Welcome to the forums! I'm also a PA guy. Im from the SW part of the state. In my area the hunting is ridiculously tough but it is possible. I've only ever called up a yote 1 time in maybe 150+ stands. Foxes are abundant in my area though and I've had decent success with them. IMO stay away from some of the sounds that come standard on the FoxPros. They are well overused. Try new things and find out your own secrets of predator hunting. good luck and have fun!

You must have a furtakers license here in Pa to hunt fox. Also there is a season on them, from the middle of October to the middle of February.
