Does anyone else vary their volume. We turn to max. in short bursts and then lower to mid. or lower. Just wanted to see how everyone else does itwink.

Depends on the wind and if I have snuck in the middle of a bunch of crows it seams like full volume calls em all at once for a one time party. I end up at max in a short period of time but I usually don't ramp it back and forth too much once I get it there. I do back it down on a calm day when I see birds coming to the decoys allready commited.

I got to where I would decrease volume on approach. It seemed to keep the birds from flying in high and staying high. I learned that decoy spread made a difference also. If you have somthing in your spread to get and keep a bandits attention he will be more workable. I will see a difference this season. That CS-24 will blow feathers off of em if its cranked all the way up on approach.

Yep...wide open till birds are approaching...then reduce the noise. I am am one of those who believe modern electronic callers can make noise to a lever it alarms or deters..or even hurts the ears of incoming crows. Will never know for sure, but I sure turn mine down..electronic AND mouth calls.

Hi boys,

I agree that on calm days, there is no advantage (and probably a disadvantage) to generating max ecaller volume.  When it gets windy or if you are hunting around noise (next to a highway or a loud stream) then cranking it up can work for you.

We probaby use our various FoxPro's between 20 and 30 on those calm days but if the wind comes up or when crows quit responding then we will hit the throttle up to 40 on their scale.

Hi Shane,

For raccoon calling start at 20 and work up to 30 on the "Raccoon Fight" sound...  Many of ours charged in when we were calling at a FoxPro volume setting of 30.

Regards,

Gadget Bob

I keep mine at full blast pretty much all the time....all the way until they are dead. I run a FX3, however, and they do not produce as much volume as some of the other Foxpro models.

          I agree with skip on this one,at least until the shooting starts. I've had my best results with this method, then hitting the mourning or distress calls at max volume right after the first shot.
