these calls so I don't have any idea how they compare. I use FoxPro because it is our own Pennsylvania brothers and sisters, their customer service is amazing, and Mike Dillon and FoxPro has done so much to promote and protect predator hunting in PA with its support of the Pennslyvania Predator Hunters Association.

I have hunted with mostly all of them. Thanks to having friends with cash. It would not be right to say which is better, a hunter should be able to figure it out himself. How much have I called in with my call? Could I have done better with mouth calls, or as well. How much fur are trappers taking out of my calling area? If trappers are catching 15 coyotes in your core area, you should be shooting at 3 to 5. Because that 15 is only 30% or less of the coyotes in that area.I blew a simple 1 tonight, used a noise maker of a certain type .It makes the most realistic sounding rabbit you have ever got to hear and the level of a real rabbit. It was on me in seconds and came in the back door. No winding rules with that guy I guess. I should have killed 3, this year but I hunted a very limited time this year because of family obligations. I called in a super nice bobcat with a home built call I made off of a hunting site on Wednesday morning, no tag this year. Did fill last years, and called in 3 for others the past 3 years. Do not leave out mouth calls. And check with trappers if there catching a lot of fur, you should at least be seeing some of it if your trying and putting in hours. Remember there traps are out there and have a good smell to them. In this time of year when its froze for days they come to a call. Sometimes I believe mouth calls are best because they have heard many sounds. Take your call out it only takes a few nights and you know the sounds. Predators hear them year round in some areas. Use the sounds that change pitch and do not sound like a broken repeat. I will say the 2 friends have the top of the line model from each company and 1 has called in far more that have gotten killed than the other has called in just seeing eyes. They pretty much work even out west but here there is a major difference. If you are going to set in the cold, go through gas for 3 to 5 years you should have killed some animals. On these cold nights a good diaphram call can do cats, woodpecker, coyote vocals, etc. without freezeing. And no hand movement. Many have the best and never heard any of the 3 or 4 other major ecallers out there. How do you know you have the best? When guys thell me they killed 1 coyote and 2 fox in 5 years does not sound like the best. I'm no super hunter but I'm versatile and thats what you have to be to at least see predators.

Bingo! Foxpro makes a good product but everyone has them.

I have used both and there is no clear answer.Customer service is excellent at foxpro in my experience.I never had any issues with WT customer service but it is a little different.Sound quality or effectiveness is very good for both,maybe a slight edge to WT..The remotes for the foxpro are more user friendly,the WT does not have any read out on the remote so you need to write all your sounds on a card so you can remember.The range is maybe a little better on the WT.Durability is good on both.You can download new sounds on the Foxpro yourself you can't on the WT.So I quess it kind of boils down to personal choice.

I agree I say WT for the sounds and I have never heard of bad customer service from either. Hunters need to learn to use mouth calls along with both in this state to kill more fur.
