    Rubbing a moistened piece of polytstyrene across a piece of glass works really well as a fox call.
    Not as portable as a whistle but readily available here to give it a try.

    I downloaded a game call app on my phone and use the mouse squeak or dying rabbit call to bring them in.
    If I don't have time, i simply squeak with my lips

    Bloody hell. I never knew this kind of app even existed. Which one do you have @scottrods? I can see a definite application with the Bluetooth UE Boom.

    I just tried Coyote & Predator Hunting Calls on the iPad and played the four “rabbit in distress“ calls and my Staffords went freakin’ ballistic.

    If you wearing sunglasses a bit if foam in the pocket doesn't take up much room, waterproof as well.

    Like the idea of using the ue boom and an app, might have to try this out

    I use a predator quest cottontail rabbit call, here in Canada, I've called in lots Coyotes, a few wolf, lynx, black bears and grey fox and a lone cat (cougar) that scared the Be Jeasers out of me, and him. I am now a bit more careful, with how much cover is behind me. Most predators will come in to a rabbit destress call.

    Finally got my shit together and went looking for cats. I walked up the race, stopping every 50m to whistle and scan. Was on my 5th or 6th whistle when this little vermin stuck his head out the bush on the other side of the creek. He headed down through the brambles and crossed the gully and came up the face, continuing about 60m towards the whistle, before I shot it, never stopped once. He was up for some dying bunny for sure.

    I just bought T2 on line yesterday. But it's on back order. They can't keep up with demand. Must be making a few bob out of it.

    What I cant get over is that you have put the whistle on that manky disease ridden feral and then you are going to put it in your mouth again
