Thread: Electronic Predator callers for Deer?

    Electronic Predator callers for Deer?

    I'm thinking of picking up either the Foxpro or Western Rivers line of electronic predator calls which have many more calls programmed into them other than just dying varmits and rodents! Most have deer fights and buck and doe grunts, bleats and wheezes that will sound better than any plastic reed call could ever reproduce. I'm not sure if these are legal in all states for deer hunting but i got to think the buck fight would have to be lights out, we as hunters can rattle but that comming from 20 feet up in a tree has to sound korny to a deer much less there is no brush busting and leaf rustling involved up there, fights are more than just antlers banging. So, has anyone had great sucess using these on deer also or am i'm over analizing the effectiveness of these? I always wonder what a buck thinks also when he sees a decoy but hears it from 20 feet above it lol, i think they are smarter than that, a call under the decoy would be killer not? If i'm gonna spend $299 or more for a good call, i want to be able to use it for yotes and deer!

    Call the warden / fish & game governing body etc...
    Everyone thought the calls were illegal here in NH, but a quick call resulted in clarification. Electronic calls are legal for deer in NH, bot not moose.

    I have been told they are legal to use in Wi, but not by a law enforcement offical, so it isn't 100% fact. My cousin was talking about it today and he's pals with the local game warden so i'll ask him to get the word direct from him!

    Did a search on WI DNR homepage. Typed in electronic calls. Clicked on the first link that popped up and this is what is says:

    It is illegal to use any electronic or electronically amplified calls while hunting Migratory Game Birds or wild turkeys. It is legal to use any type of call or amplified sound for attracting foxes, raccoon, crows, coyotes, deer, and Unprotected Species during the open season.

    Yes, I was surprised when I read this earlier in the year. Of course, they don't make it legal on our turkey varmits - lol.

    So then, for those guys who can and do use them, is it like cheating meaning do they come running during the pre rut to a real buck fight call?
