    Fox Pro Fox Jack Deoy

    Just ordered a Fox Jack decoy for my Fox Pro e-caller, this model installs directly to the caller replacing the battery door. Anybody have any experience with this decoy? I'm looking for expected unit life, battery life and motor noise level.

    Thanks Chuck

    Travis, I'll put it to the test the week following Superbowl sunday. Headed back up to the hole for a few days of serious dog call'n !!

    Elk Trout, Thanks for the input. I hope you guys just had some weak batteries. Normally if the temps aren't to extreme I can get about a day and a half out of new batteries (caller only). However, the fox jack decoy shares the batteries with the caller and I expect shortened battery life. If I can get a full day of call'n in on a fresh set of batteries I'll be happy.

    My buddy just got the same decoy. Really liked the movement. Not sure if it was a fluke, but after only a couple sets the batteries burned out. Other than that it worked great. Hopefully it was just our batteries that were the problem.

    I like the looks of the standalone model as well and I don't know which one to go with. Batt life might be a deal breaker...

    Yea, I hear ya. I also was looking at the stand alone decoys but decided to keep it simple, but hell, I'm already carrying to much stuff. The other thing is I don't think it's necessary to run the decoy 100% of the time just enough to key him in and keep him coming.
