My experience is that grey fox will come into anything that doesnt sound like a threat or intimidating. They are one of the easiest critters to call, and when they come they come hard and fast.

Come to think of it, there's a video clip somewhere. Randy Anderson movie maybe  :shrug: ...they had one come in so hard it bounced off the chest of the caller who sat leaning against a fence post.

I watched one bounce off the rear tire of a truck while parked and calling from the bed of the truck.
I watched another one jump over the barrel of a caller laying in the prone position.

Grey Fox are typically hyper, and eager to come in like a bolt of lightning to anything that sounds like a free meal. But it dont take them long to asses the situation and bug out either. :nono:

Kettle Creek calls makes a few calls that I've heard are fox stompers... so much so that I'm afraid that foxpro has bought him out...  I haven't tried but see if you can google him..  he has one called the Griz-N-Gray...?  (I haven't heard it) it has a good reputation though.
Yotehntr calls... put something pretty on your lips :wink:

Get the young lady out there blowing on a hand call. :yahoo:
sometimes I wonder....is that getting closer..... then it hits me

I had a personal conflict the other day, now I'm not speaking to myself.... I'm getting lonesome

I met the girl of my dreams, I was the man of her dreams too.....she used the term "nightmares" though.
