Primos Alpha Dogg Game Caller
I like the way it folds up into a smaller package and great camo, I had to turn it on in the field to find it twice. I like the crisp clear coyote calls and hit the "hot 1" button inside and wow loud and clear, wife not pleased!!!! The remote has a great screen and once you use it the menu becomes easier to navigate but I wish it came with a lanyard??? I crow hunt alot and do think Primos can do much better on the quality of the included crow calls, my PM-4 is much better but not clear crisp due to speaker design? I will download some others but I read that you should review the website for detailed downloading as there have been issues but Primos will help you solve anything.

Went to store to buy a FoxPro Spitfire along with an exteranl speaker, as my buddy's spitfire just wasn't loud enough to suit me. Had looked online at the Alpha Dogg, but since there were no reviews, I decided against it. At the store, another hunter was there buying the Alpha Dogg. He said he had just hunted with a buddy who had one, and it was a fantastic unit - he said much better than the Spitfire. He convinced me and I have been thrilled. This is a much more substantial unit than the lower end FoxPros, and the three speakers provide more volume than I will use and the sound is very clear. It is camoflaged, and the side speakers can be rotated forward or folded flat on the side, allowing a 180 degree calling range or you can point all 3 speakers in one direction. The legs are actually the covers for the side speakers that fold down for use as legs, and fold up for a compact transport. Remote works great and the 75 calls include almost everything you can think of. This is just a great unit at half the cost of a comparable FoxPro. I have used it twice so far, with good success both times.

very loud and clear
excellent clearity and realistic sounds! Also, this call gets very loud to reach those preditors way off. The varity of the calls that come pre-loaded are amazing!

Not for me
The sounds that PRIMOS offers are....odd. Ive never heard most of those sounds used by predator hunters before. The rabbit squealer sounds good for a little...then the "rabbit" makes an odd unfamiliar beep sound. Made me not have confidence in the ability of the call. I had a group of yotes respond back to the coyote locator. Buts thats all. And I dont care what brand it is. This or the FoxPro I have now, they get a little fuzzy at times. I have met PLENTY of guys that buy an expensive electronic caller and return it immediately claiming they "scare off" the predators and they will stick to hand/mouth calls. I dont know about that, but I have had more then one fox come barreling in after I shut my FoxPro off and began handcalling.
