I've been getting into some yote hunting here lately. I have an icotech but never called anything in with it. Went with a friend last night and he has a foxpro and we killed a coyote almost immediately on second set up. Do you guys think it'd be worth switching to a foxpro even for the money? Opinions please

Setup with coyotes in area would be more important than anything. I would guess if you used the icotech it would have worked too.

you can get a FoxPro Deadbone for around $99 ... 15 preset calls, but you can NOT add to it....it is what I'll be using this season ... remote operation to 100+ yds... I use AA Lithium batteries in it and in the 9 volt remote and keep and extra set with me... not sure the run time per se is, havnt found any reviews that give the battery life ... the lithiums should have it last longer and work better in the cold ...

Mag hunter I agree with bean, yotes may have not been in the area at that time. I would not give up on it just yet, but a tid bit of info.
I did read somewhere that companys that provide downloads for E callers are switching to foxpro and will not down load to the icotech.
Im sure there are still plenty of places you could find that will down load their calls.
Good luck and stay at it.

As a reminder that yotes mating season is coming up, so be ready to switch up.
also as the late season is here the yotes sometimes take a little longer to show up, but its nice when like your recent hunt they come in quick. They are hungry.

I actually just bought an icotec gc350 seeing that it was programmable and that its remote just has buttons and not a screen that can be hard to see in the daylight. I prefer just buttons. I was able to get on the icotec website and download every call that I wanted and change out the calls on the remote from the ones I didn't want to the ones I wanted. So far the call has been great and I've killed a couple coyotes so far with it.

True. I'll still probably try to get out.
