Electronic Calls

Discussion in 'Hunting, Fishing & Camping' started by vafish, May 17, 2010.

  1. Any of you using them for predator calling?

    What do you got?

    How do they work?

    This past Friday night I used the instructions on Varmint Al's web page to build an electronic caller. Quite impressed with the sound, won't get a chance to test it until the weekend.

    I'd post pictures, but since I used the same parts list as Al mine looks identical to his, well except for the MP3 player, I had an old one laying around.

    I downloaded Al's MP3's and found some others on the web.

    I did use it to wake up my daughter Saturday morning. Nothing like the waking up to the sound of a dying rabbit on full volume. It drove the dogs nuts. They were stuffing their noses inside the speaker horn trying to figure out what was making the noise.

  2. I use a johnny stewart preymaster, came with 3 cards, and you can buy many more, for pigs or crows or whatever you want to hunt. I absolutely love mine. It can play 2 sounds at once, and can be very loud or quiet. I have a ten foot and a fifty foot cable, but now, for 100 dollars more, you can buy a wireless version. They work excellent. That's very kool you made your own. Make sure u get a bird call too, bobcats love that one. Coyotes come nearly every time I use it, as long as we are doing our part, wind, camo, movement, etc.

    Put it about 30 yards away from you at 2 o'clock. Don't play it too loud, if you can hear it from 100 yards away, it is too loud. A coyote will hear that at a mile. Unless you have a remote, it should have about a minute of silence before it starts, so you can set it up and get settled. Sit still and observe, most coyotes will come in between 6 and 12 minutes.
  4. Thanks for the advice. I would have played it as loud as I could without distortion.

    On Varmint Al's web site he as some call sequences that have 2 mins of silence to begin with so you can start the caller and move away to your blind.

    i went out hunting for my first time that sunday and monday.

    we say 1 coyote on our way out on Monday, we quickly pulled over and tried calling it. no luck.
    got a jackrabbit though. LOL

    i just ordered the speaker to make that same electronic caller. i actually had the amp and wiring already. im using my ipod for the sound.

    i hope it turns out well and that i get some coyote soon.
