    So what are you using, electronic or old school call? Myself I have a old lohman "circe" Ive had for years, used to carry it when dove hunting. The yotes would stalk the sheep at a alfalfa farm I used to hunt in Calif, just carried a few slugs in my pocket back then. Now Im really getting into yotes and got the "Primo" Hot Dog, Little Dog, Catnip and Ki Yi.

    Don't have a call yet. But planning on getting one. Which one do you like best and and which are most user friendly short of the electronic ones.

    My favorite for howls, Ki-Yi, and barks by far is the Lil' Dog by primos. the sounds you can get with that are awesome. my favorite for distress sounds (mainly rabbit) is a Flextone Rabbit Call. Its got a rubber body on it and the flexing makes some really convincing sounds. called in a few dogs with it. I cant wait till after deer season so i can coyote hunt. I like it more than deer haha o and i hate electronic calls. not enough volume and not as fun. more of a challenge with mouth calls. cant wait to get my new Savge .243 for coyote either:wink:

    Sounds like a Ki Yi by Primo. I practice in my truck on my way to work. The neighbors like me better that way. LOL

    I have several hand calls and 2 electronic calls. I like and use them all. I recently upgraded from the Johnny Stewart Preymaster to the new Preymaster PM-4 wireless. I haven't used it much yet but I love the way the remote works with out messing with wires on a speaker. I had a lot of good luck with the old Preymaster and had a lot of sounds for it that also fit in the new caller. Seemed like a logical upgrade. My hand calls are a Herbs Howler, Anderson Hot Dog, Burnham, Circe, Tally Ho, Faulks, Johnny Stewart and a few others probably laying around somewhere (I have been at this a long time). You can't beat a hand call for being easy to carry and use and its simplisity. But its also really nice to use the remote speaker to keep the predators attention off the hunter. Its not uncommon for me to start with a hand call and after the first minute or so to switch to the remote so when they come in they arn't looking for me.
