1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    A buddy of mine uses one and has excellent results.

    Ive have had first had experience last year on open ground pitch black night. Neil put the caller in the 50 yards from the hedge. Turned it on and within 10/15 minutes a dog fox came out of nowhere, then another 30 minutes after that.
    But I will say we were using an Archers unit too, so an anavantage we had.

    My mate uses one. That's a good price.

    Good bits of kit. The remote is very clear with LCD display of the call you are selecting. Good sound. A remote speaker socket so you can have a speaker on top of your 4x4.
    I have tried loads of electric calls and while the do pull foxes in well.
    I don't think anything beats a good selection of mouth blown and squeeze calls.
    The electric ones just don't pull them as we'll for me.
    With the mouth blown calls you can read the fox more and adjust the call to what he responds best too.
    But one of the best electric calls.

    Cheers Andy

    I think the spitfire has been discontinued but they are a good bit of kit. The only problem I've had with my wildfire is the range of the remote can be effected by grass, power lines etc.

    I have the wildfire with the 200 calls on , no problems at all set out to 100 yards , my permissions are quite undulating so the grass is never really an issue I am generally always above/below the speaker and not really noticed the power lines affecting it tbo, I think they are a good bit of kit , I do have a few cheap mouth ones though too , some days some calls work and others don't
    cheers

    Mine was so bad here I sent it back. Some places it would only work at 10 yards. When it was tested by Bushwear they said it was fine to 100 yards, so when we got it back we tested it in another field and it was ok to 100yards. The next night I put it out 60 yards here and it didn't work. After talking to a lot of owners the answer seems to be electric cables and long grass. At other farms we shoot on its fine for 100 yards, we always try not to put it on the ground but a fence posts etc.

    Calls are funny things what will call one fox in another will run away. Juveniles distress call has been working well over the past few weeks but won't soon. Vixen mating call in October, November is always good and screaming rabbits is always worth a try. The best was three fox's all coming in at the same time! If you get one and want some extra calls I have a few I can e mail you.

    I'd like to add you can get "call shy fox's" so if a fox comes in and hears you or you shoot and miss the same fox will be more wary next time.
