Thought this for a long time, after all, their hearing is far more sesetive than ours.
I suspect this is correct, my caller has several sounds (GC350) which I can use on different nights.
I'm going out with a 'mirror and polystyrene' caller this week so I'll see how that draws them in, I suspect the better manual control of the mirror caller will allow me to 'teese' the fox in closer... the electronic caller works but it's not very dynamic, especially when charlie is close.
