    I'm hoping I have arrived at the end of this issue.  16 Jan 12 my Alpha Dogg shouldbe here.  I ordered mine from All Predator Calls .com.  Have used the place before with great luck.  I saw some of the prices paid and I got a great deal on mine, $250.  Supposed to come with 75 sounds, varying species bout half coyote/distress and I guess a selections of other game calls, and 6 expert hunts.  We have a big County wide coyote hunt in Feb, guess we will see if this thing rides in the truck or gets left in the field.  Will let you know.

    I love mine. The remote has not failed me but I have only set up 50 yards from the speaker. I downloaded 13 sounds which was not the easiest but only took 15 mins to get them on my turbodogg. I even got the lion growl. I will have fun with this one at camp. lol  Would like to see a Lion roar sound. More fun.

    @ Clark Manuel You may not be falsely advertising per se, but you are certainly misleading your buyers.  Perhaps you think the language you put on the packaging for the Turbodogg unit is acceptable, but judging by the comments other buyers have left, you have left a bad taste in buyers' mouths.  Primos has made it nearly impossible to find a way to get sounds to add to the Turbodogg and completely beyond the bounds of possibility of downloading any sounds.  For $100 more I can have the cougar calls on the Alphadogg automatically when it only costs $5 on the Turbodogg; sounds like a watered-down version of bait and switch if I have ever heard of one.  On top of that, previous postings from NOVEMBER of 2011 misled buyers into thinking that a download site would be forthcoming when you've JUST MENTIONED that one has never been established, even internally. " Scratch a lie, find a thief" is how I'm addressing this situation and will be returning my unit. Be forewarned I will strongly discourage friends and acquaintences from ever buying one of your products. 

    Also, consider redesigning your website as it is extremely hard to navigate.

    I would have to agree with the rest of these folks that your preparation for this product is very poor. I will be contacting Cabelas and letting them know that I am greatly disappointed in a product that is on their shelves and has not been checked on to see if it will satisfy their customers at all ends. Also, I believe that you have falsely advertised on your packing box that one is able to download additional sounds from your website and if someone was really ticked off they would have grounds for a lawsuit. Time to get your act together as quickly as possible and never let this happen again in the future. Greatly disappointed and will think twice before purchasing any primos products in future and will also spread the word about this to my many hunting companions.

    I have tried everything to get better distance from my remote on my Turbo Dogg and can get no better than 50 yards with the best condition (elevated speaker and standing up).  When speaker is on ground and I am sitting down in hunting conditions I usually can't get more than 25 yards maybe 30 if I hold my arm above my head.  That is with nothing between me and my unit.  I have heard people say they can get up to 300 out of it.  I am begining to think I have a defect in my unit.  I like everything else about the call and took a bobcat on my very first stand with it, but I really would like to get at least 50 yards out of the remote.  Just wondering if I got a bad one?

    I would like to comment on somethin. I'm not being rude or disrespectful, but reading all this negativity that's being written is kinda depressing. I thought Hunters was supposed to have at least a little patience. I'd also Like to say that, I was on this site a few months ago and they had sounds posted that you could actively listen to and they were free to download. Obviously primos is having some technical issues, as does every company sometimes. I would think it's safe to assume that the nice people at primos are puling their hair out over this situation. websites,making and setting them up can be a real nightmare. I myself have not actually ever had the first problem (at least not any that I didn't cause myself by being too hard on equipment) out of any of the products I've bought from these nice people. Maybe I'm wrong, what do I know anyways I'm just a dumb hillbilly.

    I dont know where you all are located but here in the east(WV) predator hunting seems harder..i took the alpha dog out for the first time and killed a bobcat!  So far the caller works amazing.  Eagles and crows were swarming.   I cant wait for the new page for downloading new sounds!

    I got a email from Primos on NOV 23 2011 stating that their sounds would be available for download in the next "couple weeks". Here it is the end of March 2012 and still no sounds to download...........WHEN??!!

    I love the turbo dog call but I need moose sounds. If not soon this call is getting returned. The main reason I purchased this caller is the ability to download sounds!!

    WHEN??!!

    i"ve had great success with my alpha dogg .Can't wait for the sounds to come out but hope you can hear them before you buy them . Primos needs to offer better  instructions(((POOR INSTRUCTIONS AND VERY LIMITED))) on their product  its more trial and error trying to figure it out . Seems like its taking to long for the sounds to come out....

    Hey Kadie I agree with you I get really tired of hereing all the wineing. I have had my Alpha Dogg since the 1st of Nov. Every problem I had has been fixed. As for hering the the sounds I don't care, I think people want to be able to here them so they can download them for free.

    But what the Hell do I know I'm just a dessert Rat

    We are located in Central Mississippi (20 miles northwest of Jackson).  We've certainly had our share of very curious hawks and even an eagle checking us out while testing on our bow range. 

    Thanks for the feedback!

    @ vallonhicks - We are truly sorry you feel that way, and I don't deny that "misled" is a valid description of this situation, but there was NEVER any intention to mislead or misrepresent the productt by anyone on Primos end.  You can believe that or not, but that IS the TRUTH.

