I only used one of those for turkey hunting. It had like 5 different sounds to it. I guess it worked OK.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

well I personally like to use mouth calls and rattle manualy (ive seen some electric with rattle on there if your wondering) but really the electric calls are ok because you can have almost 6 different calls in one small speaker, if you want get your mouth call and grunt, or what ever you are gonna do then play the same thing you did with your mouth on your electric and see which on sounds better or more realistic to you and use it, but really thats just my opinion, I like mouth calls but I bet some electric calls are much much better than the ones Ive usedm, I bet theres even better mouth calls than mine but really it just comes down to what your oppinion is,

ya reminded me that i have one of those electric deer calls got it from sportsmans guide it straps to a tree and you can use a remote to make 6 different calls.works pretty good at spooking em but maybe it was too loud .its illegal to use em here for hunting i was given it as a gift it still in one of my many gear boxes

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
