I don't have one to sell but you can get them at bass pro or cabelas.

If you need one quick go to Freds in Waldorf or drive up to Bass pro shops.

I currently have two different types, one is a Johny Stewart and the other is a FX3 Fox Pro.

Very happy with both, the Fox Pro was more exensive but it is also wireless and holds more calls

Just google predator hunting and you can find multiple sites selling calls.

Hi there! Check out my new website. I have several different electronic calls for sale. Also, a promotion going on for hunt only members. I personally have the Johnny Stewart wired caller and I am not that impressed. The sounds are good, but I feel to close to the call itself. I just started going for yotes last year. No luck but I am a quick study.

It is nice to keep a little distance between yourself and the call but not a requirement.

Having the caller right next to you while fox hunting can make things pretty interesting sometimes because grey fox come running in a lot of times and having a fox come out of the dark and about blast wright over top of you is exciting.

I had a slow season last year but plan on making up for that this coming season.

No kidding, i appreciate that bit of knowledge. I was also wondering how much to actually use the call? Like after you call the first call, how often and how loud should you go? Sometimes I think that was part of my problem, just not really understanding the basic stuff cause I am a rookie at this! Growing up we never hunted the yotes, cause there wasn't any but over the last 25 years they have gotten so populated they actually run the season from October all the way until March. Appreciate the advise so far. Thanks

From what I understand coyotes are a little different in that you really want to learn how they communicate between each other. So your more producing a sequence of calls and then maybe pausing for a bit.

Where as with fox, many times I just call continuously for about 15 min. and then move to the next spot.

I may switch up the call i'm using during this time, for example starting with fox pup distress then switching to rabbitt distress, rodent distress or even fox fight.

If fox are going to respond they tend to do this rather quickly. They will typically come in within 10mins or less. I've actually had times where I turn the caller on hit the light and bam, they he was.

Coyotes will sometimes take a little more time depending on how call shy they are and Bobcats can take up to 45mins or so.

This is interesting as I was trying to use the same approach for both. Do you use scent blocker like with deer or not?
It is strange to hunt an animal as smart as a dog! They can sort of think piratically I think

That's good to know to. So after I am blasting that call for 15-20 minutes I might as well move on right? How far do you move? I mean I figure they can hear that call for quite a ways.

How far to move really depends on how much property you have access to, the more the marrier. I would say at least 300-400 yards or more unless its really windy. Maybe even further for yotes.

15-20mins is fine, if you haven't got a response move on. I have hunted longer but my experience with fox says,if their not there in 15mins move.

Yes you can use scent blocker, I don't personally but I think anyting can help especially for yotes. The wind is a big factor when predator hunting, maybe not as much for fox as coyotes but if you think about it, they use their nose for just about everything.
