    Default What calls to load on FoxPro?

    I'm looking at an entry level FoxPro and have choices to make on what calls to load. I've attached the link to their sample sounds. Here's what I would like to know...
    What's on your "must have" list?
    Don't waste your time list?
    and my favorite..."You'd be surprised, but this really worked well" list.

    Thanks all,

    Wish i could help you more but snowshoe and mouse is what we have used, but we are still learning as well. Good luck, i have heard some of the other distress calls can works certain times of the year.

    I figured the snowshoe, wolf, and fox calls, and you KNOW the Titmouse is going on there, but are so many 'yote sounds I need to weed some of them out. Plus, wondering if the fawn in distress would bring in the dogs or bigger (brown) predator?

    Also saw there were many, many bird calls on there. What the hell does a "worried woodpecker" call bring in???

    More worried woodpeckers! lol. Got my new fox pro CS. Had a 100 calls put on it. I got all the fox, coyote, wolf, and raven and magpie calls. I also got all the rabbit and vole calls. You just never know what's going to work from one day or one hour to the next. Just playing around with it on the deck called in raven and magpi's, along with one red headed woodpecker that had been hanging around the lodge all fall.
    It's kinda like fishing.. you never know which 'lure' is going to work each time. Rabbit (snoshoe and cottontail) seem to be the most consistant, at least for me, so far. Messed with calling wolves during moose season, just with our mouth, howling, and were able to call in two within 600 yards. If you have the ability, just get all the calls associated with anything that lives in your area and have fun.

    Have had great success with the C23. we use it to locate them along with the locator howls...they love most of the female ones. I have never used any birds up in AK..did down south..but seems the JR is key for bears fox etc...not sure why..but have had them really get close with that one in the spring.

    For bears nothing... never had too. to be honest..they give you way to many options and it can be confusing at times with all that info.. I tried the first year with it..(4 years ago)..and got lucky with a black bear at about 15ft before we shot it..had browns come running in as well. Just be prepared as discussed on the forum many times with calling...they are coming in to kill and eat..be prepared and have a back up buddy ready as well. Only had one come in slow..

    Have used it after we spotted them as well way up on the ridge to pull them down. it has worked for that as well if interested.
