    What type of deer calls do you use?

    Post by I.O. Jess on Sat Apr 13, 2013 12:12 am

    So I just started to use deer calls this past season. I've never had any deer even respond to them. I was curious: What type of calls do you find has been successful for you?
    I have my dad's old Lynch grunt and a Primos Estrus can bleat that is not in the best working order anymore.

    I have all kinds of calls pack in my bag. I use rattle antlers, grunt call, snort wheeze, estrous bleat. I use them sparingly, but when you just cant seem to get his attention one of those calls usually gets him heading your way.
    For what it is worth I never blind call anymore, I never had it work...I like to be able to see the deer before I call to it, that way I know where he is, what he is doing, and can be sure that he doesnt pick me off in the tree when I am calling.

    I tend to rattle in late October early November with much success. All vocalization calls I use sparingly. One thing is for sure they only work right place right time.

    I carry the primos buck roar, primos can calls, and a set of rattling horns. I try to bring almost every call i have with me during the rut bc you never know what it is going to take to get that big buck in.

    Loving this feed back....seems like everyone uses slightly different combinations and mostly during rut. Very nice information to know...

    calls

    Post by Johngutierrez on Wed Jun 26, 2013 9:33 pm

    Ive had real good luck with the Primos can calls. I've called in a nember of bucks with it. Snort wheeze works pretty good at times as well. I always have rattling antlers along but its reall hit and miss where i hunt. My first bow kill was a buck that I rattled in.

    Sweet John! Thanks for sharing that with us! I've got all my deer from being lucky that particular one came through. I can pattern the does well, but the bucks I see that are any good is during the Rut.
