      Hi Brent,

      I recently ordered a FoxPro Shockwave, their latest caller. Whackit (or Varminator here) bought one before me.

      Same price, a litlle more features I think but probably not as LOUD by the looks. I have only had the chance to use it once with no luck. I hope to give it a decent go in the next few weeks. They seem well made and I have played with it a bit. The crows and other birds cant stay away from it. Had crows circling overhead when I use it in my back yard. Crows are highly intelligent birds, if it fools crows I think it would have no dramas fooling foxes cats etc.

      Let me know how you get along. Research the sounds you want. Takes a bit of time but worth it as the default sounds have a lot of US type game in there and probably a waste of time here. Not sure about the CS but the shockwave comes with 100 sounds. I went through and selected the 100 I wanted. The Foxpro is also configurable (setup your own categories for sounds) and you can import your own sound files. Havent done that yet but I want to record some lambing noises, eg ewe in distress giving birth. Think that would be effective at lambing time.

    Hi Brent,

    As Vromme said I too have the Shockwave, a mate of mine "Big Maxy" has the CS24 and has used it to call in a hell of a lot of foxes (he also uses his Tenterfield in combination with it) he generally starts out with the Tenterfield and after a min or so then cranks up the CS24 and lets it do its thing.

    I've only used mine twice now called in a fox on the 2nd outing and missed a chance to have a shot as it winded me just as I spotted it. They do work really well and I'm certain I will get my moneys worth over the years.

    Maxy will often put is CS24 on the bullbar (uses zip ties) to secure it and then just sits in the cab and switches it on via remote waits a few mins and hits the lights to see what's coming, works well.

    We have often had 2 or 3 foxes coming in at once whilst using the Fox Pro's. I'm going to start going out soon and see if any of the fox cubs are getting about yet, no doubt the fox pro will work well on them too.

    I was out about 2mths ago and tried the fox bark sound and got a fox barking back but what I did notice when using some of the fox sounds the sheep really reacted too the sound and would run like mad, so I guess the sounds are realistic enough to make them bloody nervous.

    Have a look at this link mate - it has the contact details of the sales people who should be able to help you - I went through Ty (spoke to him via phone and email from memory) its a pretty straight forward process.

      Congrats mate - I'm sure you will love it.

      This is the list of sounds I chose for my Shockwave - I'm still waiting for later on this year before I get out and really start using it. I guess try any of the sounds you like and see what happens.

      I would suggest taking a Silva or Tenterfield whistle along as well. They are proven to work in Oz and don't cost as much.

      Just have to get the hang of using them.....now where does my tongue go?

        Ill be using my tenterfield whistle along with the caller. Mainly to call them in from far off (as it make so much noise).

        I like shooting at reasonable ranges and the problem with handheld callers/whistles/foam on glass etc is they bring the foxes in close to you, (Ive had them come in literally at arms length). Great with a shotty but I like to shoot them from a distance. This way you can leave the caller, setup 100m or so away and start calling and scan the area. Its not the cheapest option, may not be the best either but its the type of shooting I enjoy.

      They are a great unit. Get plenty of rechargeable AAA's.

      Dont be too harsh on preditor calls I spoke to them and they said they werent set up for international orders and are getting ripped off by their couriier (were going to change in the near future).

      Let us know how it goes. I hope to use mine a bit in the next few weeks.


      I selected this list as I wanted to try it on a couple of other species if I get the chance but will mainly use for foxes.

      I think it would be great to have lambing sounds (birthing ewe in distress, new born lamb etc). I would image it would do well esp at night around lambing time.

      My list of sounds are:
