Operations and Troubleshooting Guide
The following is a guide to assist you with the operations & troubleshooting of your new Chase MP3
electronic game caller. We appreciate you as our new customer & wish you the best of success! This
document has been prepared to further inform you of all the in depth operations & troubleshooting of
the unit! Good luck & happy hunting!
KEY PAD & REMOTE KEY OPERATIONS
ON/OFF KEY: The ON/OFF (POWER) key on the game caller is designed to manually turn your
game caller to the on or off status! This key will power your game caller on for the initial start up. This
key must be activated before you can control the game caller with the wireless remote supplied with
your unit. The unit will give a “BEEP” sound soon after power on.
The ON/OFF key on the remote control is designed to remotely turn the game caller to the on or
standby status once you have activated the game caller. Press the key on the remote once to turn unit
off, press again to power game caller back on. When game caller is in a standby mode, it is operating
on minimum battery consumption. If the ON/OFF key doesn’t appear to work on the remote, please
check the battery and replace it if indicating low battery. Low battery level will also affect the
operation of the keypad! Make sure that the game caller is installed with full or half-full batteries
before taking it to the field! If the ON/OFF key on the remote appears not to be working, please check
the battery icon on the LCD & replace battery. (See Battery Maintenance)
OFF KEY: The ON/OFF key on the game caller is designed to manually turn the caller off! This must
be done when you have completed the use of the game caller! You must press & hold down this key
until the unit gives a “BEEP-BEEP” sound! The OFF key on the remote is the same key as the ON key.
This key is designed to remotely place the caller into a “Standby Mode” while in use! This key will not
power off the game caller for non-use & storing. The battery will discharge if you fail to manually turn
unit off the caller at the main keypad! (See Battery Maintenance)
PLAY KEY: The PLAY key on the remote will start the “Play Mode” of the pre-selected sound you
have chosen from the remote location. The game caller will play the selected sound. The PLAY key on
the remote can be activated by firmly pressing the key. Press & hold is not required. If the PLAY key
on the remote appears not to work, check the battery & replace. (See Battery Maintenance)
PAUSE KEY: The PAUSE key on the remote will pause the play of the current sound selected from a
remote location. The PAUSE key on the remote can be activated by firmly pressing of the key. Press
PLAY will restart the paused sound. The volume on the unit will automatically resume at the same
level as previous setting when this function is activated. If you wish to adjust the volume at this point
simply press the volume up or volume down key to reset at desired setting. If the PAUSE key on the

the NEXT key on the game caller will play the next sound! The NEXT key on the remote allows the
user to scan in an upward selection motion to arrive at the desired sound to play from a remote location
that is seen on the LCD. To activate, firmly press and release for each scan of the next selection. Press

the sound you wish. For best results, rename and reload sounds in your special grouping. If the
PREVIOUS key appears not to work properly, check the battery for battery life. If you use the key
pad(s) on the game caller to operate the functions of the caller, the LCD on the remote control will not
show the same information. The game caller will react to the information data transmitted by remote.

LOADING & DOWNLOADING SOUNDS
The Chase MP3 game caller is the most state of the art calling system available to date. This caller
offers you the flexibility of its huge 1GB of memory, which will store 400 sounds and also allows you
the ability to add and remove sounds from its hard drive as you wish. The Chase has a 1GB hard drive
that can be linked to your home personal computer via the MINI-USB cord and allow you to save the
pre-loaded sounds to your hard drive. You will need a personal computer with Windows XP or newer.
To activate this procedure you will need to connect the USB cord to your computer, power on your
Chase game caller, then insert USB cord into Chase USB port.
A successful USB connection can be shown on computer. Once this is done, go to the “My Computer”
icon on your personal computer main screen and double click on it. The Chase game caller should be
recognized as a removable drive. Click on that drive and it should display the sounds stored on the
game caller. NOTE: At this time we recommend that you save all the sounds on the game caller to
your personal computer before proceeding. This can be done by selecting “EDIT” from the tool bar
and then clicking “SELECT ALL”. Once this is completed choose the file location in which you wish
to save them. After you have stored your sounds successfully then you are ready to update the sounds
on the Chase hard drive that you wish. Note: Any sound loaded onto the unit must be formatted
to .mp3 or .wav before the game caller will recognize it. Simply locate the sound that you wish to load
on to the Chase and right click on the computer mouse. You should see a “Send or Send To” option.
Click on this option and send the sound desired to the designated drive that represents the Chase on
your computer. The game caller has 1 GB of memory, which allows for approximately 1000 minutes
of recorded .mp3 & .wav sounds. IMPORTANT: Remember to save the pre-selected sounds that came
with your unit to your personal computer prior to erasing any of the sounds.
NOTE: You should not unplug the USB cord form the personal computer or the Chase without
ejecting the unit first. This can be done by selecting the “My Computer” option on your desktop and
then choosing the appropriate “removable drive” that symbolizes the Chase unit. Next step is to right
click on the mouse and a box should drop down. Select the “Eject” option. You should then be advised
that it is safe to remove or unplug the Chase at this time.
UPLOADING PLAYLIST TO REMOTE CONTROL: To update the remote control play list with
the new selection that you have added or deleted from the game caller, simply turn on or leave the
power on the game caller after the selection update and power on the remote control. Plug the uplink

auxiliary cord into the game caller and then into the remote. The update should start automatically. The
LCD on the remote will prompt you when the task has been completed.
SOUND SELECTION REPEAT/LOOP: All sounds will automatically repeat/loop at the end and
start over without hesitation.
USB PORT: The USB port is located on front of game caller. This port will allow you to connect your
game caller to any personal computer that contains a USB port to load or remove any sound that you
may wish. The Chase has to be in the POWER ON status before you can connect to your personal
computer. (USB cable supplied with game caller)
REMOTE CONTROL UPLINK PORT: This port is for allowing the uploading of data (playlist)
from the game caller to the remote control. (Uplink cable supplied with game caller)
EXTREME CLIMATE & OPERATION CONDITIONS
Your new Western Rivers Chase MP3 Game Caller is designed to withstand most rugged Field Use
conditions. However, we highly recommend that you never leave your unit in a place where the
temperature exceeds 110 degrees for a prolonged period of time as this may cause damage to your unit.
When using your Chase Game Caller in extreme cold weather conditions, place some form of warming
device around the unit to achieve normal operation conditions. Place the remote control unit close to
your body to keep it warm as well. Notes: The Chase is designed to operate outdoors at operation
conditions of 13°F to 110°F in most all weather conditions. However, extreme conditions of the
climate can alter the operating conditions of the unit and the above may vary depending on the
extremity of your outdoor use. You may experience shorter remote control distances, decreased
operational time, slower keypad response and minimum sound variances depending on your conditions.
Altitude, weather & foliage are major factors in the remote’s range. Any visual obstructions between
the remote and the Chase unit can decrease the operational range of the unit. The yardage range quote
is based on ideal operational conditions in a line of sight situation at a temperature of 70 degrees with a
fully charged battery in the unit & a new battery in the remote. Other conditions may cause the results
to vary.
BATTERY MAINTENANCE
CHASE UNIT: The Chase unit is designed to operate on (3) AAA alkaline batteries. Batteries must
be removed from game caller when not in use. Failure to the game caller caused by defective
batteries will void your lifetime warranty.
Operation time for the unit may yield ~2 hours of use pending the temperature conditions when in use.
Extreme cold & hot temperatures will greatly decrease operation times. It is best to always carry extra
batteries with you.

Operations and Troubleshooting Guide
REMOTE CONTROL: To change the battery in the remote control, simply pull outward on the
lower back part of the remote. Battery is a 9V alkaline. Battery should be changed at the beginning of
each season. If you notice that the range of your remote has decreased it is suggested that you replace
the battery at this time. Batteries must be removed from game caller when not in use. Failure to
the game caller caused by defective batteries will void your warranty.
NOTE: Should you leave your Chase remote on for 10 minutes without use; the remote will
automatically turn off. The normal operating battery life for the Chase remote is approximately 100 200 hours. This time may decrease depending on the temperature and the quality of batteries you have
purchased. Always take a spare battery with you on the hunt.
BACKLIGHT (LCD): The backlight on the LCD on the remote will turn off automatically after 5
second of on time without being used. Any touch of the key will cause the LCD backlight to reilluminate.
PC OPERATING SYSTEMS REQUIRED
Your PC must be Windows XP or newer to recognize the Chase.
OPERATIONS
Once you have familiarized yourself with all the features, then it is time for the field test. Place the
unit out in an outdoor setting and position the unit in a desired location that is natural to the area for
the type of calling that you are attempting. Check the volume settings, select sounds, direction of
speaker & step off various distances to check the unit vs. your own abilities of sight and hearing.
Run different tests from sound selection, pause-play the volume levels to better understand the unit.
After this is done, start scouting different area for signs and try your unit in the field. Remember
that the more sets that you make in a day the more opportunity that you will have to take your
desired game home. (Not necessary when whitetail hunting)
