I don't have any experience with the new ones.I had some experience with the "trap bait" models.I didn't have any success with them,but,I honestly don't think I gave them a fair chance to prove themselves.There's a learning curve when using them I had to learn the hard way.1.Their not waterproof.I put mine out in December here in upper Michigan and a blizzard put snow into the speaker,which began producing all sorts of strange sounds.2.Sub zero temps sap alot of energy out of the batteries.In our weather we have alot of below zero temps so you have to watch the batteries in that kind of weather.In one of Charles Dobbins books he shows cutting off the wide end of a 2 liter pop bottle and setting the squeaker inside and wiring the bottle length ways to a branch over the set.This would protect it from the snow and probably amplify the squeaking.

I see where they advertise it for fox and coyotes,I'm sure it would work to some degree on them,but I think they'd do alot better with cats.I also believe Charles Robbins way of putting them in a 2 liter pop bottle would help it immensly

I used to have several different kinds of squeakers. I bought them to attract cats, but found they worked well for coyotes if the set was 20 or 30 feet away from the squeaker. I never had a coyote stick his nose to one. Cats on the other hand had no such problem. I probably caught the most cats with the squeaker in a hollow log, with a trap in front. Wet weather was hard on all the squeakers I had.

Same experience with otters Paul. Tracks would show them running back and forth about 10 feet away from the squeaker but that was a s close as they would get to it.

I used them years ago for coyote and fox. They got the animals in the area so they could find the trap. I placed them 50 to 100 feet from the trap. They did call in cats and I put them in a plastic bag to keep them out of the weather.

I pulled the trigger on a set of six. They are different than the squeakers I've tried in the past in that they are barely audible to us humans. That may serve well to get critters up closer to them without spooking. They may not pull in predators from longer distances though.

My units now have volume adjustment for when lower sounds are needed, helps with some targets,
Have not seen any other units out yet with this !
Never heard of this unit till reading about them here !

These are "cheap O" little units. No volume control..it's all low volume squeaks for 10 seconds and then quiet for ten. There is an on switch, but after that you have to pull out the batteries to stop it. Supposed to run about 10 days on 2 AAA alkalines.

So has anyone used the new Miranda Kill Squeaks? I picked up a half dozen with my most recent Minnesota order and planning to test them when I start setting next weekend. Curious if anyone has any feedback. The packaging doesnít mention whether or not they are water resistant. I was thinking I should probably put it in a little ziplock and just drop it in the dirt hole but would rather skip the ziplock if not needed.

What about using them when calling in predators to shoot?

I had thought about that senior but I think they're maybe a little too low volume unless you get one to within a few feet. And then your fresh scent is likely to spook.

Squeakers have been around for 40+ years. I think there is a reason the come and go. Maybe the advanced technology will help them.
