Key Features of ICOtec GC350
My Experience With ICOtec GC350 Coyote Hunter
ICOtec GC350 is one of those few game calls which I find very useful after a very long time in my hunting sessions. It is very lightweight, it only weighs around 1.9 lbs and its dimensions are 8x4x6 inches which makes it very easy to carry. There is also a round handle on the top with a nob of the main unit which makes the main unit very easy to carry.
ICOtec GC350 comes with 24 calls only which are programmable which means you can add or remove any calls and add a new one. You can attract Crow, Bobcat, Woodpecker, Owl, Snow Geese, and even a Wild Turkey. It has only 1 speaker of 15-watt capacity which I found quite loud enough for my hunting.
The remote range of ICOtec GC350 is 300 yards which are enough for a hunter like me. It takes a 12-Volt A23 battery to operate, and there are 12 call buttons set up as A or B to get a total of 24 calls.
There are two ports in the main unit of the ICOtec GC350 game call. One port is to connect an external speaker for more loud noise, the second port is an AUX port, you can use this port to connect a decoy for better hunting.
ICOtec GC350 comes with a tripod mount for better sound coverage. Thank GOD, the tripod mount feature was there, it helped me a lot in my hunting.
In-Depth ICOtec GC350 Review
The sound quality of the ICOtec GC350 is very good, it is very hard to differentiate between the real animal sound and the ICOtec GC350 game call. With the help of a 15-watt speaker, the sound coming out of the ICOtec GC350 is quite loud. For most of the hunting, I didn’t feel the need of having another speaker, 1 was enough for me.
Let’s talk about the connectivity of the ICOtec GC350 game call. There are mainly two ports in the main unit, one port is an Auxiliary port and the second port is to connect an external speaker with it. An Auxiliary port is used to attach a decoy for a better hunting experience, unfortunately, no decoy comes with the box, you have bought it additionally.
The second port is to connect an external speaker with it, in case you are hunting on a large field and the sound coming out of the 15-watt speaker is low, so you can add an external speaker with the main unit and can increase the level of noise. Personally, I didn’t feel the need of using an external speaker, for me the inbuilt one was enough.
After explaining the “Connectivity” feature of the ICOtec GC350, I’ll try to explain the remote of it, so you can get an overview of it. The remote range is around 300 yards that means you can control the main unit from a distance of 300 yards, usually, we hunters don’t sit that far away from the main unit.
The Remote control takes a 12-Volt A23 battery to get started, it has 12 call buttons set up as A and B to get a total of 24 calls. Buttons of the remote controller are quite sensitive to touch and easily pressed even with the slightest bump.
As we already know that there are a total of 24 game calls inbuilt in the unit. The sound quality is super neat. Unfortunately, you can’t add more than 24 calls but these calls are programmable which means you can delete any animal sound and replace it with a new one by uploading it to the micro SD card.
With the help of animal calls, I was able to attract Crow, Bobcat, Woodpecker, Owl, Snow Geese, and a Wild Turkey.
ICOtec GC350’s build quality is quite tough, although it is not water-proof which can cause problems in wet weather. It is a durable and rugged unit. After my many hunting, there were only a few scratches on the body.
The main unit takes 4 AA batteries to start working, unfortunately, you will not get these batteries along with the box, you have to buy them separately.
The remote controller of the ICOtec GC350 unit takes a 12-Volt A23 battery which is included along with the box so you don’t have to buy it separately.
Tripod Mount Feature
I personally liked the Tripod mount feature and uses it quite often on my hunting. With the help of the tripod mount feature, you can keep your main unit at a height by attaching it to a tripod for better reach on the ground.
ICOtec GC350 comes with a 1 year of warranty.