    I am unclear as to why you would imply obtaining sounds is beyond the bounds of possibility when the instructions to obtain them are at the top of this page.  We have had hundreds of customers use this method and while it may not be an ideal solution, it IS a perfectly valid method to obtain the sounds.  Also, your implication that the extra cost of the Alpha Dogg is simply a way for us to charge more for additional sounds is logically inaccurate.   The Alpha Dogg offers many more functional features and just includes additional sounds as part of being a higher end product.

    Primos never has and never will intentionally try to cheat our customers and your suggestion that this issue is an example of our greed is not accurate.  We don’t want to lose any customers and certainly hope you will reconsider your belief that all of this was done intentionally to cheat our customers.

    C'mon Primos!  Get ordering the sounds figured out.  I've been checking in for weeks and no improvement.  I want the Turbo Dogg because of the quality and price, but won't buy it until I can hear and buy sounds easily online.  Your losing money because I know of people spending the extra money for a Foxpro.  Night coyote season is upon us here in Maine and mouth and hand calls stink when you'r trying to spot dogs as well.  I'm giving it another week or so then it's Foxpro I go.....

    @ Pvtpeavy8thscvi  - The call certainly sounds to have a transmit / receive defect of some sort and needs replacement.  It appeas that you have a ticket open for the issue and the replacement is in process.  Sorry fo rthe inconvenience and I have alerted the Customer Service Manager to review your ticket.

    I have not received my Alpha Dogg yet, should be here tomorrow.  Just wanted to mention that it's my understanding you can download "any" MP3 or Wave file from your computer onto the Alpha Dogg.  If this is true then just go to one of the dozen or so sites that give these downloads away for free and get busy.  That's my plan.  Dang sure not gonna pay for downloads when there are so many people giving them away for free.  Check some of the predator hunting forums and you'll find all the free calls you need.

    You know foxpro dosen't have these kinds of issues, ya you pay a little more for their calls but atleast they have them!! I guess you get what you pay for? I should have bought the foxpro? And as far as myselself and with lots of others I am very disapointed with my choice in buying a primos game caller!

    Well I'm gettig pretty tired of hearing about where is all my free sounds or crap about false avertising. I am looking rite now at my Alpha dogg box.I DO NOT SEE ANY WHERE ON THE BOX ABOUT FREE SOUNDS.All I see is "The Primos Sound Library(found at primos.com) allows you to add sounds and other newly released ExpertHunts .this written per word off of the box my call came in. Now I do not see anything there that is miss leading. As for other calls I know that foxpro charges for there sounds and they do have sample sounds that you can hear if you want to pay to hear them,if you don't want to pay you can hear a sound bite that is about 3 seconds long. you can pick up sounds on other web sites but believe me they are distoted and have a lot of back ground noise .I have tried them,I was using one of my primos sounds had a dog coming in tried one of the other sound that dog picked up the ststic and was gone in a New York second.

    primos has had a sound library up and running since Nov. and it isn't that hard to use.

    Just some input from what I have gotten so far.  This past  Monday it was cold, -10 at midnight.  My Alpha Dogg did quite well.  Remote operated good at 120 yards in 15 mph wind, from the cab of a pickup, like I said it was 10 below.  The sounds were clear and loud, good thing because I lost my tracks in the blowing snow and had to turn it on to find it.  I would reccommend a small red light, my headlamp worked well, as a failsafe in case you loose power at night.  No coyotes that trip but the Mountain Lion screams work great on the cat.  (Note!!!! Don't test that one with your tabby in your lap.)  Thanks for asking the wounds are healing nicely.  I also forgot to turn off the remote and the batteries lasted into the next evening.  I know Will and the Boys were having some growing pains, but mine seems to be hitting them outta the park.

    @ Stefano Zanini - I'm sorry but I do not understand your problem.  Please be more clear (I do not understand the term "lighting" you are using as this thread is about an electronic call product and there is no "light" involved).

    To everyone who has nothing but complaints i don't know if some of you have priced other callers on the market they range from cheap to over priced. I feel that this is a wonderful product i have never had a problem with any of my primos products. i feel that everyone should be a little more patient and i am sure primos will fix the problem soon and to primos thank you for selling quality and affordable products that work great.

    Thank you Jon & Tanya

    P.S. We love our new Turbo Dogg it works great.

    Primos sounds can now be purchased and reviewed directly from our website.  I'll add the link and a new article soon.

    I bought my Alpha Dogg about two weeks ago and have hunted every weekend since, i've called in 8 coyotes and two bobcats. Id say thats pretty good for anybody. The call works and sounds good,but i sat down at the computer to download the expert hunts and find out they dont exist yet. That pisses me off for primos to advertise something that you cant get yet. Im sure that when you can get them eventually (if its easy to download) it will be great. Im very disappointed in Primos, and hope they get their shit together soon!! Im worried now that if something goes wrong with my call, warranty will be just a big headache.
