I have more success when using hand calls for my distress sounds. I do take along the Foxpro for some vocal mixes and some other sounds I just canít do with hand calls. I called and killed my first ever using hand calls and a simple old Remington 700 in .222. I got the disease and got a foxpro, bought a bunch of rifles in calibers that all start with .22, added a lot of really nice custom hand calls from makers here, upgraded foxpro models, and bought a bunch of other gear I couldíve done just fine without. I still use my e call, but all I truly need is my simple .222 and some hand calls, just like when I connected on my first one. But itís all fun and having a variety of rifles and custom calls isnít necessarily a bad thing.
