This is an overview of the Extreme Dimension EDMR302 and Mojo Outdoors Critter Decoy. The actual review will come later.

In the past year I have easily lost close to a dozen and a half chickens to a coyote. It would be easy to put out some foothold traps, but what about my dogs getting into them? I could not forgive myself if someones pet got into a foothold trap.

To take care of the coyote problem I got an Extreme Dimension EDMR302 remote control call and a Mojo Outdoors Critter Decoy.

To prevent accidentally trapping of pets I decided to order a call and decoy.

Extreme Dimension EDMR302

The Extreme Dimension EDMR302 did not come with any instructions, but as it turned out they were not really needed. Put the batteries in the unit, which requires a philips head screw driver, turn it on, then start playing with the remote.

Speaker - Turning the EDMR302 on was easy enough, there is a sliding on/off button on the back. When the unit is on there is a visible green flashing light.

The speaker has a stand that rotates to point the speaker from the horizontal to the vertical position.

The antenna rotates to go from horizontal to vertical.

Four AA batteries are used to power the speaker.

On the back of the speaker there is a 1-2-3 selector. I am going to guess this matches the channel 1-2-3 selector on the remote. If this is true then one remote could operate up to three calls? I am not 100% sure on that as instructions were not included in the package.

The speaker takes two sound sticks with 5 calls each. To change between the two sticks press the set/select button on the bottom right hand corner of the remote. Pressing the button set/select button will cycle through the sound stick number on the bottom of the display on the remote.

With the stand in the down position so the speaker rest horizontal to the ground, the speaker measures around 5 3/4 inches long, 5 inches wide, and 4 1/4 inches tall with the antenna horizontal with the speaker. With the antenna in the vertical position this brings the height to 7 1/2 inches tell.

Remote - On the remote there is no pause or stop button. There is how ever a mute button which stops the call. There is power no or power off button, but there seems to be an auto-power off when not used. To start the remote just push a call button.

The remote has a decoy button for when you have a decoy plugged into the speaker. I did not buy a decoy that plugs into the speaker. Instead I bought a stand alone decoy.

AAA batteries are used to power the remote.

On the top left hand corner of the remote are the volume buttons. I tested the volume control at a range of around 75 yards and they worked well. The remote is supposed to work up to 150 yards. Here in southeast Texas the usual shot is going to be around 100 yards.

The remote has an antenna that can extend from the body.

The remote measures 4 3/4 inches long including lanyard attachment, 2 3/8 inches wide and 1 1/8 inches thick.


Mojo Outdoors Critter Decoy

Very easy to assemble and get started.

The antenna slips on and has what appears to have a set screw.

A steel spikes threads onto the bottom of the decoy.

Decoy measurements:

Housing - 9 1/4 inches long.
Spike, threaded into housing - 4 1/2 inches long
Decoy top - about 9 1/2 inches

Once assembled the whole unit is around 22 inches long.

Disclosure

I bought both the Extreme Dimension EDMR302 and Mojo Outdoors Critter Decoy with my own money. This review, video and images are not paid placements. Any opinions expressed are my own.

I'd say - as a board owner, you're pretty much able to advertise whatever it is you want to, Kev ! :)

..............but did the coyotes agree to play with your new found bits of kit yet? I am genuinely interested in the effect the critter has on them as I am seriously thinking of making my own up for foxes here in the UK. Our foxes get very 'squeak' shy as everyone is at it but a wiggly critter in the field might just pull them in close. I have all the kit to make the motion variable, I use this on my pigeon flappers. Look forward to success report.

I use the foxpro caller and a mojo critter. When a coyote fixes on the critter he is as good as dead. Coyote calling is a great winter pastime. Good luck and don't give up if you don't first succeed.Q

Don't worry bout catching someones dog/cat in a foot hold. The trap will hardly break the skin.

If your neighbors love their animals so much the would keep em home. Maybe the neighbors pets are liking chicken-wouldn't be the first time!!??

...waiting for the follow-up report. I've been on the verge of getting some of this equipment for a long time now. The coyotes I've shot so far were only targets of opportunity, while deer hunting. One actually had the remains of a fawn in it's mouth when I shot it.

What kind of "foot hold" trap are we talking about? When I used them, I often set two just far enough apart so the critter couldn't spin and twist a leg off. I did a bunch of trapping in the seventies and I don't ever remember a useable animal foot coming out of a trap.

Foot hold-a trap w/ jaws. Actually leg hold is probably the preferred term as opposed to a body holding Conibear.
