I decided to get an electronic call because I'm terrible at mouth calls. I didn't realize when I bought this caller that it doesn't have a rechargeable battery pack. You have to buy AA batteries plus two or three for the remote. I haven't taken the caller out of the packaging for two reasons: 1.) This is a $600 piece of equipment; I shouldn't need to spend $15 on batteries before every hunt and 2.) I REALLY want to like this caller. The instruction manual suggests you buy rechargeable AA batteries. Sounds good but...oh right. The $600 caller doesn't come with a DC charger even though it has a DC charger port. A DC charger is about $10 brand new. They really couldn't include one? I guess I could go buy a charging base station for rechargeable AA batteries, but I mean really...I shouldn't have to spend more money to use this tool than I already have. Long story short; I'm sure the caller works really well but it does seem exceedingly ridiculous to not equip a $600 electronic with its own rechargeable battery pack. I've been staring at this thing as it sits in my living room trying to decide if it's really worth $600. I'm leaning towards no and will most likely ship the caller back BUT I WANT TO HUNT SO BADLY. Frustrating....

I recently purchased the Fury to replace my old FX-3. The Fury comes with 100 calls, but I was able to load all of the other calls I had purchased for the FX-3 onto the Fury. I now have over 160 calls on the Fury. You can also log onto the FOXPRO website and purchase additional calls. They also have quite a large list of free calls you can download onto the Fury.
Here in Southern Indiana we have coyotes but are not over run with them. I took the Fury out for its first hunt on a snow covered Saturday afternoon. Less than 1 minute after playing the "coyote pair yip howl" sound, I had two coyotes coming in. My Tikka 22-250 dropped the first one at 205 yards. The second one did not stick around to help its buddy out and it got away. But I will be back.
You cannot go wrong with a FOXPRO call. Yes it is expensive, but the fun and excitement you will get from it will be worth the cost. You can program up to 10 call sequences. Once in the field, simply select a call sequence and let the Fury do its thing. This allows you to spend more time looking for your prey. Get one and enjoy.

Very pleased with it so far. Use has been limited to driving crows, magpies and dogs crazy, but with huge success. A crow/owl fight with the use of a decoy is guaranteed to make every crow in earshot respond immediately.
Am excited to use the call this fall on moose!
Northern buyers be prepared to purchase high quality lithium batteries though, as NiMh cells will not keep charge in colder temperatures. If foxpro could come up with a lithium power pack it would be a huge benefit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by runningo Don't be afraid.
I love the fury. I upgraded from the 416 and couldn't believe the difference in sound quality. First time out and had three grey fox running all over me. Since the first outing I have taken several predators and called in several for friends. Great sound and super volume out of the two speakers. Some of the sounds are in stereo and you can control each speaker independently creating a different sound. There are several custom series options or just take it out of the box and start using it. Great for the beginner or those more advanved in using the e-caller. Don't be afraid of the price. This could be the last caller you will ever need. Comes with 100 sounds and has room for 400 more. Foxpro didn't get their reputation for nothing.

I am looking for something for deer/moose hunting. How many deer/moose calls does it have? How long do batteries last in cold weather? Are the calls short? Like on the Foxpro demo site? Or are they 20-30 seconds or longer? Can you use one call, and repeat over and over for effect? Thanks
I do not knw exactly how many deer/moose calls Foxpro has to offer but I do know several of these sounds are on the call when you purchase it. Most deer/moose calls are shorter in length when compared to predator calls. Lets say 20 seconds compared to a full minute. But the call continues over and over until you change it or turn it off.
Yes, this would be good for Moose and Deer. See sounds: http://www.gofoxpro.com/sp/standard... Battery performance is generally diminished at extreme cold temperatures. The best batteries to use at severe temperatures are the "AA" Lithium types intended for digital cameras. The FOXPRO callers have been tested to -40 degrees with these batteries.
Well...yes and no. It doesn't come with a battery pack, you have to buy AA batteries. So I guess depending on what kind of batteries you buy, you may have more or less cold weather trouble. Seems strange a $600 electronic doesn't have a battery pack. I feel like I'm in 1989 again....
