Foxpro decoys
« on: November 09, 2017, 01:12:54 PM »
I recently acquired a Foxpro Scorpion in a trade with one of our members,  :tup:
I am interested in adding a decoy, but the only one I can find that is compatible is the "Jack-in-the-Box"
Are there any other decoys that will work?

They will all work but only the FoxJack will plug into the auxilary port to operate it remotely.  I quess you could rewire any of them to to use thauxilarry port.  I think the auxilary post is basicly an on/off switch but is limited to a pretty light load probly not more than the Foxpro decoy load.  I know some that have modified bird decoys to work off the auxilary port.

I like decoys, others hate em,  I just leave them running through the whole stand and haven't seen a problem.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

 :) Look the mounts over for the decoys, that is the real difference. One of them mounts to the ground on a stake. if there is a breeze tie a light feather onto some light fishing line, alligator clip it to a limb.

I use the mojo critr and the turkey feather on fishing line as well.  My feather is on a fishing arrow shaft so I can use it in the open.  The only other decoy I have occasionally used is a coyote mount.  After a while, unless you are doing predator control or contest you pare down all the crap you carry into the field.

I use a Foxpro Blackjack with my Icotec e-caller. It just plugs into the aux jack and I can use my remote to turn the decoy on or off. I just needed to buy a mono audio cord with 1/8" male plugs.
