“FOXPRO FURY CHALLENGE - SOUTH AFRICA”

FOXPRO FURY HUNT – DANIELSKUIL TRIALS

Two dogs that came in like a train, a few crying jackal sounds and then Lightning Jack for a food sound and that’s it! Fury performed like a dream.

I decided upon a Foxpro Scorpion also, so I was ready to use 2 callers and a ZR2 as a back up.

Equipment



You will see this set up with the Fury and Scorpion in photos to come, but here is the actual caller / decoy close up.

I thought to show what I use often, on hunts that results mean everything this is an idea you can try, you too will see it works. This is a FOXPRO SCORPION, it is in a bag I made and surrounded by camo material. I then set it so that the caller lays flat and the aerial sticks out straight, as most my hunts at night are elevated and I have a straight line to my call. On this hunt I used this caller ( for jackal not cats) away from the bakkie at 60m, and I had flat open sight all around, so NOTHING could sneak in to investigate the sounds.

As you see the Scorpion is on top of a large SP55 speaker, I then fit a long dowel to the speaker in front and fit my small wood owl on top of it, I then spray human scent evader all over that unit to hide my scent. I make that evader myself, and it works well. I make the owl look as though it’s sitting on top of a bush.

THE REASON FOR THE OWL

Owls are very curious killers, they love also to eat meat, lots of red meat, and often you will notice owls come in to distress sounds, often hitting your head! So, owls predators know are around where distressed animals are, so a jackal will approach a distress caller and then see the owl, they will be more at ease and not so on edge with all their radars on high alert, and will feel more comfortable, knowing the distress animal is close by! (Unlucky jackal) and this will offer you more time to shoot.

The one jackal I called in with Luscious lips, he came in like a steam train, and I watched him with night vision while my partner worked the chair, I told him softly “ hier kom hy” (“ here he comes”) and I could see that jackal easily in the night vision looking at that owl in the road, he trotted slowly towards it, and I started to kiss softly, my partner put on red light and shot him easily at 43m. He fell and lay 7 metres from my owl set up.

I have used an owl set up, many times, I have NO hesitation that it does work, just make sure to spray anti human scent, as your hands have been all over that owl, and camo bag, the more time we take in preparation for hunting the more successful we will be.

FURY!

FOXPRO FURY / REMOTE CALLER + OWL & COVER


 

Again as the Scorpion was here is my set up with the Fury, the same but without a SP55 speaker. I explain why I use this set up above. 

As an official Foxpro field representative and American Foxpro promoter in South Africa, I was damned if I was not going to try out my long awaited Foxpro Fury, I had placed my order with the first bunch to be released and after a wait from release I finally got my purchase. So, the hunt was to be a Fury and a Scorpion weekend.

If you want to buy a Foxpro Fury like the one I used on this hunt, contact Joe at sales@gofoxpro.com and ask him for the Fury, it takes 5 days to you speed courier, is totally safe and cant get lost, it can be tracked every day on the internet 

One of Gary's secrets on this trip

Here is a trick I used a few times, we hunted open plains – I placed a ZR2 Foxpro caller about 70 metres behind me and to the right. The other caller I put on my left directly to my side and out about 70 metres. I let the ZR2 play a crying jackal sound, it is a genuine jackal sound with big breaks in between, a young jackal about a year old, but he is crying, not distress tjanking, just crying. I let it run, then every 20 second let out a semi social / aggressive jackal with remote control to the other caller. I called and shot 4 jackals like this, every one came in and you could see it was actually confused and looking around. At about 70m it stood still and could not make up its mind what sound to get closer to, but then it was too late, we never missed a single jackal on this hunt.

“GENERAL”

Well, I was to go for 3 nights, however it rained none stop, and I was ONLY able to go out and call all in all for 2 hours, was very bad weather, so all in all I only was able to drop 12 in the 2 hours but it was a venture and also an experiment to try out that new caller.

“PHOTOS”

Here are a couple of pictures that I will relate to a specific part of the hunt. I really enjoyed playing with the new Fury, it is a real dream caller to use. See my website under FOXPRO FURY.

FOXPRO SCORPION

SOUND – LIGHNING JACK MIXED WITH MY OWN CRYING JACKAL SOUND

These two jackal came down a sand road, and stopped, looked at that owl at about 80, then carried on trotting towards it, I followed them in the night vision. Note the owl in my partners hand, the caller is mounted under it on the speaker. The remote is around my neck, you can see the difference between the two remotes. They are about a year and a half old, still very young.

I use Lightning jack call sound often on new farms, its new and works!

I really enjoyed calling in this area, it is totally different to the Karoo, just the rain was a real pest!

FOXPRO SCORPION

SOUND – LIGHNING JACK MIXED WITH MY OWN CRYING JACKAL SOUND


 

This jackal was at a good stand, at 2-30 in the morning it stopped raining, we drove to a close spot and made a stand, I used Lightning jack sound again combined with my personal sound, a crying jackal, and that was that.

After 35 minutes I saw him coming in fast at about 350m, he never stopped running until he was at 110 metres, while I kissed with my lips, the trigger was squeezed and that’s how it ended.

This dog never used the wind at all, just came on in.

SOUND – LIGHNING JACK MIXED WITH MY OWN CRYING JACKAL SOUND

This jackal I called again with the same sequence, Lightning Jack and the crying jackal. I let a crying jackal play on and off for 3 minutes, then hit the Lightning jack sound and whoooooma here they come.

This dog took about 15 minutes to show, I heard him answer on a hill, and then he went quiet, after 15 minutes he arrived, we dropped this one at 90m.

FOXPRO SKYOTE HAND CALLER OPEN REEDED CALL.

SOUND ; RABBIT DISTRESS

This jackal I called with a new Skyote caller of Foxpro, saw him from 300m plus, called him in till 65m and dropped him; he never worked the wind at all, crossed a grass field and went through cattle, went past a tree and trotted at an angle towards us.

I really enjoy blowing a hand caller, but don’t use it to often anymore as my ears are sensitive.

SOUND - LIGHTNING JACK










 

I love the Fury! The cat was shot by a friend of mine, as well as a large female jackal.

 











 

This is my partner that shared my excitement, shame man; every time we dropped a dog I got so excited I nearly broke his ribs with the squeezing! I get very excited when we are victorious, I have always been like that, but I enjoy every moment of calling.
