    What are you guys currently using for predators calls? I'm trying to lure some coyote maybe some hogs in the El Paso area.

    The wounded rabbit is always a good choice. And a howler to locate them.

    I like and use the Haydels Jackrabbit call.
    I think it may be called a baby jackrabbit distress call.
    Cheap and has plenty of volume.

    Thats pretty much what I use also jackrabbit distress call I think a diff. brand though but works pretty good. One thing to think about only happened once but was standing in the back of a truck calling and heard something fly pretty close to my head, which turned out to be a horned owl kinda freaky.

    I have a 3 call set by E.J. Sceery that I have been using for years. It has a jackrabbit for windy days that really reaches out there, a cottontail call for calm days or fairly close up work and a squeaker for really close up work.

    I think the Haydel's has a squeaker on it not sure tho. I have a howler that would howl and do the wounded rabbit but I think I broke it playing around. LOL. I'd suggest getting a cheap wounded rabbit/squeaker combo then sit at the house and play with it till you figure out how to use it. If you're yote hunting remember to get the full camo out, the yotes have great eyes.

    In my experience hog calls are crap. If a hog hears a squealing hog or piglet, they know something bad is happening and will run in the other direction.

    I have had people tell me that sometimes if they are stalking boars when sows are in heat that grunting will get them to grunt back in challenge, but only sometimes, and that they usually will haul ass in the opposite direction.

    just my :2cents: { I do have some expertise in this field}

    Yes hog calls are a waste of money! But they will come in every no and then to predator calls. I don't know why but I have seen them all bull charge a fox pro.

    Horned owl tastes a lot like bald eagle
