its a very expensive(the model shown is between 700-800 usd) predator calling machine used in hunting and pest extermination. its designed to be set about 30 yards away from the hunter(or and length, just 30 is suggested). there are sounds stored on a chip that is inserted into the device. they are then selected by use of a remote control. the device plays selected sound over 2 speakers. This device is used to fool predators(who instinctively stalk wounded prey) into coming within gunshot range. if i had the money i would just buy one(a lie) but i am currently unemployed(due to school, sports and art) would there be a way to make a remote controller for it or would i just have to run a wire from the caller to a mp3 player in my hand? I think wiessensteinburg meant the empty camouflaged flashlight to be a casing for the caller. but im not going to do that because A)I might build it into a camouflaged bag(so i dont have to worry too much about it fitting into a rigid frame) B)because i wouldnt want to waste money on a camouflaged flashlight even if i am using it for something else(the whole though behind a camo flashlight, you are using it in the dark, in the woods, and if you drop it...) and C)ease of transport(because i will be carrying a rifle and possibly on the way back, coyotes/fox/raccoon/opossum so the pack would be the obvious choice
FYI: I meant buying a cheap yellow one and spray painting it How much do you know about electronics and programming? There is a way to do it remotely...but not if you haven't done anything like it before.

oh, i thought you meant buy a camouflage flashlight. well, i sorta have done stuff like this. could you explain the basic stuff and skills needed to do this?
For wireless? You'd probably want to do it with infrared, you'd have to get some micro controllers, and other random electronic parts and such. And then you would get to write a program to operate it all... But I don't know enough about it to give you details though..

yea, i dont think i would be capable anyways lol. is there an instructable on how to make a amp that you recommend?
It's much easier to just buy an amp, or use speakers that have one already..

ok, thanks so i could get a pair of computer speakers, take them out of their "shell". then build a frame like contraption to hold them and put them into the pack. then run a cord(probably and extended cord) from the speaker input to a mp3 player with the sounds on it and then just play? it cant be that simple...
Well it depends...are those speakers battery powered? If so, then yes, it is that easy.

oh yea, i forgot about power... what if they aren't? (by the way, thanks for all the help!)
Then you'll have to get a transformer...which would be a pain. Go around to some garage sales/thrift stores, and try to find battery powered ones..that's your best bet.
