You may be familiar with Randy Anderson from his "Calling All Coyotes" video series. If you've seen him call, you know what he's capable of. We have combined our call knowledge with his expertise in speaking the coyotes' language to bring you a series of calls that makes us proud. The Lil' Dog comes with two separate mouthpieces; just pop the white one on for long-range calling, or the green one on for close-in calling. The Lil' Dog is an open-reed style call that reproduces mouse peeps, distress calls of birds, jackrabbits, cottontails, fawns and pup whines. It is a great pup howler. Blow 'em away with the Lil' Dog.
I'd say this is their easiest to use open reed caller. Very versatile as well. With its bigger brother the Hot Dog, for me, it was a little bit more tricky to trail off at the end of an interrogation howl. Trailing off at the end of the howl with the Lil' Dog was a significant bit easier to do smoothly.
Received this call a few days ago and have been practicing, I will be using this in the upcoming season so I cannot say how effective it is in the field.
To start, when i got these i was an ameture with coyote. First time i used this, my very first call, i got a reply from a coyote. After 4 times back and forth, called a jackrabbit in distress and the yote bolted at me. After the takedown, i used the pup call as a distress and called in a second! These calls truly work. Id recommend to anyone wanting to not waste their breath
Sound good, easy to use (I watched the videos) but I am giving it 4 stars because I called in an area twice where I know there are a ton of coyotes and didn't bring any in. Probably my technique, if I get them in on the next go out I will change to a 5 star.
This is a very versatile set of calls. I would recommend you also buy Randy Anderson's instructional DVDs distributed by Primos. In the DVD "The Truth About Predator Hunting" Randy shows you how to use these two calls to make all the sounds needed for predator hunting and how to use the calls in different situations.
is kinda hard to get the right sounds but, guess it is going to take some practice.
Need to learn how to blow these calls. But, I have gotten return howls from real coyotes as I perfect my calling ability.
Broad range of sounds available here. Lots of stuff to practice and play with.
