Summer Night Calling for Hogs has Never Been Easier

For hunters, summer can be a time to sort through deer and turkey hunting gear or daydream about past hunts and those to come. But it can also be a great time to hit the woods searching for wild hogs, especially in cooler evenings when porkers are often more active during those warmer months. Convergent® offers two significant assets to help summer hunters: the Sidewinder Weapon-Mounted Game Call and the Wild Hog Pro app. 

The Sidewinder Weapon Mounted Game Call mounts directly to a hunter’s firearm. The call can also secure a smartphone on its back with the integrated phone mount, leaving the hunter with both hands free to call in and take out the hogs. The compact and lightweight 9.6-ounce Sidewinder electronic call is controlled by the smartphone and produces premium sound quality directed away from the hunter and towards the game at 100+dB. Sidewinder easily mounts to a Picatinny rail and connects to a smartphone via USB-C cable. 

Worried about recoil? Don’t be; Sidewinder has been tested and approved for calibers up to 6.8 SPC. The compact 3” x 3” x 4” design is sure to stay connected to your firearm in all situations, and the lithium-ion battery offers 5+ hours of run time on a single charge. You may run out of steam before the Sidewinder does.

There’s no more deadly combination for hunting wild hogs than the Sidewinder and Convergent’s Wild Hog Pro app for iOS or Android. This app contains a wide variety of fifteen natural wild hog sounds recorded in High Definition and digitally mastered to entice even the wariest and call-shy porkers. Programmable preset buttons allow you to play your favorite calls quickly, and more sounds can be gained via the in-app purchase of a package by professional hog caller Glenn Guess.

With both call and phone handily contained on your shooting iron, you can better concentrate on the imminent approach of wild hogs as you sit coolly in the star-lit night awaiting your freezer fodder. We can’t imagine a better way for a hunter to spend a summer’s eve.

Why spend summer nights yawning at TV reruns wishing you were in a stand overlooking a hot rut scrape? Take to the wild with a Sidewinder and the Wild Hog Pro app, and bring home the bacon.
