For those of you that haven’t had the chance to hunt over the Flextone FLX electronic calls, you need to go to your local sporting goods store and buy one now. There are currently four calls in the series and they range from $54.99 to $307.99. One of these calls will fall into your price range and you will call predators into your stand with them. I’ve been using the FLX 1000 for the past year and a half and I have harvested many coyotes while using this call in the state of Idaho. On a recent trip to Texas we were able to call in grey fox, coyote, raccoon and bobcat with the FLX 1000. The grey fox could not get enough of the juvenile jack rabbit sound that comes pre-loaded on the call.
These calls are very simple to use. Power on the call and the remote – and you are ready to start hunting. The pre-loaded sounds that come on the calls are more than enough to get you started calling predators. If you want more sounds the FLX 500 and the FLX 1000 give you room to expand your call library by the use of a direct download or a removable SD card. The thing that I love most about this call is you don’t need to read a manual or watch YouTube videos on how to use the call. You can pick up the remote and start using it immediately because of the simplicity of the design.
The reason that I use the FLX 1000 is because it is loud. Volume isn’t everything in a predator call but when you do need the volume, it is very nice to have it. The best thing about this call is that it doesn’t matter if I am on the lowest or the highest volume setting, the call is crystal clear. This is something those other e-calls that are twice or three times the amount struggle with. Any experienced or aspiring predator hunter would be happy with this call!
