I am having to many foxes around, so i'm thinking of buying a predator call.
Have been looking at several brands, and narrowed it down to two.
Is there any of you guys that have any experience with: Foxpro Wildfire and Primos Turbo dog?
It will be used for Foxes and Crows mostly.
Please let me know all the pros and cons you have. 
Thanks.

I haven't used the Primos, but Foxpros' work better than anything, I have implemented.
 
Crow calls are hilarious. We did a crow call just to see what would happen and within minutes we had crows all over us. It was the craziest thing I had ever seen.

I ordered some of the Primos calls for customers a few yrs back. They sounded pretty good but the ones I saw were limited on volume and the remote was not wireless. I have about five yrs experience with the FoxPro an can't find anything negative about it. The volume is more than you need and I have taken hundreds of crows with it. And the wireless remote has great range.  I've been with guys who stand in the back of the truck when callin fox cause they'll get in the truck with you. No Joke!! You run that pup distress call and you better be off the ground when they come. But you'll see mostly grays, red fox will show sometimes but you have to be quick or their gone. The FoxPro is pricey if your not gonna use it much but for the money you'll have the best out there. Let us know what you go with and Good Luck!!

I have a foxpro.  It works great on yotes.  We have called in many of them with it.  They often come running full speed.

Thanks for your help.
Untill yesterday i was leaning most on the Fox Pro. 
Last night i was duck hunting and drove with an old hunting buddy of mine. I told him that i was going to do something serious about the foxes at the farm.
When i told him about buying a caller, he said he had something i should see before buying.
We went to his storrage room ( full of stuff he buys on auctions)
He had a brand new IcoTec 300 i could buy for 30$. Couldn't say no to that one.Smile
I never heard of that brand before, but it sounds right and LOUD.... In case it's no good i can sell it with no problem at that price i guess.
So im exited to try it out hopefully at the end of this week. I'll keep you posted..

Claus thats what I use for fox control as well.  Its been a great call and it will actually get louder than my buddies foxpro.  The sounds are limited but I've never had one not come in on the fox distress.  Just cut it up and let it play through the loop.  I've had them run in as quick as 5 minutes and after about 20.

Hi Graham
Now THAT's good news... You mention the limited sounds, that was in my mind to, but at that price and for my purpose i think it will do.
Have you used it on Crows? 
Can't wait to get out there and try it out.Oh Yea Baby

Here's a little update on the device.
I haven't had a chance to check it out on fox yet, but aparently the crows L O V E S the baby crove call...
My buddy and i tried it out. It didn't take more than 3-4 min. before the first 5 - 10 crows showed up. After very short time it explodet with crows. An estimate is somewhere between 60-80 birds were constantly screaming and acting crazy. 
Unfortunately we didn't have anything to make them hit on exept from the call so they didn't come down as low as we would like them to, so we only got a few. That will change...WinkWinkWink
