  • Estrus doe Bleat vs. Yearling

    So... almost every year I come across what I call "The Goat Doe" which is a very vocal yearling doe. I don't believe mature doe want to be around her, and I don't think bucks want her (at least that early in the season).
    I usually use a can call, and try to keep the bleats high pitched for estrus bleats. Still I think the goat doe may hear this and come looking. Any thoughts?

        Never had luck with any calls, and the only vocalizations I've heard in the wild came after it had been shot

              I've had some success with doe bleats. Admittedly, I largely grunt and bleat with just my mouth. I do it periodically in the early season and more often the deeper I get into the season.
              I may or may not choose to do it with deer in sight unless it looks like they may pass by me wide, or are moving directly away.

              I will say that I've tried it with a lot of deer in sight. As far as I know it hasn't started any and sent them running. Buck are generally at least curious and occasionally come in aggressively. Seems that in a large group of does it generally just gets ignored but they seem to relax about looking in my direction and may shift to feed closer. With singles or just a small family group of doe and yearlings, they are more likely to wander towards the call.
              Just my observations. It could be that every time I do it deer out of my line of sight head for the horizon, but of those I had eyes on, it hasn't been the case.
