OK I think this should be the right picture.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target!

Thanks. Did you figure out how to post pics of your red fox? I've only ever called in one gray, but never a red.

There's a good tutorial on the Photo Gallery page:

Just go to the bottom of page 8. Makes it pretty easy.

Nice going Duck, Don't have any pheasant sounds, but that and turkey are on to do list. Not doing too well this season, but not getting out much. You got a lot more snow than me.

FYI:
FoxPro also has some "chicken in distress" sounds. I have helped to release pheasants on a preserve and especially the hens can do a lot of squawking. The chicken distress is a little deeper sounding than the pheasant distress.

I have only used pheasant sounds a few times, but haven't had any response, yet. I have seen both coyote and bobcat respond to turkey gobbles and hen turkey sounds, but so far the only things that have responded in the winter to turkey gobbles are gobblers.

Thanks Duck. I'm gonna order some sounds. I used to use a turkey call quite a bit when I first started with no luck, except during turkey season when coyotes were out of season.

Got a 36 1/2 pound male today on my 5th stand. Came into a mix of bird sounds. I'd been carrying a rifle lately because of hangups, don't you know this guy came in close thru thick stuff and I had to thread a bullet thru it at about 50 feet.

Not much of a story though. Happened quicker than any hunt I've been on. I must have set up right on top of her because she came in within 30 seconds of hand calling. Shot her at 22 yards in some thick young pines. She's a small one maybe 12 lbs but big or small, a first is a first!! Called her in with one of Catwhacker's calls!

Got a late start this morning, but headed for a WMA that holds deer late in the year and figured I'd combine calling and antler hunting. sure enough mid morning I saw about 5 or 6 flags bouncing away, and I could even smell them, so set up for about half an hour of fawn distress. No takers , then moved on but switched to vocals and bird sounds after I found fresh bear tracks. Had one coyote respond, but a tough , twisting, steep uphill shot and missed. No yote and no antlers, but found a nice beech grove with lots of scratched up trees to check out next fall.

At least you called one in, that provided some action.

I've been keeping my eye out for sheds, nothing yet.
