I been looking for somewhere else to buy it and what i've found so far is that everyone wants half the price of the ding-a-ling for shippping :argh:.  I may wait until after Christmas to see if they don't come down in price[they are a bit of a novelty item] or contact the company and see if I can field test it as a prostaffer :biggrin:.

you guys ought to know better.  most products on the market has atleast 200% markup.  I will have to say that when we toured the foxpro facility my father asked how much I paid for my call.  I told him and he said they are making it for atleast a fifth of what I paid.  oh well though.  I wanted one and I got one.  it is supply and demand.  if the demand wasn't there they would not be able to sell it for that much.  they are also trying to recoup their research money they spend in research and development.  you figure in a few years with the market the way it is a caller is becoming obsolete because there are many people that want the best thing out there.  how many people do you see upgrading their ecall because there is something else better.  same thing with darn near about everything out in the market place today.  Cars, computers, electronics such as mp3 players.  I mean come on an I pod touch?  anyone seen the price on those things?  for what to listen to music?  I remember having a walkman tape player.  if there is someone out there willing to spend x amount of $ on something then that is what they will sell for.   it's america get used to it. 

also I am willing to bet the door bell call listed probably isn't as loud as some want.  and it might be distorted once it does become loud enough.

A fool and his money are soon parted. J.P. Barnham


Hey I bought an FX5. I wanted a WT but I went the FX route cause of the fact I can put sounds on it and dont have to send it in just to swap out sounds. Now after hunting with it for a season and a half I am positive I would have rather just put the money into something else. Maybe, Oh I dont know, a new tattoo or a piercing.

Nah!!... I am glad I have my FX5 cause I can sit and recorde myself on my hand calls and put them on the e-caller. The e-caller will also do things I cant do with a mouth call. You ever try to sound like two tom cats fighting with an open reed? Kind of difficult. 

Do I agree with the pricing of all the e-callers out there. NO but like it has been said over and over its supply and demand. If the product works people are going to pay whatever price they ask.

DO I think it would be funny if a coyote was actually called in using a door bell. DAMM BETCH YA!! Would that fact make the price of high end e-callers go down. NO I dont think so. Would embarrassing the companys that set the prices by showing them that a door bell can call in yotes help. Not likley but you never know.

That would put the cost of this remote controlled doorbell at $10.00 :laf:
That didn't help the ecaller companies :nono:

I picked up an FX3 from a dealer at his cost.  :biggrin:  I have the FX3,rechargeable battery pack & camo carry bag & have right around $300 in it. They were $440 thru other dealers. I like it that I can change sounds here at home too. Plus you ever try to sound like a bunch of crows having at it with a hawk with one crow call in your face??  :laf: :laf:    Me neither!!  :nono:  Does it matter what it costs to buy it?? Nope.  :nono:  Cause if it did then it would matter how much you paid for the device you shot the critter with. Does it really matter what the markup is?? Nope!!  :nono:   Cause if it did it would matter what the markup is on the rig you shot the critter with.   It's called pay to play for a reason. Because you have to to do it.  Nobody made me buy it either.  :nono:  I did it all on my own.  :biggrin:

hey ya can go all kinds of directions with this.

I use a mojo critter getter. The one with a spinning cable. Works great. I also have a feather on a stick. it was a lot cheaper and I found everything I needed for it for free. I like them both. I use them both. they both work. I would think about the same. The mojo cost me like 15 bucks or somthing. I got a deal on it. and why not I had the money to blow on it. And that is my point. some people would never think of making something there selfs if they can pay someone to do it for them.

  Bought a Js prey master, foxpro 416, Foxpro FX3 and a Minaska all in one. Worked over time to buy them and did without here at home. I wanted the latest great thing out there. Would I do it all over again? why yes? Can I bicth about the prices? why yes.


I would like to see e-callers go down in price so others won’t have to struggle like I did to purchase one. Electronics have continued to decrease in price over the last several years but E-callers have not. They seem to rise at each so called new technology. In reality it has no more technology than a early 90’s MP3 player an a two way radio. As a lot of you know I am a Madd calls Big Country All In One fanatic and love their calls, but would love to see then go down to the $250.00 dollar range so more folks could be able to afford one.
 
By having more threads like these around the net and voicing our opinions on the high prices will help bring the prices down. Defending the 200% markups does nothing to help others struggling to enter the coyote hunting world using an e-caller.

I am not about  a guy that can afford a top of the line rifle and a 3,000 dollar a year hunting lease. I am about the working man that struggles to make a living and be able to hunt.
